Admissions welcome

Ham_700-crop-dark-bkgd3Welcome to Avenues: The World School!

We are a vibrant global community in the heart of Manhattan. Our nearly 1,500 students and families represent more than 40 countries and speak countless languages. And starting with our youngest learners in the nursery program, every student at Avenues is immersed in a second language. As a New School of Thought, we bring together the best of tradition and progressivism. In its first four years, Avenues has accomplished so much, sending off its first graduating class this year to the top colleges in the country.

Avenues is young, exciting and dynamic, and I can’t wait for you to get to know us. As a global educator, I was attracted to this community by its progressive thinking, commitment to research-based proven practices in education and incredible entrepreneurial spirit. After working in education my whole career, it is energizing to be part of something new, thoughtful, strategic and forward thinking. Impressive teachers, curious and eager children and strong parent partners are what lead to the tremendous success of our students. Most importantly, private schools have a public purpose. Our success and that of our students is measured by our commitment to make a difference in the communities in which we live and serve.

Please, take the time to read our mission, as I know it will speak to you as it spoke to me, and please, join me at one of our upcoming events for prospective parents. In the meantime, our dedicated admissions team stands ready to be of any assistance and may be contacted at admissionsnyc@avenues.org or 646.664.0800.

From all of us at Avenues, we appreciate your interest and wish the very best to your family during your school search.
