Avenues seeks to build a student body that reflects the diversity of each community it serves. As our mission states, we aim to be, “humble about [our] gifts and generous of spirit.” In addition to the work done by our students, staff and parents through Avenues community engagement initiatives, our financial assistance program is one more manifestation of that commitment. For the 2021-22 school year, Avenues provided nearly $15 million in aid to families who qualified for financial aid.
At Avenues New York, financial aid is typically available for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. We encourage you to consider Avenues even if you cannot afford the full cost of tuition, as financial aid may be available. Our team is committed to helping you navigate this process.
The primary responsibility for tuition rests with the family, and each family is expected to fully utilize its own resources before requesting financial aid. Avenues recognizes the uniqueness of each situation and tailors aid packages to meet the demonstrated needs of each qualified family.
As one school with many campuses, Avenues The World School provides transformative, world-focused learning experiences to students around the globe.
Instead of settling for best practices in education, Avenues is investing in better ones. Avenues’ in-house R&D department is dedicated to finding more effective ways to educate and equip students for a future that we cannot yet imagine.
Avenues’ innovative, rigorous curriculum continues to be shaped by expert faculty supported by our in-house research & development team. From Toddler–5th grade, students grow through language immersion in Chinese or Spanish, and from 6th–12th grade through a robust curriculum that includes signature programs such as Mastery, Avenues Institute for Advanced Mathematics, Avenues Humanities Center, High-Intensity Practice, Global Journeys and more.

We take healthy eating habits seriously, offering nutrient-rich, whole food menu choices that are low in added sugars, salt, fat and preservatives. We also aim to minimize ecological impact, choosing local, seasonal and organic options where feasible.
Many of the world’s greatest scientists, artists, athletes, and mathematicians got their starts early, following their curiosity and passion beyond the formal school day.

Whether through Wellness and Movement, our signature health and physical education program, or competitive team sports, Avenues students are supported to pursue excellence and develop the habits that lead to lifelong mental and physical health.
Wellness and Movement (WAM)
The program for nursery and pre-K uses dance and movement as a tool for physical and creative development. Classes focus on movement exploration, observation, self-awareness and expression while utilizing a joyful combination of dance choreography, drama, music, storytelling and improvisation. Kindergarten classes expand on this, progressing into the introduction of sports such as basketball, soccer and volleyball.
Spanning grades 1–10, Avenues Wellness and Movement (WAM) is a unique health and physical education experience rooted in positive psychology and dynamic play. WAM focuses on social-emotional wellbeing and physical literacy through a comprehensive movement-based curriculum.
Students in grades 9–10 also take elective classes at leading neighborhood fitness boutiques including Soul Cycle and Row House.
The Avenues athletics program provides opportunities for students to participate in athletic activities, have fun, experience the benefits of being physically active and enjoy being on a team or in a program. We welcome all types of student athletes: those excited to be starting out in their sport; those who want to be part of a team; and those who wish to take their athletic abilities to a higher level and master their sport.
Our Ethos: Beyond the court or pitch, athletics at Avenues develops important life skills and qualities like time management, leadership, goal-setting, commitment and dedication. The department is guided by the school’s values of Welcome, Safety and Respect, as well as our own four core values: character, commitment, culture and connection. Our staff strive to help student athletes reach their maximum potential, and then to be humble in victory and steadfast in defeat.
