What We Do

The Parents of Avon meet monthly during the school year. Following a short general meeting to plan concession stands, the Blue Blazer Ball, and other projects, we enjoy listening to faculty (and often students) speak on topics like clubs and community service programs, intersession highlights, and school traditions. We often visit parts of campus like our newly renovated refectory and servery, the Estabrook Arts Center, the STEM complex, and the Nimrod Cabin and Pavilion. Our meetings are a wonderful way to meet other parents and get "the inside scoop" at AOF. Join us!

Blue Blazer Ball

This annual spring dinner and auction gala provides a unique opportunity for the extended Avon Old Farms family to celebrate the traditions and values of this exceptional school. The purpose of our fundraising endeavors is to enhance the boys’ experiences during their years at Avon Old Farms School.

Our 2019 event raised a record-breaking $140,000 for the Student Enrichment Fund and $95,000 for the Outreach Program.

The Student Enrichment Fund supports enhancements in academics, sports, arts and extracurricular activities for the benefit of Avon students.

Here are just a few examples of how the Student Enrichment Fund was used last year:

  • 3D printer for Club Forge to build drones
  • Ropes course, tubing & Six Flags for class orientation programs
  • Birthday card and $5 for each student
  • Visiting authors, artists and workshops
  • Live streaming athletic contests
  • Boar’s Head tenderloin steaks
  • Intersession project funding
  • Solar waste compactors

The Outreach Program was established by Avon Old Farms School to provide financial resources, as finances allow, to support students with demonstrated financial need who encounter unexpected financial difficulties. Monies awarded are outright grants without the expectation of repayment.
