About Our Great School

A safe, supportive, and thriving learning environment.

Avant School of Excellence is the ONLY accredited private school located in Florida City. We strive for  excellence in everything that we do, especially as our actions and decisions relate to living a life of honor, integrity, and social responsibility.

Our mission is to improve educational practices and provide an intensive college preparatory school for diverse student populations, particularly those that are historically underrepresented on the campuses of our nation's higher learning institutions.  We believe that education is the bridge to heights unknown.
