The Advent -- true to its name -- is a beginning; the beginning of an adventure in learning that starts at four-year-old kindergarten and progresses through eighth grade to give each individual child a firm academic foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Yet, we believe that the mental development of a child cannot be isolated from his or her physical, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
In a big, rapidly changing world, The Advent provides the stability of a wholesome, caring, small-school environment where each child can experience the total learning process - thinking, planning, and problem solving - in an atmosphere of enthusiasm.
This has been our commitment for more than a half-century.
Today, we are just as committed as ever.
At the Advent Episcopal Day School, our mission is to offer a superior, advanced, and enriched education to a diverse student population in a caring, Christian enviornment at an independent, equal-opportunity school.
