We take the long view approach: focusing not only on short-term goals,
but considering how everything we do forms a person’s character for life.
We are proud of our reputation for scholastic excellence, but a Providence education provides more than academic results alone. Our end goal is a mature, wise, faith-thriving, purposefully-living adult. We desire that our graduates have a curiosity about the world, a hunger for knowledge, and a desire to humbly serve others in whatever vocation the Lord has planned for them. We want them to wrestle with their beliefs, see connections beyond the curriculum, and develop perseverance so that they leave Providence with the ability to understand and tackle the complexities and challenges life will bring.
It is also important to have a picture of what we are striving towards. Several years ago, members of our community gathered together to form the “Portrait of a Providence Graduate.”
