Perhaps nothing distinguishes Avenues more than our mission of graduating students who are “at ease beyond their borders” and “proficient in a second language.” With the launch of its second campus, Avenues is extending its mission and vision to the southern hemisphere, and is proud to announce a selective global program for São Paulo’s first 10th grade students.
Avenues: The World School will admit a select group of rising 10th grade students to attend Os Primeiros: The Avenues 10th Grade São Paulo + New York Semester.
Following an academically enriching and innovative curriculum developed in conjunction with Avenues New York, students will be engaged and prepared to be leaders of the Avenues São Paulo campus upon its opening in August 2018.
The five-month semester will run from February to June 2018. The first four months will be sited in São Paulo, and the final session will be hosted at the Avenues New York campus. Students will develop strong language skills, confidence through projects and practice, meaningful cross-cultural exchange and experience firsthand what it means to be global citizens.
The Civi-Co headquarters in São Paulo will be a space for innovation by civic social entrepreneurs who will drive positive change in Brazilian public and government spheres. Civi-co is building a community of changemakers with a purpose: to encourage civic participation, social engagement, transparency and to promote the common good. The Civi-Co vision is to expand the network to a global scale, with similar hubs being created in several countries.
