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.
Providence focuses on foundational 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.
