Welcome to Tallahassee's Avant Schools of Excellence

Dear ASE Community,

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Tallahassee’s Avant Schools of Excellence, where our mission is to improve educational practices and provide a college preparatory school for all students, especially those who have been historically underrepresented in higher education. We are committed to providing our scholars with a high-quality education that prepares them for the academic rigors of college and beyond.

At Avant Schools, we believe that education is the bridge to heights unknown. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to creating a learning environment that is challenging, engaging, and supportive. Our curriculum is designed to provide our scholars with a solid foundation in core academic subjects while also integrating technology, the arts, and physical education to provide a well-rounded educational experience.

We understand that every scholar comes to us with unique talents, abilities, and needs. That is why we work closely with families and scholars to create individualized learning that addresses their strengths and challenges. We provide a variety of support services, including tutoring and counseling, to ensure that every scholar has the resources they need to succeed.

We are proud to have a diverse and inclusive community of scholars, families, and staff at Avant Schools. We value the contributions that each person brings to our community, and we are committed to fostering a culture of respect, equity, and inclusion.

Thank you for choosing Avant Schools of Excellence for your child’s education. We look forward to working with you to help your child reach their full potential.


Mrs. Julie Ravenell, M.S.
Head of School
