Advent Episcopal School offers its students and their families a unique and valuable educational setting that truly prepares students for the future. Since its establishment in 1950, the school has built a national reputation for academic excellence. Upon graduation, our students are highly sought by the most prestigious schools in the country. Our students excel in an environment that is safe, stable, and wholesome. Small by design, our students are cherished and known by their name. Each is an individual, and they are celebrated for who they are and what they are able to accomplish.
Advent is a diverse community of bright children who are challenged by our accelerated academic program presented in a caring, Christian environment. Our Advent community supports one another and extends to faculty, students, parents, and staff. Not only do our students become critical thinkers, but they also actively support the school community and develop relationships with faculty and friends that last a lifetime.

Located in the heart of downtown, our students make their way to Advent each morning from over 40 different zipcodes!

I feel very fortunate that my two children had the opportunity to spend their elementary and middle school years at Advent.  Not only were they more than adequately prepared academically to succeed at two of the most challenging high schools in the state, the character and spiritual development they received at Advent will continue to benefit them throughout their lives.
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.
