PURPOSE OF PHILLIPS ACADEMY

'"Phi: purpose of Phillips Academy is to teach "the great end and real business of living." According to its Constitution, signed in 1778, "It is expected that the Master's attention to the disposition of the minds and morals of the youth under his charge will exceed every other care; well considering that, though goodness without knowledge (as it respects others) is both weak and feeble, yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous, and that both united form the noblest character and lay the surest foundation of use- fulness to mankind." Adapted to conditions of modern life, the aim of the Academy remains the same: so to intensify and broaden the capacities of its students that they may enter the larger world with trained minds and with a deepened sense of their responsibility to society.

Phillips Academy is dedicated to sound scholarship. It endeavors first of all to stimulate in its students curiosity about things of the mind, to induce in them a desire to educate themselves. It at- tempts to foster the development of discriminating judgment and independence of thought. It tries to cultivate the imagination and emotions of its boys.

By long tradition Andover believes in education that makes boys resourceful and independent. Andover believes in the value of student representation from all parts of the country and of the world, and from all walks of life. To its boys it offers an in- tellectual and moral discipline, as well as friendly encouragement and sympathy, the best incentives to accomplishment.

Phillips Academy is a liberal, modern school with an ancient tradition. It values the benefits passed on to it by many generations. It has contributed directly to the development of thousands of men, and indirectly to numberless aspects of our national life. Thankful for its history, Andover focuses on the present and on the future. In training American boys for service and leadership it seeks to preserve a flexible spirit that will test and try the new while treasuring the riches of the past.

HISTORICAL SKETCH

T)hillips academy is situated at Andover, in the County of Essex, Massachusetts. The Constitution and original deed of gift of the Academy was signed April 21, 1778, by Esquire Samuel Phillips, of the north parish of Andover, and his brother, John Phil- lips, LL.D., of Exeter, New Hampshire, in the presence, and largely at the instance, of Samuel Phillips, Jr. (then but twenty-six years old), afterward judge of the Court of Common Pleas for Essex County, president of the Massachusetts Senate, and lieutenant governor of the Commonwealth. By this act the Trustees of Phillips Academy became owners of the land in the south parish of Andover on which the chief buildings of the school now stand, together with other endowment comprising further lands and the sum of one thousand six hundred and fourteen pounds. Two years later, on October 4, 1780, the school was incorporated by the Act of Incorporation passed by the General Court of Massachu- setts, signed by John Hancock.

The Constitution was written by Samuel Phillips, Jr., with the advice and aid of his friend, Eliphalet Pearson, who became first Master. The following passages are characteristic:

A serious consideration of the premises, and an observation of the growing neglect of youth, have excited in us a painful anxiety for the event, and determined us to make, in the follow- ing Conveyance, a humble dedication to our Heavenly Benefac- tor of the ability, wherewith he hath blessed us, to lay the foundation of a public free School or Academy for the purpose of instructing Youth, not only in English and Latin Grammar, Writing, Arithmetic, and those Sciences, wherein they are commonly taught, but more especially to learn them the great end and real business of living.

The Master is to give special attention to the health of the scholars, and ever to urge the importance of a habit of industry.

But above all, it is expected that the Master's attention to the disposition of the minds and morals of the youth under his charge will exceed every other care; well considering that, though good- ness without knowledge (as it respects others) is weak and feeble, yet knowledge without goodness is dangerous, and that both united form the noblest character, and lay the surest foun- dation of usefulness to mankind.

HISTORICAL SKETCH

This Seminary shall be ever equally open to youth of requisite qualifications from every quarter.

And, in order to prevent the smallest perversion of true intent of this Foundation, it is again declared, that the first and princi- pal object of this Institution is the promotion of true Piety and Virtue; the second, instruction in the English, Latin, and Greek languages, together with Writing, Arithmetic, Music, and the Art of Speaking; the third, practical Geometry, Logic, and Geography; and the fourth, such other of the Liberal Arts and Sciences or Languages as opportunity and ability may hereafter admit, and as the Trustees shall direct.

Phillips Academy was opened for instruction April 30, 1778, in a building which had earlier been used as a carpenter's shop. The first preceptor was Eliphalet Pearson (1778-1786), a stimu- lating teacher and stern disciplinarian, who established high stan- dards of instruction. Shortly before he resigned to become professor at Harvard College, a new and larger schoolhouse was built. On November 5, 1789, George Washington, President of the United States, visited Andover and addressed the students assembled on the Old Training Field.

The fourth principal, John Adams, raised the repute of the school, increased the attendance, and enlarged the number of teachers. During his term as principal, the second schoolhouse was burned, on January 28, 1818, and a new brick Academy designed by the famous architect Charles Bulfinch was erected within a year. This "classic hall," described in Oliver Wendell Holmes's centennial poem, "The School-Boy," is still in use.

The modern period of the school's history commenced in 1873 with the election of Cecil F. P. Bancroft, a man of foresight and clear vision, patience and shrewd discrimination, who was prin- cipal until his death in 1901. Under Dr. Bancroft's administra- tion, attendance increased from 262 to over 400 pupils and since then has never dropped below that figure.

Dr. Bancroft was succeeded in 1902 by Alfred E. Stearns. The purchase in 1908 of the lands and buildings of the Andover Theo- logical Seminary greatly increased the resources of the Academy and made possible new development. In the late 1920's and in the 1930's the school took its present form under a building and landscaping program made possible by the generosity of Thomas Cochran, other alumni, and friends of the school.

