A Future Beyond Avenues

The uniquely global scope of Avenues’ curriculum provides students with the educational and extracurricular opportunities that make for competitive and compelling college applications. To that end, we offer highly individualized college counseling in tandem with our deans program. Over the course of multiple years, deans build strong relationships with each of their advisees, making them uniquely qualified to support students in navigating the college application process. They counsel students on how to make strong academic and extracurricular choices that reflect Avenues’ values and help identify institutions that best fit their advisees’ academic interests and priorities.

To prepare students for the college admission process, we focus on the pillars of our program: striving for academic excellence; identifying and pursuing academic and extracurricular passions; engaging in the local community—as well as in communities abroad—in ways that bring about social good; and gaining proficiency in more than one language. Every student completes a portfolio of writing, artwork, design projects, social innovation pursuits, internships, and international experiences that will distinguish them in the application pools of selective colleges and universities.
