Student Life

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.

Community Service

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:

  • Village of Hope, Inc. - our sister school in Haiti which educates over 600 students from the ages of 4 through 18 years old and it's health care clinic serving staff, students and surrounding community
  • Boca Helping Hands - a local ministry helping families in need of nutritious meals, clothing, and/or employment assistance
  • Family Promise - an organization assisting families who have found themselves homeless due to economic difficulties
  • Forgotten Soldiers - an organization devoted to our armed service men and women deployed overseas
  • American Red Cross - for specific relief efforts including the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, the tornadoes in the mid-west, and the hurricane in New Orleans
  • Operation Mobilization - children's rights, education, and protection world wide

Buddy Program

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.
