Use of the Chapel for weddings and baptisms is regretfully, but necessarily, confined to alumni of both Phillips and Abbot academies and current members of our staff and faculty (and their children). For those who qualify, requests may be made by contacting Gail Ralston, office manager of Cochran Chapel Office at 978.749.4130 or  

In addition to checking the calendar for availability, information regarding fees, building accessibility and size, clergy on staff, etc. can be addressed.

After recently completing an $11 million renovation, the Andover Inn has reopened. Located on the PA campus, next to Cochran Chapel, this facility is able to provide guest accommodations, dining options, and private function rooms. For more information, contact the Inn directly at 978.775.4900 or at

Please note: Because the Roman Catholic Archdiocese has ruled that Roman Catholic weddings within its purview should be celebrated in parish churches only, and not in secondary school chapels, we are only able to accommodate Roman Catholic weddings after special permission has been granted by the Archdiocese. More information about these guidelines and the appropriate forms  can be made available by contacting the Chapel Office.
