The Avenues Mastery Academy in Innovation and Making is pleased to offer a highly selective summer program where innovation-minded students from around the world share an intensive, month-long boarding experience while diving deep into all aspects of technology. Located in the global electronics hub of Shenzhen, the Academy is based on an academic apprentice-learning model in which participants live and work side-by-side with master teachers and hardware experts. The program is open to students in grades 9-12—both currently-enrolled Avenues students and those outside the community.

A select group of students currently in grades 9-12.
USD $7,000 (RMB 50,000) for all meals, lodging, technology supplies, in-country transportation, instruction, activities, and insurance. Cost should not be a barrier to attendance—financial assistance is available for qualified applicants.
If five or more students are departing from New York City, São Paulo, San Francisco, or another city, we will arrange a chaperone to accompany and guide the group. We strongly encourage students to travel this way, if possible. Otherwise, families can seek permission for independent travel. Flight cost with chaperone is approximately $1,000-$1,700. Exact dates and cost depend on location and flight availability, with up to two additional days before and one day after the program for travel.
