Since 1967, A Better Chance of Andover has been closing the education gap for students of color in American society. We bring motivated students of color to live in Andover, where they attend Andover High School to better prepare for college. Thanks to your generosity, we provide our students with a house on Main Street and a complete network of support and love.
Our nonprofit program offers outstanding students from under-performing schools the opportunity to prepare for college at Andover High School, one of Massachusetts' top performing schools. The Andover community generously supports our goal of changing young lives, one person at a time.
