A Path to the Future

BLDG_C4SN-HARDY-DSC_1106-LThe Campus Master Plan, “A Path to the Future,” lays out a vision to support Andover’s 21st-century living and learning experience. As the first Campus Master Plan since 1996, it honors the history of the school by affirming the landscape and organizational concepts introduced nearly 100 years ago by the Olmsted brothers and Charles Platt’s “Ideal Andover” vision and realized by Thomas Cochran III. At the same time, it draws upon the priorities of the Strategic Plan and its larger theme of Connecting Our Strengths. Highlighting opportunities for individual projects and also for continual improvement, the Campus Master Plan ensures the campus will support the academy’s mission over both the short and long-terms.

Guided by the firm Beyer Blinder Belle, Andover pursued a full-year process of discovery and conversations that included energetic engagement with students, staff, and faculty as the community imagined how the campus will evolve to meet future needs.
