What I love about Avon...

"I love everything about Avon. Avon boys are the best, but what I love most about Avon is how my son’s advisor, teachers, and coaches all support and challenge him to be his best. That’s the difference. At Avon, I have always felt that there are so many special people genuinely caring for my son, helping him to do the most with his talents and interests and showing him new ones he did not realize he had. That’s the Avon experience."

~ Sarah Gardella, Parent, Class of 2019
