What is Avon Old Farms Looking For?
The Avon Old Farms School for boys is looking for well
rounded young men of strong moral character and work
ethic. It is a close-knit, valued centered school that builds
students of integrity who honor wisdom, justice, inclusion,
service, and the pursuit of truth. The ideal applicants are
well-rounded students who perform in the classroom,

What is academic excellence in the eyes of Avon Old Farms?
It’s not about perfection. The school recognizes that adolescence is a journey of discovery where boys can be at different places on their path. They focus on meeting a student where they are at, surround them with a strong supporting cast of teachers, mentors, and coaches who help guide them on their journey.
Boys who want an educational environment where they can grow, learn about who they are without fear of failure, and feel supported are encouraged to apply.
Aspirando et Perserverando
The school was founded in 1927 by Theodate Pope Riddle to be an indestructible school for boys. Avon’s motto of Aspirando et Perserverando, which translates to aspiring and persevering, embodies the school’s
philosophy of evaluating candidates. Prospects who have blemishes on their transcript are not disqualified from the admissions process if they can articulate and demonstrate their earnestness to improve.
