Our Mission

Founded in 1988, PALS is an academic enrichment and high school preparation program for students from the city of Lawrence, MA. PALS, which stands for Phillips Academy and Lawrence Schools, brings 40 middle schoolers to the Andover campus for a free, five week program each summer.

Who We Serve

PALS works with students the summer before their 7th grade and 8th grade years.

What We Do

Along with academic enrichment, study skills, and learning strategies, PALS provides information about high school options and support for a successful transition to secondary school.
