Interdisciplinary Studies

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.

Math Inquiry

Avenues offers a rigorous, problem-based mathematics curriculum modeled on materials developed at Phillips Exeter Academy. Our discussion and problem-based approach to mathematics emphasizes collaboration and communication, encouraging students to take active ownership of their learning. Over time, students come to appreciate both the practical application of mathematical thinking and the beauty of mathematics as a source of reasoning. Students with exceptional talent may apply to our highly selective Institute for Advanced Mathematics.

Global Passport

Competency in world languages is a critical skill for future global leaders. In Global Passport, our task-based language curriculum, students accelerate their language acquisition through deep practice in real-world situations. Students can choose from Spanish and Chinese at multiple levels.

Belonging and Wellbeing

Students thrive in environments where they feel safe to be themselves and build deep connections within a caring community. Through the Deans’ Program, Mentorship, and Wellness and Movement (WAM), Avenues supports students to establish a healthy balance in their lives that will sustain them beyond their academics.

Working closely with faculty and acting as a point of contact for parents, deans ensure that students are fully supported and appropriately challenged at school. Deans design and lead the Mentorship program where students meet daily in small groups forming close relationships with peers and nurturing a sense of belonging.


Through Experience Lab (“X.Lab”), students pursue their passions through personalized learning experiences co-created with our exceptional faculty. X.Lab can take many forms and is designed to ensure deep learning, purpose, and personal relevance. Our Founding Class will have opportunities through X.Lab to co-construct elements of our new campus.


Co.Lab is experiential service learning that empowers students to connect, collaborate, and contribute to their school and the greater Silicon Valley community. Using a design thinking framework, students work in project teams to understand problems, design solutions, and build meaningful relationships that create lasting impact.

College Counseling

Once our Founding Class of 9th grade students move into grades 10-12, they will be assigned a dean who will serve as their college counselor. This ensures that students benefit from the guidance of someone who knows them well and fully appreciates their talents, accomplishments, goals, and aspirations. Deans provide personalized counseling on course selection, standardized testing, researching colleges and universities, and all other aspects of the college application and selection process.

Avenues graduates are attending more than 200 colleges and universities in the United States and around the globe. Learn more.
