School Description and Mission Statement (School Year 2020–2021)
Avalon K-12 School was established at its current site in 1924. Our K-12 school serves all families on the island of Santa Catalina. Approximately seventy-five percent of our students attend Avalon Schools from kindergarten through high school graduation, creating a family-like atmosphere among our students, families, and staff.
From kindergarten to graduation, Avalon School is committed to maintaining rigorous academic expectations and encouraging personal integrity in a safe and supportive environment while fostering development of the 21st century college and career skill set. Our school-wide learner outcomes outline the qualities we strive to develop in our students:
Avalon students will...
Demonstrate independence, build strong content knowledge, comprehend, communicate and critique effectively, work productively in teams and become digitally literate.
Over two thirds of Avalon School graduates attend college or trade school off the island prior to returning to the Avalon workforce. Others choose to remain on the Island and immediately seek full time work, often based on previous job experience and relationships formed during their school years. Avalon School has a Hospitality, Tourism,and Recreation Career Technology Education Pathway to provide real life connections to further prepare students for their post-high school college and career experiences. Parents and students stay informed of student progress by accessing ParentVue for college and career information and School Loop to obtain assignment and assessment information.
Avalon School benefits from the involvement of local businesses and service organizations. The Avalon Lions and Rotary Clubs, the Mariner's Outreach Foundation, the Catalina Island Women’s Forum, and the Santa Catalina Island Foundation are among the key contributors to Avalon Schools. Thanks to their generosity, Avalon Schools has received numerous scholarships and in-kind gifts. The Catalina Island Conservancy, Catalina Island Museum, and Santa Catalina Island Marine Institute continue to provide an enriched content standards-aligned curriculum for our 4th through 6th grade students to expose them to the rich resources and environmental features and history on and around Catalina Island.
Secondary electives include Spanish, Art, Hospitality Tourism and Recreation, AVID, Instrumental Music, Robotics, and Yearbook. Avalon High School was recognized by US News and World Report as one of the Nation's top schools due to its Advanced Placement class offerings, participation, and test results. Our philosophy is to have technology support the curriculum and for all students, offering one to one Chromebook device for every student, every period of everyday.
