Knowledge & Goodness: The Andover Campaign

Knowledge & Goodness: The Andover Campaign seeks to animate the values we hold dear and shape our school for the 21st century.

Together, we will invest in need-based financial aid, in innovations in teaching and learning, and in campus facilities that expand the mind and restore the body. We will create new opportunities to engage with the world, to build student and faculty partnerships, and to nurture dialogue that promotes genuine understanding of self and others.

We will unite to change lives—and transform the Andover experience for generations to come.

As a trustee, but more importantly as a donor of almost 30 consecutive years, I feel compelled to be an early investor in this campaign. I am committed to Andover and know that Knowledge & Goodness will have a tremendous impact.

A commitment to need-blind admission and financial aid truly separates Andover from its peers. It is an exceptional promise to our talented students—and one we should all be proud to uphold.

Now is the time to join us on this journey.

Our campaign will be the largest ever for Andover and among all independent secondary schools. Our goals are ambitious, but the impact of Knowledge & Goodness will be nothing short of historic.

The campaign’s title may be familiar, as it draws from our constitution and invokes values prized since our founding. Yet it speaks much more to our future than to our past. The world needs a place like Andover, and Andover needs to rise confidently in the world.

We must continue to educate and inspire our students to tackle the most challenging issues of our time and to do so with both head and heart. We must give them every chance to grow, to fail, to succeed, and to lead lives of lasting value.

Our campaign priorities illuminate every aspect of the Andover experience and all corners of our campus. From financial aid to our academic enterprise to our building projects, we have an unprecedented opportunity to propel Andover forward—and to leave our own legacy.

Knowledge & Goodness is a bold declaration. Together we will make it a reality.
