Description

Young men at our all boys private high school in Connecticut are free to discover their true identity through the exploration of school life without reservation. Every aspect of our program is engineered to guide and challenge boys to find their niche and passion in life. While our academic curriculum is geared to how boys learn, we also create a foundation for boys to mature emotionally and philosophically.

Our teachers are trained to teach boys how to exercise empathy in everyday situations, in and out of the classroom. Understanding what it may feel like in another person’s shoes is essential to building the Brotherhood, and ultimately the community. Boys learn to think beyond themselves here at Avon Old Farms and take the empathy mindset out into the world at large.

Unique Characteristics

1. Avonians experience life training through our Prep4ward program with weekly classes in Character, Masculinity, and Brotherhood for one half of the year and Health, Wellness, DEI, and College Preparedness for the other half of the year through grade-specific meetings to educate, model, and foster in every boy the importance of being a good man and a good brother.

2. R.E.A.L. Learning is a systematic methodology Avon Old Farms established to guide and support our mission of educating our students. The tenants of R.E.A.L. Learning—Relational, Experiential, Active, and Lifelong—establish a foundation that wholly aid not only in how we educate boys, but also why we educate boys.
