Beyond the classroom

Extending the school day with play, study and exploration

Discovery and learning don’t stop at 3:00 pm. Avenues New York offers a host of optional programs that take students out of the classroom and into the world, whether after school or over the summer.

Our summer programs, offered through Summer@Avenues, are open to students not currently enrolled at Avenues.

After School

Round out the school day with activities, leagues or private music lessons

Activities

Find a new passion or nurture a preexisting one—from cookery to robotics, parkour to chess

We are proud to offer currently enrolled students a host of after school activities, including PlayLab, StudyLab, and specialty classes in robotics, chess, cooking, theater, kung fu, parkour and fencing--to name a few. Classes run 3:00-6:00 pm daily.

Yearlong deep dives into exciting pursuitswith a competitive edge

Leagues offer a chance for students to spend a year developing their skills in a particular activity while collaborating and competing with peers. Students will represent Avenues in tournaments and workshares within the five boroughs of New York City and beyond. In 2018-19, we offered four league options: Chess, Card Club, First Lego League and the Student Stock Market.
