So Henry is away at a boarding school four hours away called Hanover. Sounds suspiciously like my alma mater, Andover, which is north of Boston. "Dawson's Creek" wouldn't be the first show to call Andover Hanover. On "Party of Five," Claudia applied to and got into Andover, but the next season when she attended the show called it Hanover instead so they wouldn't have to worry about portraying a real school in a bad light.
