After-School Enrichment

The last ringing of the bell at 3:00 does not mean that the day has ended 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. Advent partners with various organizations around Birmingham to provide additional programs held right on campus! 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.
