Selecting a school for your child is perhaps one of the most important decisions a parent can make. Identifying and understanding the key differences between schools is an essential part of that decision making experience. The best way to begin that process at Avenues is to simply walk through the door and take a first hand look at our “new school of thought.”

To reserve a space at one of our upcoming events, please click on the appropriate link below.

Introductory Events

Introductory events are held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Tailored toward parents, these events provide a vivid overview of our school, our mission and our vision.

Divisional Events

Divisional events are primarily held in the daytime and are intended for parents interested in learning more about a specific division. Divisional events for grades six through 12 are tailored toward both parents and students.

Parent Coffees

Parent coffees are held in the morning. These events allow parents to engage in discussions with divisional leaders in a smaller group setting.

Open House

The open house will be held on Saturday, October 29. The open house will allow families to meet Avenues teachers, students and parents and to experience classrooms throughout the school.

School Tours

Early Learning Center and Lower Division tours are available following the divisional events. Applicants will also receive a short tour at the time of the interview.

Upper Division tours are available to applicants and will occur at the time of the interview. Once an application has been submitted, families will receive instructions on scheduling their campus interview.

International Applications

While most of our international applicants are able to attend either one of these events, we do recognize that distance makes attending more challenging. If you are applying from overseas and are unable to attend one of our events, please contact the admissions team, who will be happy to provide personal assistance.
