Avon Old Farms School

Avon, CT


Theodate Pope Riddle designed and founded this architecturally unique school. Its location within 850 acres of forested land provides for a number of outdoor activities, including fishing, hiking, camping, biking and cross-country skiing.


We are a dynamic community of learning which challenges boys to stretch themselves and to explore untapped potential in their journey to manhood. Mentored by a dedicated, talented faculty who offer successful models for our students to emulate, Avonians develop the self-confidence to cope with the anxieties of adolescence and to forge the critical foundations of adult identity.

As a boys' boarding school, our programs are designed specifically to help young men focus on their development at a time in life when distractions abound. Although numerous opportunities exist for our students to interact with girls from Miss Porter's, Ethel Walker's and other nearby schools, boys are free to live and learn in our structured, supportive environment. In an all-boys context, our students embrace scholastic challenges and compete in the athletic arena while feeling safe exploring the arts, experimenting with poetry, expressing school spirit, and just being themselves.
