We're Looking forward to 2020-2021

Stay connected with the Avon community over the summer!

We're looking forward to Zooming with you and hearing your feedback throughout the next few months. After each Zoom meeting, we'll send an email to further communicate important information for the upcoming school year.

On the date of each Zoom meeting, you will receive a reminder email and Zoom link which will allow access to the specific event.

Big Brother Mentorship Program

Our big brother program this year is going to look a little different from past programs. This year, we solicited applications from boys who were rising juniors and seniors, and from that pool we selected 40 boys to be big brothers, based on their character, grades, involvement in the school, etc. 

Each big brother will have a team of new boys and will act as a student advisor. He will meet frequently and consistently with his team of little brothers (each big will have about four "littles", and each group will be a mix of freshmen, sophomores, and upper-class new boys) to acclimate them to the school as well as help them with the transition to life at Avon. 

It is our hope that these small advisory teams will also remain close even when their new-boy year comes to an end. The "bigs" brothers will communicate with the "littles" as early as possible in the summer, and at least a few times throughout the summer. The "bigs" will be here on move-in day to meet their littles and families.
