The upper grades curriculum is defined by breadth as well as depth. We provide students with a foundation in science, math and the humanities; a range of electives that offer deep dives into topics of global relevance and technical complexity; and a host of special programs, developed right here at Avenues that set our graduates apart. We emphasize:
The identification and pursuit of one’s passions through Mastery and more
Discussion-based learning in the humanities and math
Highly individualized college counseling to identify the best path for each student—whether in Brazil or overseas
Opening the door to the best universities in Brazil and overseas
Avenues São Paulo has a dual-diploma program. All students graduate with an American diploma accredited by one of the leading accrediting agencies in the United States. In addition, Brazilian nationals complete the required Brazilian national curriculum and graduate with both the American and the Brazilian diplomas. International students with sufficient Portuguese fluency may also complete the Brazilian national curriculum and graduate with both diplomas.
An Integrated Brazilian Program
Avenues is building a global network of interconnected campuses with shared educational objectives and common pedagogical approaches. But while our vision is ambitiously global, our focus is decidedly local. That means that at Avenues São Paulo, we take Brazilian educational standards as seriously as we do international ones.
By taking an integrated curricular approach to instruction in Portuguese and English, our students attain a balanced mastery of both languages and reap the extensive cognitive benefits of bilingualism. All of the Brazilian national curricular components of Portuguese are included in our language curriculum at each grade level. We do not see English and Portuguese as belonging to separate silos, but as two important facets of an Avenues education.
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.
