Program & Information

This section provides a brief introduction to Andover's rich and always evolving program. A common theme throughout is that students and teachers model for each other a commitment to inquiry and performance that makes Andover a truly vibrant and deliberately diverse community of learners.

Because students make significant leaps in their cognitive and personal development during their high school years, teaching methods at Andover are varied to suit these developmental stages and to introduce methods of inquiry specific to certain disciplines. As you will see in the Course of Study, classes offered range from quick-paced introductions that provide the structure and preparation for progressively more abstract and advanced study, often well beyond introductory college courses. Complementing their coursework, students work with community partners both on and off campus, write, create and edit for student publications, expand and explore new interests through scholars programs and clubs, and participate in artistic exhibitions and performances throughout the year.
