Andover’s Partnership with Parents and Guardians

We hope to build connections with parents and guardians during your student’s time here at Andover. The growth and well-being of our young people is our common commitment. Our shared goal is that our students graduate from Andover as healthy, independent, engaged, and empathic individuals. Please find our articulation of the values and principles that define our partnership in this endeavor. We understand that the past eighteen months have tested all of us in our capacities to care for and meet our high expectations of each other. As we embark on a new year that will no doubt continue to challenge us all, we thank you for your compassion, partnership, and support.

[footnote]

Family Weekend is held every October. Meet our faculty, attend classes, watch Big Blue athletic teams and witness Grasshopper Night—Andover's student-run talent show.

A large and important foundation of support for your child is the Andover student body. These young people aren’t just smart. They’re nice.
