Avon Old Farms School began hiring "progressive teachers who trained a student to 'seek knowledge and establish facts for himself'" in 1927 – a tradition that remains strong today.

Avon Old Farms has partnered with Jeffrey A. Asmar, LCSW to provide our students with a safe place for their emotional well-being. Jeff takes an ongoing interest in the developing the identity of young men. He assists adolescents in working through normative developmental hurdles, fostering adaptive solutions, and developing a strong sense of self. In addition, Jeffrey works very closely with parents. He strives to join with caregivers to understand what children are thinking, feeling, and communicating.
