How to Apply

Advent Application


We are so glad that you want to start (or continue) your child's educational path at Advent. To attend Advent, each student must apply by going through the application process. Please remember, if you have any questions along the way, the staff at Advent is more than glad to help. Many students who successfully apply and enroll at Advent do so well in advance of their entry year.  While Lower School (Pre-K and Kindergarten) is where most students start at Advent, we do accept students each year at all grade levels. To be considered for Pre-Kindergarten, a student must be 4 years old by September 1.
Applying to Advent involves three separate phases: Apply, Review, and Acceptance.


The first is the application phase. To be considered as “Applied”, Advent must have in its possession:

  1. A completed Application Form: Click the link to complete the on-line Application.
  2. Photo of the Applicant: The photo may be uploaded or mailed into the school.
  3. $75.00 Application fee  Paid as part of the on-line Application process. This fee also covers testing.
Once the school has received the three required items, you will be contacted about setting up a testing date.


The next phase is the review phase. Parents are requested to bring their child to Advent for an entrance exam.  The exam Advent uses for kindergarten is the KSAT. Grade school applicants are given the SAT (Stanford Achievement Test).


The final phase is the acceptance phase.  If accepted, the parents will receive a letter from the school with instructions on how to complete the online contract.  This contract must be signed electronically by all parents within 10 days.
In addition, the school will request three letters of recommendation for applicants entering grades 1 through 8.
