Summary: Andover’s goal is to bring to campus talented students “from every quarter” who can enjoy the advantages of its size while at the same time feel adequately supported and part of the community. Our cluster system, house counselors, and student activities office are some of the resources that provide our students with support and activities that enrich their experience. Our residential education programs help students maintain a healthy lifestyle and address issues that concern young people today. We offer the Junior program, Personal and Community Education program (PACE) for Lowers and the All School Meeting as opportunities for student’s personal growth.
Additional support in student life comes from fellow students. One area where this support is demonstrated is in the residential community. Within each dormitory an upper class student applies for and is selected as a proctor or prefect. Proctors live in the upper class dormitories and prefects live in the junior dormitories. These students are crucial in the role of supportive advisor and counselor. They work closely with the adult house counselor to help ensure quiet time and lights out policies, discourage rule breaking and confront students who have difficulty following the rules, supervise the housekeeping program in their dorm, and discuss issues specific to the dorm with the house counselor. They are also available to assist students in navigating life at Andover whether academically, athletically or socially.
