Phillips Exeter Academy encourages visits from prospective students and their families, as well as current families and other friends. See the directions on how to get here...

You'll find our classic New England town easy to get around: it's an engaging combination of walkable streets, small stores, and 18th century buildings. The 617-acre campus, with its impressive facilities, is right in the middle of town. Check campus map...

If you're applying to Exeter, be sure to let us know when you're coming—we'd like to meet with you. If by chance you can't make it to campus, please arrange for an off-campus interview.
