Mission Statement for KCOA:
Korean Cultural Outreach at Andover is a non-profit organization and part of the Community Service Program at Phillips Academy.  Our mission is to educate adoptive families in their adopted child’s natural culture, and to create an awareness and appreciation of Korean Culture within our community at large through general instruction in language, arts, and participation in cultural events.  We encourage family participation.

Korean Cultural Outreach at Andover (KCOA) is designed for families of adopted Korean children from age three and up, and for local families who are interested in learning about Korean culture and language.  Siblings are welcome.  Classes are held on bi-weekly Sundays from 3:30 -5:00pm on the Phillips Academy Campus and will begin in September - exceptions will be noted.  Phillips Academy students of Korean heritage instruct families in Korean culture, language, and writing.  Through traditional stories, customs, ceremonies, and language, families gain a better understanding and grounding in this wonderful culture.  Instruction groups are based on age and language exposure, and an adult class is also available and will review what children are learning and explore cultural themes in depth. 

Registration Fees:
A registration fee of $100 will cover this year’s educational materials.  There is a $25 fee for each additional child to participate, with a cap of $150 per family.
Dinner at Paresky Commons dining hall is available to families for a flat rate of $100/family. This meal plancovers 13 sessions throughout the yearlong program.  There are a total of 15 meetings for each group, two of which are potluck dinners.

Families currently participating in ACCO/KCOA may pre-register by July 1st for the initial reduced price of $75 for the year, with a $25 fee for each additional child.
