Faculty and Academics

Andover’s exceptional instructors are the guarantors of excellence and a cornerstone of the student experience.

More than 200 faculty bring their expertise and compassion to every conversation, every teaching moment—in classrooms and labs, in residence halls and performance halls, on playing fields and beyond. Today, we reaffirm our devotion to our teachers and to our academic enterprise.

We will recruit and retain top instructors by endowing fellows, curators, and coaches across the Academy. We will seek new teaching foundations, faculty innovation funds, and sabbatical support to further encourage thought leadership and intellectual exchange. We will also sponsor new student-faculty partnerships that promote original research and interdisciplinary perspectives. These areas of growth, paired with other distinctive endeavors such as the Tang Institute, will strengthen Andover’s preeminent position in secondary education.
