Jim Ventre ’79, Dean of Admission & Financial Aid, is on the road again! Today he is in Istanbul, Turkey, meeting with prospective families in an effort to recruit youth from every quarter.
At the same time, back on campus our current students are finishing their final assessments for the fall trimester at Andover. They go home this weekend for Thanksgiving break, a well-deserved week-and-a-half off from classes to spend time with their families and rest. Then when they come back, they’ll start their winter term classes and also submit applications for the Tang Institute’sLearning in the World summer programs! In 2015-2016, Andover faculty and staff will be leading Learning in the World programs to China, Brazil, France, Germany,Russia, New Mexico , India (Niswarth and Niswarth Hoops), Italy and Spain, Ecuador, Mexico, South Africa, and the American South.
The world comes to Andover to learn, and Andover travels the world to learn as well!

One of the things we love about traveling around the world in search of youth from every quarter is the opportunity to catch up with our alumni, who are spread out across the globe themselves. In particular we like to thank our awesome group of Alumni Admission Representatives, who conduct interviews in their home states/countries (and sometimes over Skype!) for students who are unable to visit the Andover campus.
