Abbot Academy

Abbot Academy (also known as Abbot Female Seminary) was an independent boarding preparatory school for women boarding and day students in grades 9 to 12 from 1828 to 1973. Located in Andover, Massachusetts, Abbot Academy was notable as one of the first incorporated secondary schools for educating young women in New England. It merged with Phillips Academy in 1973, and its campus continues to be used by the combined school. The photograph collection documents Abbot Academy's athletics, buildings, and people (trustees, faculty, staff, students, and alumnae) as well as student life.
