The Campaign for Avon Old Farms School

Brick for brick, Avon Old Farms was constructed to shape and fortify the minds and hearts of boys. For nearly a century, we have embraced what it means to be a boy; and along the way, we have redefined what it means to be a man. We stand ready to forge on to our next challenge ...to lead generations of men into a solid future—for Avon, for our communities, for the world.
