A Dynamic Campus

Our campus is truly a home—a scenic 500-acre setting for both living and learning, at once reflective and vibrant.

Now Knowledge & Goodness will usher in the next bold evolution of the campus—and meet the growing demands of our community.

The Snyder Center is the first of these exciting projects, housing a 200-meter track, 12 squash courts, and multiuse space for tennis, basketball, and other sports. A new aquatics center will also rise to serve our water sports teams and the wider needs of our students, faculty, and staff.

Elsewhere on campus, we will break ground on a new academic building specifically designed for students and faculty who study music theory, composition, and performance at Andover. We will also revitalize the Oliver Wendell Holmes Library to give our students a state-of-the-art learning experience. During this landmark renovation, we will create more adaptable and interactive teaching spaces while preserving the library’s unique heritage. And we will double the size of our makerspace, enabling our students to leverage technology in ways that close the gap between theory and practice.

How do today’s campus projects advance Andover’s vision for the future?
Whether in the academic or athletic realm, our campus projects include exible and multipurpose spaces to directly address Andover’s commitment to improve the student experience. Each project design considers the core priorities of the Academy’s Strategic Plan and supports programs to promote inclusion, interdisciplinary collaboration, and interaction. In this way, all campus projects play a critical role in supporting connected learning and personal well-being.

Why is now the right time to move these projects forward?
Actually, this work is overdue. The identified projects are urgent because they address outdated, intensively utilized spaces that were built in another era and that cannot adequately support current programmatic needs. Athletics facilities built mostly in the 1950s and before, designed for a 600-student boys’ school, do not satisfy the needs of our vibrant coed varsity, JV, intramural, and life-sports programs of today. Music instruction in the basement of a former science building is makeshift at best, and the last OWHL renovation occurred before the Internet was invented. The right time to address these issues for our students and the future is most certainly now.
