To provide a superior, advanced, and enriched education to a diverse student population in a caring, Christian environment at an independent, equal-opportunity school


The school staff believes that each child is unique and is in a constant process of change. Because of this, the mental development of each child cannot be isolated from the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The individual child should be exposed to and involved in the total learning process—thinking, planning, and problem solving. To develop fully the potential of each child, the school staff seeks and uses the best methods and materials available in each area of learning, believing that all areas of learning should be related to and interwoven with a student’s every experience. To assist in the continuing growth of each child, Advent teachers employ varied learning concepts and provide an atmosphere of enthusiasm for learning. Further, it is believed that a continuing evaluation of the learning process of each child in relation to the school program is essential.

This Episcopal school is committed to the education of students in a Christian atmosphere and to fulfilling its responsibilities to the community by providing qualified, experienced teachers and staff and a balanced curriculum. The staff strives to make total involvement in education a bond between the school, the teacher, the student, and the parent. The student enrollment is limited to provide individual attention and instruction.


Almighty God, our heavenly Father, watch over, we pray Thee, the Advent Episcopal School. Bless all who teach and all who learn, and grant that we may ever look unto Thee, who art the fountain of all wisdom. Lead us in the search for truth and beauty; grant us grace to choose the good and reject the evil; and let Thy love show forth in our lives, we ask through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.
Founded in 1950 and located in downtown Birmingham, Alabama, Advent Episcopal School is a coeducational, college-preparatory day school for students grades Pre-Kindergarten through 8th.
