Born in Antwerp (in the Seventeen Provinces of the Low Countries) he studied at the Collegium Trilingue of Louvain, where he was a pupil of the Latinist Cornelius Valerius,[1] Douai and Paris; and taught in Zaragoza and Toledo.

After entering the Society of Jesus in 1586 he taught Greek in Rome and Antwerp. He corresponded with Ortelius, Isaac Casaubon, and Hugo Grotius.[2] André Schott died in Antwerp in 1629.
