Avenues Online (AON) is the online campus of Avenues: The World School, supporting middle and upper school grades 6-12.

Wherever there is an Internet connection, there is AON.

Creating a New Kind of Campus

“We will graduate students who are accomplished in the academic skills one would expect; at ease beyond their borders… and, most importantly, architects of lives that transcend the ordinary.”

Avenues Mission Statement

Great Works

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.

Great Works: A Conversation

“We must change the way we educate our students if we are to prepare them for an unknowable future.”

Ty Tingley, AON Co-Head of School

Math Inquiry

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.

Math Unbounded

“I like that we don’t just focus on whether the final answer is right or wrong—we focus on understanding why.”

Victor, Grade 7, Avenues Online

Global Passport

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.”

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!
