Welcome to the newest campus of Avenues The World School, located in San Jose, California.
As the first step in our gradual expansion plan, in fall 2022 we launched our Founding Class Program. In fall 2023, the program will expand to include grades 4–10.
In 2024, we plan to expand our campus to serve 2-year-olds through grade 11 and in 2025 graduate our first class of 12th grade students.
Our Expansion Plan
Our Founding Class Program expands on our Avenues Quad at Mission College while our permanent site is under construction.
We welcome the earlier grades when we open on our new campus at 570 Meridian in San Jose
We graduate our first class of seniors
Our Founding Class Program offers a unique opportunity to a community of students in grades 4–10 to act as trailblazers and co-creators of our latest campus. Students focus on the theme of innovation, studying and developing solutions to both local- and global-scale problems with guidance from world-class faculty. Through project-based, interdisciplinary learning, they discover and develop their passions, engage in community partnerships, and help build the culture of their new school. At the same time, they develop the skills and qualities necessary to become architects of their own futures as well as the future of Avenues.
We offer a range of virtual and in-person events to help families better get to know Avenues. From the high-level overview offered at our Parent Introductory Event, to the on-campus opportunities to connect, each event presents a different perspective on life at Avenues.

The foundation of an Avenues education is Interdisciplinary Studies— a robust project-based course team-taught by two faculty members, one specializing in STEAM and the other in World (humanities and social sciences). Students complete interdisciplinary projects that integrate coursework in English, history, science, and art & design. Curated texts complement projects and provide frameworks for engaging critically with global topics, local issues and year-long themes.
A global curriculum for a world school
What do Avenues students learn? The Avenues World Elements table is our answer to that question. Designed by our research and development team, the Avenues World Elements is a global curricular system that defines the learning outcomes of Avenues students at all grade levels, at all our campuses.
