Timeless Values. Exceptional Academics.

With smaller class sizes, growth-oriented structure, and a strong commitment to academics, Advent Episcopal School will give your child an extraordinary foundation for success. Advent has been awarded the Alabama Independent School Association President's Award, recognizing our school as the highest performing independent K-8 school in Alabama, every year since 2016.


Challenging Academic Environment

Advent provides a rigorous and advanced curriculum with the space and capacity for innovation. Students are challenged beyond their perceived capabilities to meet high standards.

Confident Independent Thinkers

Students are encouraged and taught to question, challenge, and explore in their discovery of knowledge and truth. Our academic curriculum supports the development of lifelong learning habits.

Compassionate Community Builders

Advent fosters compassion and a strong sense of responsibility to cultivate a respectful and appreciative spirit of excellence - in and out of the classroom.
Advent offers a traditional, comprehensive educational experience. Students' studies center around language arts, math, science, social studies, French, music, art, keyboarding, and physical education. These core and special area subjects are enriched through field trips, speakers, and other activities.
