Andover’s Partnership with Parents and Guardians

We seek to build connections with parents and guardians during your student’s time at Andover. Our shared commitment is to the individual growth, intellectual development, and the health and well-being of every student. Please find our articulation of the values and principles that define our partnership in this endeavor. As we embark on a new year, we thank you for your compassion and support.

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.

Student BlueCards

Andover students use their BlueCard IDs for building access and to pay for various goods and services around campus. Families can add funds to their students' BlueCard at any time.


Meet Jennifer Vasquez, director of the office of family engagement, and watch her brief welcome message.
