  • Classical, ChristianParent 04/04/2018
    Our 8th grade son was not doing well in his old school. He was especially bullied about his faith. While considering other schools, we were at first skeptical about Providence's claims. How could a school be driven towards wisdom, virtue and eloquence? Eventually we decided to enroll our son, and waited with sweaty palms until he came home from the first day. When he came home bursting with stories about how inviting his teachers and peers were, we knew we had nothing to worry about. Throughout the years, we have seen him come home everyday with more knowledge of his studies, the world, and God. He was especially excited about the 11/12th grade trip to Europe, which he returned from with many pictures and even greater friendships. One of the things he enjoyed best was the athletics program--although it was made clear that academics came before athletics (which, since everyone else accepted it, he was completely fine with; he almost did better than usual with the incentive of basketball). Our son graduated almost top of his class and is currently majoring in Tech Engineering in DeVry University. We are so pleased to have found Providence, and have directed several other parents to it. Thank you, Providence!
  • Close-knit CommunityStudent 04/04/2018
    I was immediately welcomed into the small, close-knit community of Providence. The teachers are understanding and helpful to me, and answer any questions I have with confidence. We study original texts and primary sources to get a clear idea of what the author had in mind when he wrote his works. I thrive on in-depth discussions, which Providence has an abundance of--I particularly enjoy that most classes are discussion-driven, allowing for a more thorough understanding of the subject at hand. In short, Providence is easily the best of the three schools I've been enrolled in over the past years. I fully intend to continue on through grade 12.
  • Classical education at it's finestParent 10/09/2015
    We are overjoyed with way that Providence teachers our oldest son. His teacher is full of excitement and he is constantly coming home singing songs about Jesus and reciting scripture. We cannot wait to see him grow at Providence and learn The Classics!
