Parents and Grandparents


One direct way parents can help is to make an annual gift to the Parent Fund, a component of the Andover Fund, which provides critical unrestricted current-use resources for the Academy.

  • Gifts to the Parent Fund support Andover’s programs and people and benefit all Andover students.
  • Every parent is asked to contribute each year. Grandparents and parents of alumni also participate.

The Andover Fund, together with the Parent Fund, advances our mission to prepare youth from every quarter for lives of leadership and service.

Some families additionally choose to support one or more of the Academy’s capital and/or endowment priorities, investing in Andover’s students today and future generations.

A gift to the Parent Fund is a gift to the Knowledge & Goodness Campaign.

Ways to Get Involved

Becoming a volunteer offers parents an opportunity to have a positive impact on students and the Academy as a whole. Deepen your engagement with Andover through one of these opportunities:

  • Join the Parent Fund Committee, helping to sustain the Academy’s tradition of excellence.
  • Get involved with Parents of Students of Phillips Academy (PSPA), an independently run parents group.
  • Host a virtual parent gathering for families in your area.
  • Become a host for an international student.

Important resources

Announcements, calendars, reports related to your student can be found on The Hive, Andover’s parent portal.

The PSPA is a parent run organization, independent of Phillips Academy, which supports Andover with campus events for parents and managing the Campus Closet. Visit their site for more information.
