The Admission Office
M.A.L.S., Skidmore College
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.
