Providence focuses on the core knowledge and basic skills that intellectually gifted students need in order to be well prepared for high school at the most selective college-preparatory schools in the area. To appropriately challenge Providence’s academically able students, the academic program is designed to be a year ahead of most schools in all core subjects. Because the School focuses on a core curriculum, the school day is shorter than that at most schools. In this way each family may choose additional curricula or extracurricular activities it deems important, along with church-related and community volunteer work to which the family feels called.
Providence was founded to serve academically able students who possess strong, God-given intellectual gifts, and whose parents desire that their children be given a challenging classical, Christian education. We seek to develop young scholars who are responsible, self-motivated, and intellectually curious—students who love learning and will become lifetime learners and good stewards of their gifts.
