Studying on Other Continents

China-photo-082015

Avenues promises its students the skills, experiential opportunities and exposure to cultures and values that will make them not only attractive college applicants but more importantly, productive and successful global citizens.Among the most distinguishing features of Avenues is the concept of one school with 20 or more campuses in major cities around the world. Once realized, this system will allow fluid exchanges between campuses of students and teachers, as well as a full range of interactive collaborations.

Starting in the middle grades, Avenues offers, but does not require, multiple overseas learning opportunities with initial focus on China, Latin America and Spanish-speaking countries around the world. Of varying lengths, these programs will be highly integrated into Avenues’ World Course, with both preparation and post-experience review central to the experiences.

In addition to inspiring students to be “at ease beyond their borders,” Global Journeys programs are designed to connect with students’ learning. Rather than a standalone experience, each program requires strong preparation and post-journey work from its participants.

Since the opening of Avenues New York in 2012, students have taken school-sponsored trips to Costa Rica, Morocco, Spain, Ecuador and China. For more information, please see Global Journeys.

Pre-K Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month: Frida Kahlo Study

by Amelia Padilla, Pre-kindergarten Teacher


The Goldfish and Starfish embarked on a study of Frida Kahlo. They learned about her artistic life, where she was from and about her love for making self-portraits.
