ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
Avenues Online (AON) is the online campus of Avenues: The World School, supporting middle and upper school grades 6-12. With physical campuses in New York, São Paulo, Shenzhen, and other campuses under development in key cities around the world, Avenues Online is the Avenues everywhere solution. Wherever there is an Internet connection, there is AON.
“There are no passengers on spaceship earth. We are all crew.”
Intensive Reading + Extensive Making
Blending a great books curriculum with project-based pedagogy, AON offers a unique learning experience centered on primary texts that evoke real-world debates. Our students sharpen critical thinking and critical doing skills by putting complex ideas not only into dialogue but also into action—great works are both studied and created by our students.
“We travel together, passengers on a little spaceship, dependent on its vulnerable reserves of air and soil; all committed for our safety to its security and peace; preserved from annihilation only by the care, the work, and, I will say, the love we give our fragile craft.”
Deep Discussions, Authentic Collaborations
The AON Math Inquiry Program is based on the premise that learning mathematics is an active, participatory enterprise. Curiosity-piquing problems and peer insights engage student imaginations and cultivate computational thinking. Our curriculum is based on materials created by Phillips Exeter Academy, with original exercises scaffolded to create authentic learning experiences in mathematics uniquely designed for our online platform.
“Like a grand and miraculous spaceship, our planet has sailed through the universe of time, and for a brief moment, we have been among its many passengers… We now have the ability and the responsibility to build new bridges of acceptance and co-operation between us, to create a better world for ourselves and our children as we continue our amazing journey aboard Spaceship Earth.”

Real Conversations, 50+ Languages
Studying other languages doesn’t just provide social and personal benefits. It’s also beneficial to the development of brain functions and cognitive skills. The Global Passport curriculum focuses on task-based language learning and enables our students to choose from over 50 languages of study—from Mandarin to Malay, from Spanish to Swahili, from Portuguese to Punjabi.
“I live my life in widening circles
That reach out across the world.”

Mind and Body
Play Together, Stay Together
In partnership with LIFT Session, AON students develop their strength, endurance, and flexibility in live interactive exercise sessions run by world-class fitness coaches. Sessions are 30-minutes and require no special exercise equipment. Yoga. HIIT Tabata. Cardio blast. Metcon. And more. Students get in the best shape of their lives. And because the family that plays together stays together, families and faculty are free to join in the workouts!
“Perhaps the most poignant image of our time is that of Earth as seen by the space voyagers: a blue sphere, shimmering with life and light, alone and unique in the cosmos. From this perspective, the maps of geopolitics vanish, and the underlying interconnectedness of all the components of this extraordinary living system—animal, plant, water, land, and atmosphere—becomes strikingly evident.”
Preparing for the Journey Ahead
Graduates of Avenues Online receive a high school diploma from Avenues: The World School. Our graduates are attending leading colleges and universities, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Columbia, Williams, Pomona, the University of Chicago, Penn, Virginia, McGill, and the University of Edinburgh.
