About Avenues

Begin by thinking of Avenues New York, Avenues São Paulo, Avenues Shenzhen, Avenues Silicon Valley, Avenues Online, Avenues London. Avenues: The World School

is one school with many campuses, providing transformative, world-focused learning experiences to students around the globe. Avenues prepares students for engaged global citizenship during a time of unprecedented complexity and accelerating change, combining language immersion, interdisciplinary learning, a global curriculum, and a culture of creativity and deep collaboration. 

Avenues New York

Avenues New York opened in 2012. In just under a decade, we’ve become one of the most regarded and sought out private schools in a market with remarkable options and now serve nearly 1,800 students across 16 grades from Toddler-Grade 12. Since our founding, our Early Learning Center has offered a biliterate immersion program. The immersion program continues in our Lower Division. In 2016, Avenues launched Small World, our toddler program. In just 5 years, it’s become the leading pre-immersion toddler program in the city.

The Opportunity

This role ensures that our campus opens each year fully enrolled with students and families who are a great match for Avenues, are invested in the vision of an Avenues education, and bring diverse perspectives that enrich our community.

  • Build and maintain strong external relationships  with feeder schools, community organizations, educational consultants and other potential sources of right-fit students and families
  • Identify “right-fit” students and families through careful, holistic review
  • Make every family feel cared for and respected,  regardless of admissions outcome
  • Immerse yourself within the Avenues community  developing very positive relationships with key stakeholders (current students, parents, and faculty) to support both admissions of new students and ongoing enrollment of current families.

What You Bring
