About this school

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.
