Our Campuses Overview

No matter where they are located, all Avenues campuses share a set of distinctive core features and design standards. Whether in New York, Sao Paulo or any of the other world cities into which Avenues plans to expand, our campuses are instantly recognizable for their collaborative common areas, technological sophistication and abundance of natural light, among other features. Based at our New York headquarters, our design team combines the latest thinking from the fields of technology, adaptable and sustainable design, and ergonomics with the experience of top educators and school administrators from around the world.

All Avenues campuses share the following features or qualities:

SUPERBLY LOCATED

Whether a bustling city center or a leafy neighborhood, we select locations that provide a safe environment conducive to study, convenience for drop-off and pick-up or student transport, and rich resources for study and engagement beyond the campus walls.

SAFE & SECURE

From secure drop-off areas for our youngest students to well-staffed security teams at the front desk, we prioritize the safety and security of our school community in the design of every Avenues campus.

NATURAL LIGHT

We go out of our way to ensure that our classrooms and common spaces enjoy an abundance of natural light. Multi-floor atriums and open stairwells allow light to travel, generating strong connections between the interior and exterior of the building and creating a feeling of expansiveness.

THOUGHTFULLY & TASTEFULLY FURNISHED

Our campuses are beautiful as well as functional. Applying a consistent color palette and our distinctive style, we ensure that Avenues campuses are instantly recognizable as such, wherever they are in the world.

CONDUCIVE TO COLLABORATION & INDEPENDENT STUDY

All our campuses feature common areas and open studios that support collaborative project work and independent study. Signature spaces include iLabs, STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) studios and classrooms for discussion-based learning.

SPACE TO PLAY

Physical play, team sports, and fitness are important aspects of student life at Avenues. We strive to maximize outdoor space in urban environments and provide access to off-site facilities where appropriate. On-campus facilities include full-size indoor gymnasiums; outdoor and rooftop play areas; sports courts; and multi-purpose patios.

GREEN

By opting for sustainable materials and abiding by high standards of green design, we model environmental stewardship for our students, honoring our mission statement, which pledges to graduate students who are “aware that their behavior makes a difference in our ecosystem.”

CONNECTED BY TECHNOLOGY

Our campuses are connected by technology, enabling students and faculty on different continents to collaborate in exciting new ways. With robust Wi-Fi supporting our classrooms in the cloud and technology integrated into every classroom, Avenues campuses reflect the world in which students will live and work in the future.
