Academics

Transformative learning for students in grades 6–12, anywhere in the world

Avenues Online is the online campus of Avenues: The World School, offering a comprehensive virtual school experience to students in grades 6–12. With a unique interdisciplinary curriculum, daily interaction with world-class faculty and the same proven college counseling provided to students at Avenues’ brick-and-mortar campuses, Avenues Online is setting a new standard for online education.

GREAT WORKS

Intensive reading + extensive making

Great Works is an interdisciplinary curriculum combining a series of carefully curated primary texts—literary, scientific, philosophical and more—with instruction in STEAM delivered as projects that bring big ideas to life. Students are challenged to apply the ideas they find in their weekly reading to real-world problems and projects—requiring research, experimentation, and making. The program’s title refers not only to the texts that students read, but also the great works that they produce.

MATH INQUIRY

Discussion- and problem-based math at a virtual round table

Based on the premise that learning mathematics is an active, participatory enterprise, the Math Inquiry program brings the discussion-based mathematics taught at our brick-and-mortar campuses online. The curriculum is based on materials created by Phillips Exeter Academy, adapted for our unique online interface to create authentic learning experiences in mathematics—wherever you are in the world.

GLOBAL PASSPORT

Broad-based competency in multiple world languages

The Global Passport curriculum focuses on task-based language learning and enables students to choose from over 50 languages of study—from Mandarin to Malay, from Spanish to Swahili, from Portuguese to Punjabi. Classes are conducted online in small groups or in private one-on-one sessions.

WRITING IMMERSION

Developing elegant writers and effective communicators

Because a solid grounding in writing mechanics and communication skills is crucial to students’ success in school and beyond, Avenues Online has developed an intensive multi-year Writing Immersion Program (WIP). The program breaks writing down into its discrete elements, allowing students to make steady progress towards clear, concise and compelling written communication.

HIGH INTENSITY PRACTICE

An innovative program to build essential thinking skills through persistent practice

Based on the idea that the best way to cultivate lifelong skills is to spend deliberate time practicing with expert guidance, Avenues developed the High Intensity Practice (HIP) program for students in the Secondary Division. In 20 minute bursts of creative and analytical freedom, students cultivate essential thinking skills—mental agility, empathy, creativity, and critical thinking— through persistent practice.

MIND & BODY

Live and interactive training and conditioning sessions

In partnership with LIFT Session, students develop their strength, endurance and flexibility in live interactive exercise sessions run by world-class fitness coaches. Sessions are 30-minutes and require no special exercise equipment. With choices such as yoga, high intensity interval training, cardio blast and metabolic conditioning, we nurture healthy bodies as well as healthy minds.

THE AVENUES GLOBAL COMMUNITY

Combine online and offline learning experiences at Avenues’ brick-and-mortar campuses

Avenues’ global admissions policy means that a student admitted to one Avenues campus is admitted to all. Avenues Online students can choose to spend time at Avenues’ brick-and-mortar campuses in New York and São Paulo, or switch back and forth between online and a brick-and-mortar campus to suit their schedule.
