Extend the Day

The last ringing of the bell at 3:00 does not mean that academics are ended for the day at Advent. For parents who wish for their child to experience additional instruction or receive tutoring from Advent faculty, the school offers a way to "extend the day" with after-school enrichment programs. These programs, along with After School Care, enable working parents to keep their child in a safe and beneficial setting until they are able to be picked up.
