Welcome to Avenues São Paulo, the second campus of Avenues: The World School. We’re honored that you would consider Avenues for your child and look forward to supporting you through the admissions process, should you choose to apply.
Applying to Avenues
A student admitted to one campus is admitted to all our campuses: New York, São Paulo, Shenzhen and Online. That means families with professional commitments in Brazil, China, or—with Avenues Online—anywhere else can provide their children with an Avenues education on three continents. In addition, students at all our campuses benefit from frequent digital collaboration with their peers in other countries, as well as opportunities to join Global Journeys programs and campus exchanges in New York and Shenzhen.
Admissions for the 2019-20 Academic Year
For the 2019-20 school year, Avenues São Paulo is open to students in nursery through 11th grade. 12th grade will open in the 2020-21 school year.
From 2020, Avenues São Paulo will offer the Small World program for 2-year-olds. For February 2020 admission, applications are due on November 29, 2019 (subsequently, rolling admissions will apply). Please see the menu below for information on how to apply to Small World.
Avenues São Paulo is pleased to offer rolling admissions. Rolling admissions invites families to apply at any time during the year and receive a decision from the admissions committee once all parts of the application process are completed.
Natural entry points are in August and January.
Students coming from schools around the world where the academic year does not correspond with our academic year (August-June) will continue in the same grade level when they enroll in Avenues São Paulo. For example, a child who has completed 6th grade in a Brazilian school and enters Avenues in January, will complete 6th grade at Avenues before moving on to 7th grade in August.
Please select the grade that your child is applying for to view the application process and requirements.
