2022-2023 Information for Families

We hope you are enjoying a restful and rejuvenating summer. We look forward to welcoming students in September, and are deep in our campus preparation. Stay tuned as we continue to add new information in the coming weeks. While email remains our primary mode of communication, this page is designed to give families a central location for Opening of School information and important notices throughout the school year.

Family Information Video Series

To ease the onboarding experience, we are spearheading a new initiative to provide families with important information that we hope will help with your transition to Andover this fall.

The Dean of Health and Wellness, the Dean of Students, and the Dean of Studies will provide an overview of their services through video recordings or live webinars. In our first video, please meet Dr. Amy Patel, who shares important health information, including services available on campus and what you need to do before your student comes to campus—COVID testing, required health paperwork, etc.

Andover’s Partnership with Parents and Guardians

We seek to build connections with parents and guardians during your student’s time at Andover. Our shared commitment is to the individual growth, intellectual development, and the health and wellbeing of every student. Please find our articulation of the values and principles that define our partnership in this endeavor. As we embark on a new year, we thank you for your compassion and support.


All students and families should download the Andover Event Guides app, available through Apple's App Store and Google Play. This app will contain schedules for important campus events and will help families track the times and locations of everything happening during the Opening of School. Please “accept notifications” so that you will receive notice of any venue changes.

When accessing the Opening of School guide you will be prompted for a passphrase (Andover22). Please only share the passphrase with immediate family members. We look forward to seeing you at the Opening of School ceremonies.
