Providence Christian School
Founded in 1989, Providence provides Christian families with a challenging educational experience designed to help them know, love, and practice that which is true, good, and excellent and to prepare them to live purposefully and intelligently in the service of God and man. From the beginning with seventeen students in our first temporary location to today with more than 440 students in our permanent campus on Lovers Lane, we have remained committed to providing an outstanding classical, Christ-centered education for our students.
The playground provides a setting for students to relax and spend time with friends throughout the day. At Providence, your child will be surrounded by Christian friends and encouraged to build strong friendships with their peers.
Nature Studies Garden
Beginning in Prekindergarten and Kindergarten, the study of nature is an important component of Providence’s science curriculum. In the Nature Studies Garden, students develop their powers of observation, recognition, counting, and classifying while studying God’s creation.
The Memorial Garden provides a setting for students to read, sketch, study, or eat lunch in a quiet, restful environment while honoring the lives of former Providence students.
Through the Word, humanity discovers God, the meaning of life, and our responsibility to love one another as God has loved us. Providence seeks to instill this value of both the written and spoken word of God through our English curriculum. As part of this comprehensive curriculum, students participate in weekly library visits in which they are encouraged to discover classic works of literature.
Providence athletics programs seek to inspire a lifetime enjoyment of physical activities and to “present our bodies as living sacrifices holy and acceptable to the Lord.” The School’s full-size gym facilitates many of these athletics programs, hosting physical education classes, team practices, school assemblies, and sports games. Classes One through Five participate in physical education classes, while Classes Six, Seven, and Eight may choose to join Providence athletics teams, which include soccer, football, basketball, volleyball, cross country, and track.
Prekindergarten and Kindergarten
The primary focus of the School’s early childhood program is to help children develop a sense of wonder and curiosity and to train students in good habits such as attentiveness, obedience, and respect for authority, all while laying the foundation for reading, writing, and math. The Early Childhood or PK/K Wing houses the classrooms for these students, providing a setting for nature studies, art, music, math, and language arts.
An understanding and love for classic, traditional music teaches Providence students to know and discern what is good, true, and beautiful. God’s grace equips all of us with the means to worship Him through music. Providence’s music program seeks to develop our students’ musical skills, as well as to develop a love for worship through beautiful music. The choir rooms provide an environment for students to participate in weekly music classes, which challenge students to appreciate excellence in music.
The Providence Athletics Program develops students’ physical fitness, athletic skills, and character. In addition to daily physical education classes, students use the Providence Field for athletics, playtime, school-wide gatherings, and living history days.
Providence offers a classical education that emphasizes the study of works of art, music, literature, history, and science, each of which expresses profound insight, artistic creativity, and enduring cultural value. As an extension of this philosophy, Providence displays classic works of art throughout the building to encourage students to appreciate these beautiful masterpieces.
Through the Providence art curriculum, students learn to appreciate the One who “has made everything beautiful in His time.” Not only do students explore historical works of art, but also they learn how to create artistic works of their own, which are displayed at the end of each year at Fine Arts Day.
