Why Advent?

Here are five reasons why you should partner with Advent for your child’s education:

Advent School photos by Christopher HuangCurriculum: Advent’s experiential program immerses students in their learning to become deep thinkers, problem solvers, and intellectual risk-takers. Our progressive, standards-based curriculum challenges students to not only become great students but also understand how what they are learning connects to other subject matter, themselves, and the world around them.

Faculty: Our amazing faculty inspire children every day to be flexible thinkers, risk takers, and good citizens. They present at conferences all over the world, sharing with educators what we do here at Advent. We also welcome educators from across the globe, including Iceland, Romania, Australia, and China, and from schools in and around the Boston area to learn from our teachers in their classrooms. The Advent School is an official school visit site for this year’s Progressive Educator Network’s (PEN) Annual Conference and ERB’s 90th Annual Conference. As leaders in Reggio Emilia teaching, Advent hosts its own conference, The Advent Collaborative, for educators and community members to demonstrate how this early childhood philosophy translates to an elementary education.

From partnerships with the Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Science, and MIT’s D-Lab, along with countless other museums, science and research laboratories, and cultural and historic centers, Advent students appreciate that learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom. They are inspired by the world around them. To that end, Advent chose to be a sponsor of the Wonder of Learning Boston exhibit.

Foundations for the Future: Advent students take their Advent educations with them. By investing in the early years, your child will be ready to embark on their next schools journey. Advent graduates go on to Boston Latin School, BB&N, Milton Academy, Brimmer and May, Beaver Country Day School, Winsor School, Roxbury Latin, among many others. For eligible students, Advent has a 100% acceptance rate to the Boston Exam Schools.  Most importantly, they take their passion for learning, their self-advocacy skills, and their belief that they can change the world with them wherever they go.

Student at Makerspace Saturday WorkshopEnrichment: Advent’s robust Enrichment Program offerings allow students to develop and hone a true passion. Whether you need care for your child until 6:00 p.m. daily or your child wants to try new things, we can’t wait to see what they will explore. From LEGO Robotics and Odyssey of the Mind to violin, news journalism, and rock climbing, we have it all!
