Prep school discloses more sexual misconduct allegations

ANDOVER, Mass. (AP) — A prestigious Massachusetts boarding school says an investigation has found that two more former faculty members engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with students.

Phillips Academy in Andover’s head of school wrote in an email to the school community Monday that the alleged misconduct was found by an independent law firm hired by the school.

The school had previously identified five cases in the 1970s and 1980s in which former faculty members engaged in improper conduct with students.

Head of School John Palfrey says the latest investigation found that one male teacher allegedly had sexual intercourse with a female student during the 1970s. Another male faculty member allegedly “engaged in unwanted intimate touching” with a student during a school-sponsored activity.

The two former faculty members refused to participate in the investigation.
