After receiving a
BA in history from Denison University and a Diploma in African Studies from the
University of Cape Town, Andrew began his career as a four-year history
teacher at The Marvelwood School.
He transitioned to a job at The Taft School, his alma mater, and during
his eight years at Taft, Andrew worked in admissions, taught history, coached
soccer, squash, and lacrosse, lived in the dorm, and served as an advisor.
In 2005, Andrew was drawn to Berkshire because of the
leadership of the school, the spectacular location, the rich institutional
history, the incredible academic and co-curricular opportunities, and the
students he met. There is a unique
energy surrounding the exciting programmatic offerings on campus and Andrew
loves finding students who will support and enhance these endeavors. He also enjoys traveling to new and
developing states and countries to enhance the global community at Berkshire.
In addition to Andrew’s role in the Admission Office, he is
the head girls’ tennis coach and also an advisor. Andrew lives on campus with his wife, Kelley, and their two
sons, Burke and Drew. Kelley is an
English teacher, Fourth Form Dean, coach, and sought-after advisor. The Bogarduses love spending time
hiking, swimming, reading, and relaxing at their house in Vermont. When he is not working on his graduate
degree, Andrew may also be spotted at the golf links from time to time.
