A very warm welcome from the admissions office of Avenues São Paulo! We thank you for your interest and invite you to learn more about our planned campus, which will open in the Cidade Jardim in August 2018. In its first year, the school will operate nursery to 10th grade. Eleventh and 12th grade will be added in the following years.
In my work as director of admissions, I will be focused on creating and nurturing partnerships with each and every family who applies to Avenues São Paulo. By far and away the most important—and rewarding—aspect of my work is guiding families through the admissions process, holding their hands every step of the way and getting to know parents and students on an individual basis. This has been true throughout my more than fifteen years in education and will be even more pronounced in my work to welcome families to Avenues’ brand new campus in São Paulo. My team and I could not be more excited about the opportunity to build a culture and community from the ground up. That effort begins and ends with strong relationships with families, which I hope will endure even beyond every student’s graduation.
As you consider Avenues, I encourage you to learn more about our early admissions program. Through early admissions, families who know that Avenues is their first-choice school can obtain a guaranteed place for their child before the start of our regular admissions process. This will be a valuable resource for families who are already anticipating our 2018 opening. Recognizing that for many parents, securing a place for their child at their school of choice represents a huge weight off the mind, we are thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity.
I hope that you find the information presented here useful as you consider Avenues São Paulo for your family. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions—or even just to say “hi”—via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. My team and I are looking forward to meeting you and welcoming you to the Avenues: The World School family.
