Beyond the Classroom
Avenues Extended Learning provides dynamic learning experiences beyond the school day. We offer a range of programs, courses, workshops, leagues and camps to complement the Avenues experience and empower students to become architects of lives that transcend the ordinary.
Our online extended learning programs are open to all families, both at Avenues and beyond.
Life-changing experiences on multiple continents
Immersion in another culture, language and society is the most direct way to cultivate global citizens who are at ease beyond their borders. Avenues’ international programs are designed to push students beyond their comfort zones, empowering them to develop the skills and perspectives necessary to understand and solve global-scale problems. By making authentic and personal connections to other cultures, students expand not only their worldviews, but also their own definitions of themselves.
