We could not be happier with both the Christian and academic education our kindergartener is receiving at Providence! Being a part of this school has been a wonderful experience for our entire family!

Awesome school. Academically rigorous. The teachers love on my children. They even helped them through the passing of a pet! I would not trust children to any other school.

Love this school. Strong educational standards. Watching my children grow in their faith and academics is amazing. The faculty love my children, pray for them, and do a great job partnering with us.

This school is awesome! A great environment for learning, for social development (athletics and fine arts) and for service to others.

So grateful for the rigor of academics but the feel of a community. We would not want our boys anywhere else.!!
