We believe that learning is about more than what is taught in the classroom. It is about the educational experience a child enjoys through hands-on learning in a variety of situations both on campus and in the community.
On-Campus Activities and Organizations
Advent students are given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of activities and interests. Student organizations include: Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, STEM Club, and Technology Club among others. In addition, Advent offers a comprehensive sports program, an art club, a student yearbook staff, band instruction, choir, and a variety of public speaking opportunities and leadership opportunities throughout the year including our Buddy Program and Field Days.
Students are highly encouraged to participate in numerous service opportunities throughout the year. Some of these are in partnership with Advent Church, some are class sponsored activities, and others are inspired by current circumstances or student led initiatives. Some of our efforts in the past have been focused on:
One of the unique features of Advent School is its extensive Buddy Program. We are blessed by having all generations being served on our campus - from infants through retired senior citizens. Our youth is "buddied up" with those of another age group for special activities throughout the year. The 8th graders and the Kindergarteners attend chapels together each week. The 6th graders visit the "grandmas and grandpas" at Advent Square residential senior living on a regular basis to swap stories, play games, and eat! Other grade levels pair up for a variety of activities including reading stories, craft projects, field trips, math games and physical activities. The mentoring opportunities are an important part of our Christian character development emphasis.
