In addition to traditional academic subjects such as mathematics, foreign languages, science and humanities, Avenues places emphasis on other areas of student development as well—especially the arts and athletics, which are incorporated into every schedule.
For younger children, extended day programs are available in a variety of options. Students can participate in a variety of programs, both before and after school. Some programs are provided as a free service for Avenues parents, while others are offered for a fee.
College counseling is available for older students to help place them in the colleges, universities or other higher-education institutions that are the best fit for their interests.
