be daring. first of all, don’t be afraid to apply. i never thought i’d even get into andover. but i got in—and i got financial aid. without it, i wouldn’t be here.”
you come to andover because of the 1,100 other students who come to andover. they are, as our founding charter calls for them to be, “youth from every quarter.” they’re talented in quirky and serious ways, they have ideas and opinions like— but mostly unlike—yours, they have fascinating histories and surprising ambitions and generous hearts. they come because they love ideas and learning and discovering. and they come because maybe you will be here too.

the andover admission office is eager to assist you as you search for an independent high school.
