Avon Old Farms School is a dynamic community of learning which challenges boys to stretch themselves and to explore untapped potential in their journey to manhood.
Mentored by a dedicated, talented faculty who offer successful models for our students to emulate, Avonians develop the self-confidence to cope with the anxieties of adolescence and to forge the critical foundations of adult identity.
Avon Old Farms School strives to be the best school for boys by cultivating young men of integrity who honor wisdom, justice, service, and the pursuit of truth.
We promote intellectual, creative, and emotional growth in our students by providing a structured, supportive learning environment that encourages self-discovery and social responsibility.
Avon offers a thorough, straightforward, and structured program to students diverse in their academic abilities.
In their efforts to succeed, all students are at once challenged and supported by faculty members who are consistently available to students for extra help outside the classroom.
Avon believes that this approach, designed to nurture self-confidence and a healthy sense of self-worth, is excellent preparation for the demands and rigors of college.
