The deans program is one of the highlights of an Avenues education. Deans are highly experienced educators who work full time to support the growth of individual students. They maintain a comprehensive overview of the student’s experience at Avenues and guide them through important academic and social transitions. From 6th grade through graduation, the Deans Program helps students transition from child to young adult.
