Family Bulletin July 2024

To view the July edition of the Family Bulletin, go here.


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 for 2024-2025, you will be prompted for a passphrase (Andover24). Please only share the passphrase with immediate family members. We look forward to seeing you at the Opening of School ceremonies.

Note: The Opening of School schedule for 2024-2025 is now live!
