Annual Summer Opportunities Fair
The 26th annual Summer Opportunities Fair sponsored by Parents of Students of Phillips Academy (PSPA) will take place on Sunday, January 24, 2016 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Smith Center, on the Phillips Academy campus located off Route 28 near the intersection of Dwight Street on the Phillips Academy campus in Andover, Massachusetts. Representatives from approximately 100 local, national and international summer opportunities programs will be available to talk with interested students and their families. This unique fair offers a wide range of programs that focus on academic enrichment, language study, community service, camps, sports, arts, research, internships, outdoor adventure, international travel & gap year opportunities, and more for middle school and high school students.
The Gap Year Fair will be held from 3 to 5:30 p.m. in Borden Gym, located behind the admissions office on the campus of Phillips Academy. This event is sponsored by USA Gap Year Programs, which holds 30 such fairs across the country each year. There will be a featured speaker from 3:00 to 3:30 pm. A gap year is a year that high school graduates use to pursue other experiences before going off to college. The popularity of gap years is growing at an exponential rate in the United States and the demand for these events has increased dramatically.
The fairs will be open to the public, and you do not need to register to attend. Admission is free and the facility is wheelchair-accessible.
