Avon Old Farms embraces Diversity and Multiculturalism
Boys at Avon learn to be comfortable in their own shoes by interacting with the diverse community around them.
With a student body of 404 boys from 26 states and 24 countries, our students learn to become citizens of the world, with friends from all corners of the Earth. A boy's roommate might be from another country, and his lab partner might have a different religion; however, rather than being afraid of differences, the Village of Avon Old Farms provides a safe environment for our boys to explore their differences openly at a diverse boarding school in the Northeast.
Our school mission states that we "cultivate young men of integrity, who honor wisdom, justice, inclusion, service, and the pursuit of truth." We adhere to this mission by observing:
Hispanic Heritage Month | Black History Month
Asian Pacific American Heritage Month
Ally Week | National Day of Silence
