Since 1961, The Advent School has provided an outstanding education grounded in the principles of social justice. At Advent, we believe that teaching children within a meaningful historical, cultural, or environmental context builds confident students who seek out connections within their learning experiences. Our faculty draws upon Boston’s vast resources: from various museums to the Freedom Trail, Advent students recognize the benefits of learning within the city. At Advent, learning is not confined to the classroom.
Located in the heart of Boston, children from Pre-Kindergarten through Sixth Grade are actively engaged in mastering their skills. Our classrooms foster dialogue and encourage critical thinking across the subject areas of Mathematics, Reading, Writing, Science, History, and Geography. The Arts play a major role in our program, while technology is the vehicle through which students learn to research and represent their understanding.
With two highly skilled teachers in each classroom, we know our students well. Children work in small groups led by teachers whose focus is to deepen each student’s understanding. With a diverse population of students, each child brings their distinct heritage, direct experience, and talents to the learning environment. Our classrooms foster collaboration and children learn with and from one another.
