        More Information on Optional Additional Programs

        Ace Your Tests

        Princeton Review courses prepare students for the verbal, quantitative, and reading comprehension sections of the SAT, ACT and SSAT standardized tests. The Princeton Review class will focus on vocabulary, verbal reasoning, and the ability to relate ideas logically, to solve problems involving arithmetic, elementary algebra and geometry and concepts as well the student’s ability to understand what he/she read.

        Students will learn efficient test-taking strategies which, alongside the additional full-length practice test, will help relieve test taking anxiety and allow for students to maximize their score.

        At the start of the program, each student will take a diagnostic full-length test for evaluation and placement purposes as well as a practice final full-length test to chart score improvements over the duration of the course. Detailed personalized score analyses are given to the student to evaluate their performance and pinpoint individual strengths and weaknesses.

        • Students enrolled in the SAT Prep Course will cover all sections of the exam. Students will take two full-length practice exams, with an optional third test available. They will have complete access to the Princeton Review Online Student Center at the conclusion of the course and can continue to improve their skills after Summer Session ends.
        • Students enrolled in the ACT Prep Course will have an extensive review of all ACT content. Students will learn test-taking strategies and take three full-length practice exams, with an optional, at-home fourth test. They will have complete access to the Princeton Review Online Student Center at the conclusion of the course and can continue to improve their skills.

        Cost: $950

        SSAT Prep Course

        Course similar to the SAT/ACT described above, but focused on SSAT Preparation; open to Lower School Institute students. $950

        Building Best Study Practices

        Open to Upper School students, Essential Study Skills is an optional course designed to teach students the skills to thrive, both academically and personally, in challenging school environments. Invited to nurture the broader dispositions that lead to academic success, students will emerge from the course with a toolkit of strategies they can use throughout their academic careers and beyond for:

        • finding (and maintaining) curiosity and motivation
        • cultivating optimism and resilience
        • developing essential academic skills
        • applying learning strategies for improved time management and effective study.

        Essential Study Skills meets four days a week for 90 minute course periods.

        A friendly note: this course is especially recommended for students who believe they have room to improve academically or are anticipating an imminent transition to a markedly more rigorous academic experience than that to which they are accustomed. A student who is currently content with their approach to academic work and finds that their study strategies are successful, while welcome in this course, will likely not benefit to the same extent as a student who sees room for growth.

        Cost: $600

        Practice and Perform

        Students are invited to sign up for music lessons to keep their practice going strong throughout the summer. They may choose from four 60-minute private lessons; practice rooms and instrument rentals are available. Summer Session musicians are also invited to take part in an end-of-session performance.

        Cost: $400

        Get a jump on the college admissions process

        Open to Upper School students, the College Counseling program provides students with an insider's look at the college admissions process. Registration for this program provides students with:

        • The opportunity to participate in information sessions held 4x/week on a variety of aspects of the college process, from selection and application to comparing financial aid packages and choosing a major. Each session includes a guest speaker from a college or university admissions office, with previous years' speakers hailing from institutions like Harvard, Amherst, Dartmouth, and Brown (no fee to take part in these workshops).

        Cost: $300

        Financial Aid

        We understand that the cost of on-campus programs may be prohibitive for some students and families, and as such, we directly allocate or partner with supporting organizations to provide nearly half a million dollars in financial aid each summer, ensuring broad access to the Andover Summer experience. Typically, only families working with Andover Summer Program Partners are eligible for Financial Aid. Please contact the Summer Session Office if you have questions about the possibility of working with one of our Program Partners.

        On occasion, a very limited amount of funding is available after our allocation to program partners. If you wish to be considered for any remaining aid, both your Andover Summer and financial aid application must be completed no later than March 1, 2022. Andover Summer uses the School & Student Services by the National Association of Independent Schools (SSS by NAIS) to process the Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). Based on the financial information you provide, SSS by NAIS presents Andover Summer with an estimated family contribution available for educational purposes. Upon electronic receipt of your information from SSS by NAIS, Andover Summer recalculates all PFS information using our own standards and policies to make fair and objective financial aid decisions. Please note that even if you have several children applying, you need only complete one PFS.
