Our School Profile

Recognizing the need for Christian education and childcare in the Boca Raton area, Advent established a kindergarten program in 1968. Today our 14-acre campus has grown to include the Early Childhood School, the Elementary & Middle School, the Advent Life Enrichment Center, and ADVENTure Club; our after school and camp programs.

Advent Lutheran School offers innovative programs for Infants-Grade 8 including Dual Language and Emergent Reader programs for Pre-K students, STEM enrichment for Elementary students, an individualized math program, 1:1 Technology program for Middle school, robotics, and Spanish for all ages. In addition to an academic curriculum tailored to meet each student’s needs, Advent provides opportunities in fine arts, technology, music, band, drama, and athletics. Middle School athletic teams have reached and State and National levels. Our aftercare and camp programs also accept elementary & middle school students from local public schools and offer a variety of engaging activities. The Early Childhood School participates in the VPK program. We are committed at Advent to provide each student an educational, social, and spiritual experience that will give each the necessary tools to navigate future endeavors with success and confidence.

Spiritual Development:

  • All classes are taught from a Biblical perspective, emphasizing God's truth as it applies to every aspect of a student's life.
  • Our Christian Character Program emphasizes traits pleasing to God and to each other. The following nine traits are felt to be fundamental in building caring individuals with positive relationships: thankfulness, trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship, joy, and hopefulness. Opportunities to apply Christian principles to life situations are purposefully and prayerfully planned throughout the year.

  • Our coaching staff is committed to excellence on the field/court and demand excellence from their athletes as students, teammates, and Christian competitors. Winning is important - but not as important as HOW they win. An emphasis is placed on winning with humility, losing with grace, and competing with intensity and character.
  • Believing competitive athletics to be an end result of Healthy Habits, we purposely teach lessons about and raise awareness of the impact nutrition and overall fitness has on one's performance - on and off the field.
