For these kids, “tell me more” goes to their core.
The Avery Coonley School provides an invigorating experience for children who want to be challenged. Founded by an educational innovator who opened the first kindergartens in the Chicago area, we offer an accelerated and enriched curriculum in which gifted and high-achieving children age 3 through grade 8 learn through exploration.
ACS students together create a unique collaborative culture where the drive to learn transcends all other differences.Deeply involved parents and highly committed faculty support this community of children, who learn together and learn by doing, and who welcome, include, and support each other in their diversity.
