Opening in fall 2021, our upper grades program harnesses the power of experiential, interdisciplinary and project-based learning to develop students who are curious, creative and uniquely equipped to meet the challenges of the future. The program provides a 100% English language environment, with all classes taught in English to prepare students for postsecondary education overseas. Highlights include:
Interdisciplinary, project-based learning across STEAM and humanities
Mentorship for the pursuit of passions and individual interests
World-class college counseling to prepare students for higher education overseas
Avenues’ signature interdisciplinary project-based learning experience, encompassing STEAM, humanities, and global studies
Great Works blends project-based pedagogy (inspired by programs at Stanford’s d.school and MIT) with a great books curriculum (in the spirit of core curricula at Columbia University and the University of Chicago) to provide transformative learning experiences in connection with the themes of discovery, innovation and foresight. In multi week units of study, students read thoughtfully paired texts—integrating the subjects of English, history, global studies, science, art, design, engineering and mathematics—while completing hands-on projects related to their reading. The result is a rare combination of academic depth and interdisciplinary breadth: great works both read and created.
The upper grades program at Avenues Shenzhen purposefully and thoughtfully blurs the lines between academic disciplines, while ensuring that students graduate with solid foundational skills and knowledge of relevant content areas. The program’s components include:
- Great Works: interdisciplinary STEAM and humanities
- Global Studies
- Problem-based and applied mathematics
- Mastery Program: personalized pursuits
- Expert college counseling
