We Are Experts in Educating Boys
At Avon, we teach boys—day students and boarders alike—how they learn best. With our R.E.A.L Learning System (Relational, Experiential, Active, and Lifelong) and our Prep4ward Program for leadership/health/wellness-success training, day students are equipped to THRIVE.
Typically, there are a limited amount of highly sought-after day student openings at Avon Old Farms; however, because of our new expanded fall structure, we've opened our capacity for more day students!
As a result of our systematic approach to teaching the whole boy, we've mastered the active "class-outside thing" and have successfully been stretching our legs—and our MINDS—in nature's halls for decades.
