Why Avon?

1. The brotherhood is real: the results are extraordinary.

2. Our students learn to question: this pursuit of truth is the ultimate definition of higher learning.

3. Men of Avon exemplify a deep sense of morality: we challenge our students to explore what is right and wrong, and how they can strive to be their best selves.

4. Winged Beavers compete at the highest level: we embrace the struggle of victory or defeat – learning lessons that will last a lifetime.

"I find these boys to be kind, energetic, forthright, and willing to do what it takes to become their best self."

Here at Avon

"My father always tells me that the only thing you can completely control in life is your effort, and I’ve found that to be true here at Avon… Never give up your dreams, if you fail the first time, keep trying. If I had not been persistent in my efforts and didn’t believe in myself, I would not be standing before you as your leader today.”

- Kevin Huveldt '18
