Schools are historically rooted in the villages, towns and cities in which they are situated. Almost all are single-city, single-country institutions. They teach about matters beyond their boundaries, but they do not operate in any meaningful way outside them. Over time, some have evolved to serve national communities, teaching about the larger world and including students from diverse locations but their operations still largely exist in one country and on a single campus.
Avenues: The World School has taken the next step, transcending boundaries with a mission to graduate true global citizens who, in addition to being educated in the history and culture of their home countries, will be at ease beyond their borders. To accomplish that, our vision is to build one school with many campuses around the world. Already, Avenues New York and Avenues São Paulo (Brazil) are among the leading schools in their respective countries. We are actively developing additional campuses in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Avenues Online (AON) goes further yet, spanning the globe as a learning institution with a reach as broad as the Internet. AON is the flexible solution for high performing, curious students in grades 6–12 looking to participate in Avenues’ academically innovative, college preparatory program of study. AON provides unique opportunities to connect with student peers from other cultures and countries; experience an academically rigorous, interdisciplinary, project-based approach to learning; and study a variety of languages. The proprietary platform and curriculum are a singular feature of AON, developed by our in-house research and development team.
AON is led by a growing, world-class team of passionate and experienced educators. We’re thrilled to introduce them, below.
