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.

“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
