Abacus Mom received this announcement from Avenues: The World School:

Avenues: The World School is Reinventing Education for a Fast-Changing World. 

The world has changed profoundly this year, and with it, the ways in which we educate our children. In this quickly-changing landscape, Avenues: The World School is uniquely positioned to serve students and families. Instead of settling for traditional best practices in education, Avenues is investing in better ones; their in-house R&D department is dedicated to finding more effective ways to educate and equip students for an uncertain future.

Avenues is one school with many campuses, providing transformative, world-focused learning experiences. Founded with the vision to form an intentionally connected community, Avenues has defined a new category of school—a world school. Their students are part of a community that has grown across multiple continents and an online campus, and their global admissions policy means that a student admitted to one campus is admitted to all. As the world changes, Avenues evolves with it, meeting its families wherever they are:

Avenues New York
Their first campus opened in 2012. Located in Chelsea, Avenues New York is an independent school serving toddler–12th grade students. Students from our first five graduating classes are studying at many of the finest educational institutions of the world, and are well on their way to becoming, in the words of our mission statement, “architects that transcend the ordinary.” They are currently offering virtual parent information events, which provide a vivid overview of the school and include a live Q&A with their leadership team. You can learn about their safe and successful campus reopening of campus here.

Avenues Online

Their virtual campus that serves toddler–grade 12 students has set a new standard for online education. Avenues Online offers daily interaction with world-class faculty, individualized and flexible scheduling options, expert college counseling support and access to Avenues’ global network of brick-and-mortar campuses across the globe.

While Avenues Online is a primarily virtual experience, the curriculum reflects an interdisciplinary, project-based approach to education, requiring students to turn off their computers and engage in authentic hands-on learning experiences. These experiences are further enriched by collaborations with faculty and a close-knit cohort that spans the globe. Learn more by visiting their website and getting in touch at admissions-on@avenues.org.


For toddler–5th grade students, Avenues@HOME, world-class online instruction is complemented by an Avenues teacher who comes to your home and works one-on-one with your child(ren). @HOME teachers are assigned exclusively to their families—i.e., one @HOME teacher per family—and trained in practices that minimize health risks.

Avenues Studio Hamptons

Avenues in the Hamptons is a studio campus providing a uniquely adaptive, learner-centered school experience by combining our transformative, web-based academic program with exceptional one-on-one mentoring, personalized learning experiences, local community engagement and individually customized schedules.

Regardless of where Avenues is, students have access to a truly integrated learning community that goes beyond what’s expected in order to develop the thought leaders and innovators of tomorrow. To learn more, please visit their website and don’t hesitate to reach out.
