Avasara runs majorly on solar during the day.
We choose recycled materials: our doors, furniture, floors and bricks are all made from recycled sources.
Advisory is the most personal student support structure at Avasara and considered to be a student’s family while she is with us at school. Avasara faculty members serve as advisors and students are put into age range-specific and small groups of 1:11 that meet three times weekly. The purpose of advisory is to provide students with a safe space for support, exploration and growth, in ways that are age-appropriate, relevant and authentic. In addition to small group meetings, individual check-ins between advisors and students personalize ongoing support and guidance.
Residential life at Avasara offers students an opportunity to connect with peers and build relationships that last a lifetime. It also prepares students for constructive and responsible living by fostering an environment which recognizes the needs of both the individual and the larger community. A host of enrichment activities, exposure visits and academic support provides a structure for students to excel, under the guidance of a supportive residential advisor and student life team.
Enrichment and Student Clubs
Opportunities for students to explore their interests and passions and apply skills outside of academic classes are an essential part of the Avasara experience. Our enrichment program provides structured opportunities for students to explore visual arts, performing arts, fitness, and STEM. Enrichment classes are offered four days a week, and in the evenings and on weekends for residential scholars. Activities may be led by external experts, Avasara faculty and staff, as well as students themselves. We also organize annual student retreats focused on reflection and team building.
