Exeter Summer students must arrive on campus Monday, July 1 between 8:00am and 6:00pm for registration. Students may depart campus on Thursday, August 1 after 12:00pm or Friday, August 2 by 2:00pm. We cannot accommodate students on campus prior to arrival on Monday, July 1 or after departure on Friday, August 2.

We provide shuttles from Boston Logan International (MA) airport, Manchester-Boston Regional (NH) airport and New York City.

Before the start of Exeter Summer, enrolled students will complete a set of forms to advise us on their method of transportation.

Please contact the Transportation Office at transportation@exeter.edu if you have questions concerning travel for your student.


We provide transportation to Exeter on Monday, July 1 from the following locations:

BOSTON LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (BOS), BOSTON, MA: Buses pick up from Logan Airport Terminal C. Students arriving at terminals other than “C” should take the free MASSPORT Shuttle Bus to Terminal C with their luggage. If you travel to Boston by train or bus, you must get yourself to Terminal C at Logan Airport by taking a taxi or public transportation (MBTA). When you arrive at Terminal C, go to the lower level and to the right of the Jet Blue luggage carousels (if facing the outside of the terminal). Students should stay inside, look for Door #110 and a Dunkin’ Donuts kiosk. The Exeter Summer Representatives will be near the end of this corridor in Terminal C close to the extra seating and rest room area.

Check-in with the Exeter Summer Representatives for the trip to Exeter.

MANCHESTER-BOSTON REGIONAL AIRPORT (MHT), MANCHESTER, NH: Students arriving at the Manchester Airport should gather their luggage and go to the far end of the terminal to the right of the Airport Information Counter and the Rental Car desks.

Unaccompanied Minors

Most airlines require younger children (15 and under) to be accompanied to the gate by an adult who must remain at the gate until the child boards and the aircraft departs the gate. For a fee, the airline will supervise the child for the duration of their journey and ensure that he/she is picked up by a designated guardian. Because each airline has different age and/or connections restrictions, it is the parent’s responsibility to make these arrangements directly with the airline.

Students who purchase an airline’s Unaccompanied Minor service and require our departure transportation service must also purchase Unaccompanied Minor service through Phillips Exeter Academy. Students will be charged an additional fee of $100/family to cover the costs associated with fulfilling the airline’s requirements for picking up or dropping off Unaccompanied Minors at the airport. Students who need the Exeter Unaccompanied Minor service for departure will purchase the service through the Student Activities office while the student is on campus, but before departure day, using their LionCard or credit card.

The Unaccompanied Minor service provided by Phillips Exeter Academy includes the following responsibilities:

  • Before departure from Exeter, the student will be given their chaperone’s contact information.
  • The chaperone will meet the student at the bus or at the airport.
  • The chaperone will assist the student with any documentation required by the airline’s unaccompanied minor travel policy.
  • In accordance with the airline’s policy; chaperones will escort the student to their departure gate and remain at the gate until the flight takes off. However, in some situations, the chaperone will have more than one student to escort. When that occurs, the chaperone will escort each student to their respective departure gate. The student will be told to remain at the gate. The chaperone will check-in periodically with each student and will be at their gate during the boarding process.
