The Providence athletic program is committed to glorifying God by pursuing excellence in all team sports by the shaping of our student-athlete’s character through the teaching and application of humility, integrity, discipline, hard work, commitment, obedience, and a healthy competitive spirit. The athletic program strives to be competitive as competition provides a training ground for life in a challenging, competitive world. Although winning is important, the program is committed to teach the proper motivation for excelling: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3:17
The athletic program helps student-athletes understand that their self-worth is not based upon their performance. The Providence athletic program also seeks to develop athletes into spiritual leaders who will make a difference in a world that rejects Christ.
We derive the core values of the Providence Athletic Department from the Mission Statement of the School. Providence seeks to “respect students as unique individuals created in the image of God. We are dedicated to helping them realize their highest potential—spiritually, intellectually, physically, socially, and creatively.” Our athletic program includes the Physical Education program and is designed to develop the students’ physical fitness, athletic skills, and character.
