Andover Summer

Established in 1942, Phillips Academy's Summer Session in Andover, Massachusetts, is the premier summer academic enrichment program in the country helping students from across the United States and around the world to achieve their educational goals. For five weeks, students with ambitious academic goals prepare for the rigors of the best colleges and the challenge of leading and serving in this complex world. Through an extensive array of both innovative and traditional courses, Andover Summer brings together more than 600 students from all parts of the world for the experience of a lifetime.

With the upheaval of spring 2020 behind us, and having successfully wrapped up Andover's first-ever online summer program, we have now shifted our focus to begin planning for the summer of 2021. Given the uncertainty that remains around the feasibility of travel and on-campus programming, and the reality that we live in an ever-changing world, we are planning to offer both our traditional on-campus Andover Summer program, as well as a concurrent online alternative through our eSummer program. More details will be available as the year progresses, and we encourage students to begin an application for the program of their choice, knowing that should global circumstances change, they may switch programs.

“Summer at Andover should be liberating for both students and faculty members. Teaching and learning by choice, surrounded by peers of the highest caliber, results in the kind of inspiration that will last a lifetime.”

Beth Friedman Director of Summer Session and Outreach

Summer at Andover is a fun, educational, and life-changing experience.
Outreach Programs
