Fund for Avon FAQs
Why the Annual Fund:
“During his time at Avon Old Farms, we have witnessed our son mature from a boy to a young man—academically, socially, and physically. The administration and faculty uniquely understand teenage boys and their needs, and the school has been an excellent fit for our son. We know that tuition alone does not cover the cost of a boy’s holistic education at AOF. We believe our contributions to the Annual Fund help to further the school’s mission, to support our son indirectly, and to enhance what the school can offer to the boys overall.”
