Advent Episcopal School is an Episcopal, independent school for students in junior pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Advent is a traditional school with a rigorous and advanced academic curriculum providing the space and capacity for innovation. We believe each child is unique and in a constant process of change so we involve students in the total learning process by engaging their physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being to meet high standards. Students are encouraged through varied educational approaches to question, challenge, and explore in their discovery of knowledge and truth.
The school staff believes that each child is unique and is in a constant process of change. Because of this, the mental development of each child cannot be isolated from the physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The individual child should be exposed to and involved in the total learning process—thinking, planning, and problem solving. To develop fully the potential of each child, the school staff seeks and uses the best methods and materials available in each area of learning, believing that all areas of learning should be related to and interwoven with a student’s every experience. To assist in the continuing growth of each child, Advent teachers employ varied learning concepts and provide an atmosphere of enthusiasm for learning. Further, it is believed that a continuing evaluation of the learning process of each child in relation to the school program is essential.
This Episcopal school is committed to the education of students in a Christian atmosphere and to fulfilling its responsibilities to the community by providing qualified, experienced teachers and staff and a balanced curriculum. The staff strives to make total involvement in education a bond between the school, the teacher, the student, and the parent. The student enrollment is limited to provide individual attention and instruction.
