- Avenor Identity and Mission
Avenor College is a non-profit, bilingual international school rooted in Romanian culture. We co-create for each individual student aged 2 to 18 a challenging learning experience, providing them with skills for the future. Our vision is to create a positive and progressive educational landmark for Romania.
“Co-creating the best future“
At Avenor, we are all learners and educators. We are builders of future capacity, enabling our students to find their own strengths, create their own journeys, and frame their own future. Working together, we co-create the best possible future for each student, for each community member, and for all of us together, within and beyond our school.
Our Journey So Far
In 2007, the school opened with five students in first grade. Ten years later, Avenor College has 450 students aged from two to sixteen and over 100 staff. The school is situated in two locations in Northern Bucharest: an elegant historical villa housing our preschool and a beautiful, custom-built campus bordered by Baneasa forest.
We are accredited by the Romanian Ministry of Education and authorized by Cambridge International Examinations to offer Checkpoint, IGCSE and A level examinations. The school is also a member of the Common Ground Collaborative, an innovative global network of leading international schools.
Avenor College was founded by the Avenor Foundation, a non-profit organization created by Diana Segarceanu, Florin Segarceanu and Andreia Mitrea.
The story of the name Avenor
The name Avenor comes from the word future (fr. Avenir) and from the word road (engl and fr. Avenue). Avenor means being decisive whilst following your path, even if that entails both hard work and tenaciously overcoming barriers. It also refers to those who build the future. This is what happens at Avenor College - we create the future.
