Avenues is building a global network of campuses in major cities around the world, united by a common mission, shared curriculum and collective professional development. Consistent with this, Avenues campuses also share a set of global admission standards.
Avenues New York is a 15-grade independent school located in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood. Established in 2012, Avenues New York is the first campus in Avenues’ global network of schools. Providing an education centered on global preparedness, second language acquisition and interdisciplinary study, Avenues seeks to develop future world-wise leaders uniquely equipped to understand and solve global-scale problems.
Avenues São Paulo opened in August 2018 to students in nursery through 10th grade and will grow to serve students through 12th grade in the next two years. Avenues São Paulo combines a global curriculum with Brazilian curricular standards to provide an education that is global in scope and local in focus.
