Located less than ten miles west of Indianapolis, Avon Indiana, in Hendricks County has become one of the fastest growing communities in the country.

While its proximity to the big city allows its residents a multitude of employment and recreational options, its distance has allowed Avon to maintain its small town dedication to its residents. The Avon Community School Corporation contains 13 public schools including the nationally known Avon High School; home of the Avon Marching Black and Gold. Winners of seven consecutive first place championships in the annual ISSMA marching band competition. The marching Black and Gold were also recognized as the best high school marching band in the country from 2008 to 2010 by winning the Bands of America Grand Nationals competition.
