Media and Photography Policy

Phillips Exeter Academy supports media, photography and other requests that directly connect to the educational mission of the school. Please keep in mind that:

  • Any media or photography requests, including interviews with Academy employees or students, should be directed to the director of communications for approval.
  • If approved, a media representative or photographer interested in visiting the campus should expect to be accompanied by a member of the Communications Office.
  • The Academy does not normally allow its facilities to be photographed for commercial use.

The Academy routinely captures photos and live or taped video of its students, employees and visitors to campus and uses these images on its website and social media channels and in the alumni magazine, fundraising materials, advertisements, and student publications. The Academy reserves the right to reproduce these images and files. By studying at, working at or visiting PEA, an individual acknowledges this right of the Academy.

The Academy does not release information about or pictures of its alumni, students or employees without permission, and has no liability for photographs used without permission.
