About Phillips Andover Academy
Established in 1778, Phillips Academy is a co-educational, boarding secondary school located just north of Boston and which educates students of intelligence and integrity from diverse cultural, racial, socioeconomic and geographic backgrounds. Our motto, Non sibi, not for self, was forged by Paul Revere into the original seal 240 years ago. The school's residential structure enables faculty to support students in their personal, social and intellectual development. The academic program fosters excellence in all disciplines within the liberal arts tradition. Faculty members guide students in mastering skills, acquiring knowledge and thinking critically, creatively and independently. The school strives to help young people achieve their potential not only intellectually, but also artistically, athletically and morally, so that they may lead responsible and fulfilling lives.
The Academy embraces equity, inclusion, and wellness and is committed to establishing a community that encourages people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs to understand and respect one another and to embrace differences of race, gender, gender identity, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, national origin..., and religion. In its programs, the school seeks to promote a balance of leadership, cooperation and service, together with a deeper awareness of the global community and the natural world.
Andover's 1778 Constitution charges the academy to prepare "Youth from every quarter" to understand that "goodness without knowledge is weak...yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous." This obligation challenges students, faculty, and staff in mind, body and spirit to see beyond themselves and to go beyond the familiar; to remain committed to developing what is finest in themselves and others, for others and themselves.
