middle school students at Providence Christian School - Dallas TX

Education in the Middle School at Providence aims at wisdom and equips students to live purposefully and intelligently as agents of restoration in God’s kingdom. Our students are inspired to take ownership of their education as their intellectual curiosity is stimulated and their faith is rooted through exploration of great ideas and texts from a biblical worldview.
