Experience Advent 2018

February Admission Open House
Tuesday, February 12, 2019
5:30 p.m. — 7:00 p.m.
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.

Open House Program:
5:15 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. | Check In
5:30 p.m.-6:15 p.m. | Faculty Panel and Q&A
6:15 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. | Campus Tour

Our Open House program is designed primarily for prospective parents. If you have an older student that is interested in scheduling a shadow day, please let us know!



Campus Tours

General campous tours are also scheduled every Wednesday that the school is in session. We invite you to join us at 8:00 a.m. for our weekly chapel service. The campus tour will begin immediately following chapel at 9 a.m.  

The tour is open to anyone who has a child and is interested in learning more about the school. No reservations are necessary although we would love to hear from you if you are planning to join us!

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.
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.
