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.
These evening events are designed to provide an overview of the mission, pedagogy and educational philosophy behind an Avenues education. Hear from school leaders, current parents, faculty and students about why they have chosen to make Avenues “their school.” These events are for parents of prospective students to all grades.
Organized by division (Early Learning Center, Lower and Upper Division) and offered both during the day and at night, these highly interactive information sessions will provide a detailed overview of the curriculum and day-to-day experience of our students and faculty. Prospective parents will have the opportunity to meet with the division heads, heads of grade, faculty, current parents and admissions counselors.
Early Learning Center and Lower Division tours are available following the Divisional Information Sessions.
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.
While most of our international applicants are able to attend either a Parent Information Event or a Divisional Information Session, we do recognize that distance makes attending these events 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.

August 10, 2016 - History students at Avenues grapple with a daunting set of questions every day upon arriving to class: how do we make sense of the past, and how does studying the past help us better understand our own times? How do historians and history students generate knowledge and narrative? More...
