Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusets is one of top co-educational boarding schools in the US. A great boarding high school known for academic excellence. Great location near Boston city. Phillips Academy recognizes that international students who are here for only one year may face unique transitional issues because of their relatively short tenure at the school. The Academy therefore provides some initial specialized courses in English and U.S. history in which language proficiency is less necessary. (See the introductory paragraphs of the English and History and Social Science sections on this web site.) However, all students at Phillips Academy, including international students, are expected to perform competently in the school’s basic curriculum. Andover's academic program offers a strong and broad foundation in the arts, humanities, mathematics, and natural sciences. Andover students can choose from more than 50 sport, dance, and exercise options at every level of instruction. In addition, each year Andover fields 65 interscholastic teams competing in 21 different sports. Athletic facilities include two ice rinks, an indoor swimming pool, a diving pool, basketball and squash courts, a weight and exercise room, dance studios, indoor and outdoor tracks, tennis courts, and football, soccer, softball, and baseball fields.
