Founded in 1807, Andover Newton is America's oldest graduate school of theology. It created the model used by almost all seminaries to today.
Few schools of any kind have had as much influence on American culture and values as Andover Newton. Our graduates have founded churches, schools, seminaries, and colleges, transformed American education, fought on the front lines of Abolition and Civil Rights, served as presidents of Brown and Dartmouth and many other colleges, and created links between people of many backgrounds and faith.
Our outstanding faculty and innovative educational program have created a unique and challenging learning community, a community which continues to innovate and to interweave theological studies with practical preparation for working in the 21st century.
