For Educators

For over a decade, Avalon School has pioneered two separate, powerful models of education: a Project Based Learning curriculum and a Teacher-Powered governance model. We strongly believe that these two aspects have the capacity to change education, and we are eager to share our experience. 

Starting in the 2015-2016 school year, Avalon is now offering an array of professional development services, from short, student-led tours to several day immersive experiences. 

To learn more about Avalon first-hand, please go here to schedule a tour specifically designed for educators. 

For a more intensive immersion experience, please inquire about our current packages. 

In the fall of 2015, Avalon joined forces with the Center for Teaching Quality (CTQ) to host the National Conference for Teacher-Powered Schools and we continue to work closely together.

Finally, if you are are currently planning your own Teacher-Powered School, grant money is available for planning, devlepment, and support.  See this page for more information: Teacher-Powered Schools Mini Grants.
