Alumni/Parents Testimonies

Lucy Washburne, Alumni Director

Over the years, Providence parents and students have consistently attested to the strength and value of their Providence years. Here is a sampling:

 

 

“One of the things that I have enjoyed is the commitment to word of God at Providence. I know that what my wife and I are teaching at home is being taught in the classroom as well. The centrality of the word of God is seen through the teachers who speak about their own passion for the word of God and connect God’s word to the subject that is being taught, I am very encouraged to know that the word of God is central to Providence.”

“Being in the friendly and caring Christian environment daily gave me the confidence to be friendly to others. It made it easy for me to stay committed to my values even when I am around others with different values.”

“Providence’s greatest asset is its Christian emphasis. The integrated Christian world view with God at the center gave me a strong foundation for my college experience in which my faith was challenged.”

“My elementary and junior high years at Providence made me appreciate education. The School’s classical approach to literature and history, as well as my excellent teachers, laid a foundation that I could build on in high school. I still have an interest in a wide variety of subjects (I have chosen to continue my education at Harvard Business School), and I credit Providence with my continued appreciation for learning.”
