Your child’s education is among the most important investments your family will ever make. It is an investment in your child’s ability to become at ease beyond their borders; to become great leaders when they can be, good followers when they should be; to be humble about their gifts and generous of spirit; to become architects of lives that transcend the ordinary. It is the investment that will most shape your child’s future.
Avenues: The World School is committed to providing one of the world’s best and most innovative educational experiences for your family, including a unique and powerful academic program that emphasizes global preparedness, integration of the latest learning technology and state-of-the-art facilities. This is true of our New York campus and will be true of São Paulo and all future campuses.
Avenues’ annual tuition is comprehensive and inclusive of all fees and taxes. It fully covers materials, books, technology, library services, security, class field trips, food service and transportation costs for most school activities.
Other than optional supplementary costs such as personal café charges, after-school enrichment programs, summer camp, study abroad and transportation to and from school, Avenues does not assess additional fees or seek contributions for athletics, building funds, capital funds, scholarships, etc. We also do not charge enrollment or entrance fees to incentivize staying. We want our families to stay, but only if they want to stay.
As one school with many campuses in leading global cities, Avenues’ tuition is structured similarly at each campus. Tuition at Avenues is the same for all grades, as our resources and overarching commitment to the total student experience are comparable across all grades. For 2018-19, tuition for Avenues São Paulo is R$124,300. This includes the technology and services fee. Tuition is paid with an initial deposit of R$16,500, and the remaining amount divided into monthly installments up to February 2019.
Avenues seeks to build a student body that reflects the diversity of each community it serves. Students of all backgrounds will find that the Avenues environment embraces the tenets of mutual understanding and creativity as a method of promoting the highest levels of student achievement. As our mission states, we aim to be, “humble about [our] gifts and generous of spirit.” In addition to the work done by our students, staff and parents through Avenues community engagement initiatives, our financial assistance program is one more manifestation of that commitment.
We encourage you to consider Avenues even if you cannot afford the full cost of tuition, as there may be assistance available. Our team is committed to helping you navigate this process. To learn more about applying for financial assistance, please click here.
