The best way is onward and upward.
What is your dream for your child? What are their dreams?
When they learn to enjoy and use their gifts at an early age, when they are encouraged and inspired to put their full intellect and passion into all they do, there is no ceiling on what they will do in their life. They will be eager and open to challenge in every way and flourish at whatever school and path they choose.
The Avery Coonley School harnesses the energy of this critical time in bright children’s lives when they can either engage with a learning community that helps them soar, or become bored and disengage. Our graduates are creative, curious critical thinkers and independent, lifelong learners who never settle for “good enough.” They bring their full potential to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future. They shine and lead in high school, college, and life.
The Avery Coonley School made both of my children eager to learn and participate. They do not fear new things, responsibility, leadership, or challenge. They engage easily in the world outside Avery Coonley. Their high school teachers often note that they stand out in academics and maturity from their peers.
