For Prospective Students & Families

This section hosts answers to some of the most common questions we get from prospective students and families.

Please note:  We are on spring break for the first week of April.  Starting April 6th, and at least until May 1st, we will be online at Avalon.  The transition so far has been fairly smooth.  We will still give 'tours' but they will be via phone or zoom, depending on the size of the tour groups.  You can still sign up for them using the link below.  We will be in contact with you about how we will connect once you sign up.  Shadows and Open Houses are cancelled for the time being.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  

Learn about the benefits of our award-winning Project-Based Learning model; read testimonials from former students, parents, and professionals; and get those burning questions answered.

Still curious?  Come for an open house, set up a tour, or shadow for the day. If you're not quite ready to sign up for one of these opportunities, we’d love to talk to you about enrolling at Avalon School - give us a call! Please feel free to contact us for more information. When you're ready to sign up for an Open House, tour, or shadow experience, make sure you do so online.
