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.
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.
