History

of Advent

Advent-School-Classical-Education-Private-School-Carmel-Zionsville-Lebanon-Indianapolis-Noblesville-Whitestown-Westfield-Brownsburg
Advent Lutheran Church was founded in November 1994 with the building completed in May of 1997. Advent Lutheran Preschool began in 2000 with a 3s and 4s class, then added the half-day Kindergarten in 2013. Under Mrs. Trewartha’s direction, the MMO, Preschool and Kindergarten programs have become pillars in Zionsville for quality Early Childhood Education.
Though it had been considered in previous years, the Church began considering building an elementary school in earnest in 2020. In early 2021 a school expansion committee formed and began meeting regularly. By January 2022 a candidate, Pastor Aaron Schultz, had been identified to become the school’s first Headmaster. He was called by the Church to the role of Associate Pastor and Headmaster in April 2022.
Pastor Schultz’s extensive experience as a teacher in classical Lutheran schools led the board to agree and support the making of Advent a Classical Christian school. Advent Lutheran Classical School opened its doors in August 2022 with 1st and 2nd grade.
For 2024-2025, ALCS will offer 1st through 8th grade. With the support and generosity of Advent Lutheran Church, we hope to expand our building by 30,000 sqft in the coming years. 
In May of 2024, Advent was awarded Accreditation by the Consortium for Classical Lutheran Education.
 

1st & 2nd GradeAaron Schultz

Pastor Schultz graduated from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, NE in 2008 with a BA in Elementary Education. He taught in traditional Lutheran schools in New Orleans, LA and Denver, CO for the first five years. In 2013, Pastor Schultz was hired by Immanuel Lutheran School in Alexandria, VA and was introduced to Classical Lutheran Education. After 5 more years teaching middle school math, science and PE, Pastor Schultz decided to pursue a Masters of Divinity from Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, IN. He received his first call to Advent Evangelical Lutheran Church in April of 2022 and opened the doors to Advent Classical Lutheran School in August 2022.