PHILLIPS ACADEMY

Under the administration of Claude M. Fuess, Headmaster from 1933 to 1948, the faculty was greatly enlarged and strengthened, the curriculum was revised, a number of buildings were added, and the Andover Summer Session (1942) and the Andover Eve- ning Study Program (1935) began. In World War II, Andover men served in each of the services, and 143 gave their lives. Dur- ing much of the war, Henry L. Stimson served as president of the Trustees as well as Secretary of War.

John M. Kemper was elected Headmaster in 1948. Since then, substantial advances have been made in three areas: curriculum, admissions policy, and the physical plant and resources.

The curriculum has been revised to provide increased flexibility. In 1952-195 3, under Andover leadership and with a grant from the Ford Foundation, the important study, General Education in School and College, was completed. It has resulted in the introduc- tion into the Andover curriculum of new, advanced, college-level courses. In 195 5, in response to the national teacher shortage, the school inaugurated the Andover Teaching Fellow Program to re- cruit and train young men for teaching.

Concerning admissions, the decision was made in the late fifties to admit each year the best 250 candidates regardless of their ability to pay tuition. The effect of this decision has been to broaden still further the school's basic policy, in the words of its Consti- tution, "to be ever equally open to youth of requisite qualifications from every quarter."

In the third area, physical plant and resources, several changes are notable. The endowment has grown from eleven to twenty- eight million dollars. Meantime the enrollment has increased from 725 to 858.

During the years 1959-61 The Andover Program, a major capital gift drive carried out by alumni and parents, succeeded in raising $6,750,000 for new facilities. With these funds the Academy has built four new dormitories, two new faculty houses, a new science building, an Arts and Communications Center with extensive audio-visual equipment and studio space, an enlargement of the auditorium stage and an experimental drama lab, a wing on the Library, several new athletic fields, a roof for the hockey rink, and other athletic facilities; existing buildings have been remodeled for more classrooms and for sudent and faculty housing.

GENERAL INFORMATION

A ndover students, for the most part, live together by classes in the Academy dormitories and houses. Each building is under the supervision of the resident faculty housemaster. All boys eat in their own class dining rooms in the Commons.

Juniors live in Williams Hall and Rockwell House, or in neigh- boring houses and cottages. Williams Hall, with its annexes, Junior House and Stott Cottage, has rooms and recreation facilities for fifty-six Juniors, who occupy single or double rooms. Rockwell House has single rooms and recreation facilities for forty Juniors. Juniors are subject to the special regulations and the particularly close supervision found helpful to boys of this age in making a successful transition from home to boarding school life. Carefully selected Senior proctors play an important part in the activities of the various Junior units.

Lower Middlers live in three of the double-entry brick dormi- tories and in a number of smaller houses and cottages, where they receive careful guidance but also enjoy a degree of independence suited to their increased maturity. Senior proctors are in residence in most of the Lower Middle units.

Upper Middlers and Seniors, having learned to profit from rela- tively great independence and freedom, are housed, with a few exceptions, in large brick dormitories by classes, where they are permitted considerable latitude in the exercise of their daily affairs. In the four newest dormitories, the resident groups are made up of an approximately equal number of Upper Middlers and Seniors, who live in the same dormitory for their last two years.

FACULTY COUNSELORS (housemasters)

Each Andover student is under the direct charge of a Faculty Counselor, who, for boarding students, is his housemaster. He knows the background, the character, and the standing of each of his boys and acts as his advisor in all that concerns his welfare and his happiness. The Counselor is usually the member of the Faculty most intimately in touch with the student and his parents. From time to time, he will write the parents to keep them informed of

their son's progress. Parents should feel free to write their son's counselor if they have any reason for concern about their boy's progress. They are encouraged to report to the counselor any facts that may affect the boy's work or behavior.

RELIGION

Phillips Academy is an inter-denominational school whose ori- gin and traditions rest firmly upon a Christian faith and system of values.

Chapel services are an essential part of the Phillips Academy program and are conducted by the Headmaster, the School Minis- ters, students, and members of the faculty. Among the visiting speakers are leaders of many denominations. A number of college chaplains are invited to speak each year.

Attendance at chapel services is required, although on Sundays boys may choose to attend services at other Protestant or Roman Catholic churches in Andover. Students of Jewish faith may attend services in the Sylvia Pratt Kemper Chapel. Mass for Roman Catho- lic students is celebrated in this small Chapel each Sunday at 8:15.

This arrangement emphasizes two sets of values: a close con- nection of each boy with his own denomination, and a program of worship within the life of the school built upon the common elements of our religious heritage.

In a school composed of students from diverse backgrounds, it is not possible fully to satisfy all the special requirements of dif- ferent sects and denominations. Therefore no boy should apply for admission to the Academy who feels that the ritualistic practices of his own faith must be literally followed in all circumstances.

In daily chapel the effort is to develop a service that strengthens the best aspirations and insights of students, while denying to no one the right to hold fast his own faith. The school tries to develop devotion to God and reliance upon faith as a source of inspiration and strength, to confirm a boy's support of the highest values that our civilization has nurtured, and to increase his respect for and understanding of the beliefs of others.

Those who have minority religious status as well as those who have majority status are expected to work with equal eagerness toward the goals by means of which Phillips Academy endeavors to achieve harmony and unity in diversity.

CULTURAL OPPORTUNITIES Andover has always demanded a high standard of accomplish- ment in the prescribed course of study. At the same time, the school believes that a boy's interest should be widened as far as possible beyond the subjects of the curriculum. Through the Oliver Wendell Holmes Library, the Robert S. Peabody Foundation for Archaeology, the Addison Gallery of American Art, the Depart- ment of Music, and
