Andover Summer

The Andover Summer programs application and enrollment portals will be available in early November for the Summer of 2022!

Established in 1942, Phillips Academy's Summer Session in Andover, Massachusetts, is widely recognized as one of the nation’s premier summer academic enrichment programs, helping students from across the United States and around the world to achieve ambitious educational goals. Phillips Academy’s flagship summer program, an intensive five week on-campus residential experience, is designed to prepare students for the rigors of the nation’s top high schools and colleges, as well as the challenge of leading and serving in this complex world. Over the last decade, Summer Session has evolved into three distinct programs under the umbrella of Andover Summer: Summer Session (5 weeks, on-campus), eSummer (5 weeks, virtual) and Andover Advantage (2 weeks, on-campus). Through an extensive array of both innovative and traditional courses, the entire Andover Summer program serves nearly 1000 students from all parts of the world each summer, offering them a truly transformative educational experience. Please browse through each of our distinct programs to find the one best suited to you.

Live informational webinar opportunities will be advertised here and on our social media sites beginning in early November. We encourage you to take part in one or more of these webinars to learn about all of our Andover Summer program options as well as hear from our 2021 ambassadors who will share their own experiences with our on-campus and eSummer programs.

The application and registration portals for all Andover Summer programs will be available at the beginning of November. Check back frequently for updates.

Explore this website for more comprehensive information on each type of program, so you can better select the one that works for you.
