As many of you know, Advent Episcopal School has just completed a successful school accreditation. The team that visited our campus could not have been more impressed! They met with school administrators, visited classrooms, had lunch with the student council, enjoyed a breakfast with the Board of Trustees and a coffee with parents. All of this gave them an idea about our school from the many different groups that make Advent a family.

Advent is a “hidden gem” according to our visiting team. We are on a mission to reveal this hidden gem. So, what is our story? Advent’s history and our desires for the future mingle perfectly together.  Our reputation speaks for itself, but we need to reveal more. Our good news has to be talked about and shared with others.

5th grade 5

We have a coffee planned for February 27 at 8:30 am for anyone interested in hearing our story and what makes it so special. Invite your friends and neighbors to join us on this day. Our applicant pool continues to grow as more and more people learn about us. Enrollment for next year is strong, so do not wait to apply. Whether you are interested in Pre-k, kindergarten, 3rd grade, or 6th grade, come and experience Advent. We cannot wait to make you a part of the Advent family.


So, let’s no longer be the “hidden gem,” but the “crown jewel” of downtown Birmingham!
