Why Andover? The opportunity to grow drastically and immensely as a learner, a friend, an athlete, a community member, an impactful and thoughtful citizen. And to surround yourself with those from all over the world, broadening your own world vision and in the process understanding what it means to truly embody non sibi — growing and learning so much about yourself that you are then equipped with the tools to be an impactful community member and person moving forward.

At Andover, I have found best friends, my passions, and a life-long community. Here, I get to set the pace for my own growth as a student and a person, while taking in all the energy and curiosity that our campus has to offer.

Andover is the perfect place for you to grow: with fantastic academics, a diverse community, and countless opportunities to discover something new or build upon a current interest.

I came to Andover because of the people. The community that is fostered on campus is nothing other than one big happy family. The endless support you get for the various challenges at Andover is amazing. Also, the athletic program at Andover is incredible.

Andover is my home away from home. I can recall the paths of the campus like the back of my hand, and my friends and teachers have become my family. Because of Andover, I have become more creative, confident, and compassionate. Andover truly brings out the best in people, and you won't be an exception to that :)

Welcome to Andover! I hope you love our campus and community as much as I do! As you can see, PA is a truly wonderful family and I would love for you to be a part of it.

Hello! My name is Ava and I'm a four-year senior from Wellesley, MA. On campus, I am the founder of Andover Business Club, the advertising manager for our weekly student-run newspaper The Phillipian, and I can often be found working out in the gym. I enjoy Calculus and History in particular, but I could honestly say I like all my classes equally. I can't wait to meet you and answer your questions about Andover!

Hi! My name is Ross and I am a rising senior at Andover. The school has a lot to offer, whether it be music, athletics, or academics, and I'd be glad to answer any questions you might have about any of it. I am so happy you are looking deeper into what our school is all about, and please feel free to reach out to me for more information.

Hi! I hope you all are staying safe and well during this time of uncertainty within the world. Thank you for taking the time to look at and consider Andover! I wish I could be with you, in person, answering questions, and touring you around our beautiful campus. However, in the meantime, welcome, and please reach out if there's anything I can do for you!

Hi! My name is Clara, and I am a two-year rising senior at PA!

Welcome! I am so happy you are choosing to look at Andover! It is truly the best decision I have made. Let me know anyway I can help you get a feel for the school!

Hey!!! Welcome to Andover! I hope that you are having a great day and staying safe right now. I am a rising senior and I have been at Andover for 2 years. At Andover I participate in all sorts of activities such as squash, photography, dance, and student activities. The reason why I mention this is because before coming to Andover I had never done any of these activities and I learned them all from great teachers and coaches. Andover is a place where you get to learn things that you have never tried or maybe have never even heard of. It is truly the warmest and nicest environment. If you have any questions for me feel free to reach out and send an email!

Hi! I'm super happy that you're interested in Andover. I hope that via our Admissions team, I will be able to show you why I fell in love with and decided to attend Andover.

Welcome to Andover! My name is Haven O’Sullivan and I am a three year upper boarding student. I am so excited to share with you why Andover is home to me!

Welcome to Andover! My name is Sawyer and I am a rising upper (11th grader). I entered Andover as a new lower (10th grader). This is a place like no other and you will meet so many incredible people. Within my first year of attending Andover, I have made so many great friends, broadened my learning horizons, and learned so much from my teachers, coaches, and advisors. I love Andover and you will too!

Hi guys! My name is Hailey and I am a four year senior (I live locally so I am also a day student)! I am super excited to be your tour guide today!!! One of my favorite parts about Andover is it's campus. I am always amazed at how pretty everything looks, whether it be walking in between classes at the start of the year, heading to dinner in a snowstorm or lawning (what we call lying on the Great Lawn...yes, its a verb) during a sunset. Hopefully, on this tour you will see some of Andover's beauty and learn more about the academic, athletic, and social aspects of PA.

Welcome to PA! Even though we cannot physically walk together on campus, I am excited to share my experience and a piece of our community with you. One of the reasons I applied here is because Andover offers Russian Language classes, and it gives me something to look forward to everyday. I also took History 300 this year, and despite my lack of knowledge when it comes to US history, I did end up enjoying the class, as it provides an insight into the current state of this country.

Hey (prospective family name) family! Welcome to Phillips Academy Andover. I am Leo Deng, a four-year senior from Long Island, New York. On campus, I do painting, play the tenor sax in the jazz band, sing in the choir, and run distance all year long. In my free time, I write poetry/fiction, review music, go sea fishing, and design clothing. I am so excited to meet you all!

Hi! Although I was initially hesitant as an eighth-grader about moving away from home, deciding to come to Andover was the best decision I have ever made. I have been able to meet and become close friends with so many talented teenagers from all over the world. Andover also provides so many opportunities and resources that have allowed me to grow not only as a student but as an overall person. I have been able to find new passions while still developing my previous interests. There is space for everyone to thrive at Andover. I hope you will soon find a second home at Andover as I have.
