Parents and Grandparents

One direct way parents can help is to make an annual gift to the Parent Fund, providing 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

  • Get involved with Parents of Students of Phillips Academy (PSPA), an independently run parents group.
  • Host a parent gathering in your area.
  • Become a host for an international student.
