Experience Advent

Our open house dates for the 2019-20 school year will be posted this summer!
Our Admission Open House is a wonderful time to learn more about Advent Episcopal School!

As the only PK-8 school in downtown Birmingham, Advent is able to take advantage of the rich and extraordinary educational and cultural opportunities at our doorstep. Meaningful exposure to the fine arts, music, foreign language and critical thinking spurs intellectual curiosity amongst our students.  Advent is small by design, even though our students come from 43 different zip codes. Every Advent student is known by name. They are challenged, celebrated and filled with wonder as Advent instills early on a desire to be lifelong learners.  Passions, such as Chinese, chess and soccer, are realized and fostered here. Achievement is evident: We have been awarded the AISA President's Award for the past three years as the highest performing K-8 independent school in Alabama.

Whether it's your first time to visit Advent or you are familiar with our campus, the Open House provides the perfect opportunity to take a deeper dive into the our wonderful school.

Prospective families should gather at the Front Office of the school at 8 a.m. to attend chapel and take the tour, or 9 a.m. if you would prefer the tour only.
