This is our second year in elementary school at PCA and our two kids love it! PCA is a great partner in our quest to raise our children to know and love the Lord. The teachers, staff, curriculum and after school activities are first class. While it is a sacrifice, it is worth every penny!

As a mom of an only child, I went thru an extensive search to find the right school for my daughter. I was one of those crazy parents that had a checklist and looked at everything at a school including sitting in the classroom. That was a long time ago as my daughter is now a junior in high school, and has been at Providence Christian Academy since she was in Kindergarten. We are so blessed to be at Providence. Whether you are looking for strong academics, a variety of extra- curricular activities, and/or a strong faith based education, you will find all of these and more. The more for us has been teachers that love my daughter and want her to be the best she can be. The more for us is the love and care from teachers and parents who are now my friends. The more is a community that prays for each other and celebrates the good, but helps you walk thru the bad. I wish you the best as you begin your journey for finding the right school for your family.

Our family has been a part of the PCA family for 8 years now. We have an 8th grader, 4th grader and 2nd grader. PCA is a wonderful, loving, Christian environment where my children learn and exceed in academics. PCA also comes along side our family and instills the biblical and Christian beliefs we as a family cherish. It truly is an extension of our home and we partner with our kids teachers to grow our children academically and spiritually. PCA is a financial sacrifice, but it is a sacrifice that will have eternal payoffs. PCA teaches children to be the hands and feet of Jesus by doing projects that help less fortunate and teaches our students love and compassion for all. PCA is without a doubt the best choice we ever made for our family. If you are looking for a academically strong and spiritually bible based education, PCA is for you.

We love Providence. We are VERY PLEASED with the academically challenging classes, caring teachers and administration, the strong Christian influence over my children and a variety of athletic/arts activities. There are opportunities for children with all kinds of interests, gifts and strengths to excel. We are so thankful to be a part of this great school family.

I have found Providence a great value in educating my two daughters. My eldest is graduating and was accepted and granted academic scholarships to several schools. Most importantly the Biblical World View has given my girls the ability to excel in life.

Solid academically, spirirtually strong. I have an 11th grader and a 5th grader. We are so blessed to have our children in a school that partners with us, to grow them up in their faith as well as prepare them academically for the challenges at the next level including college. Both of my children have been involved in school sports and extra curricular enrichment type activities. The quality of these programs is excellent, from fine arts to sports. Having teachers and coaches who love your children and want them to be successful in school and in life makes a huge difference. We are thankful to be a part of the Providence Family.

Best decision we ever made! Went to tour for middle school in the future (daughter was only 5 at the time). Was in tears in minutes and felt God was calling us there starting in kindergarten. Don''t let the financial side prevent you from looking into PCA, if He is calling you there, He will provide a way!

Providence is a wonderful place. It has an excellent faculty who academically challenge my children. They pray for my children and direct them in true life issues. I highly recommend this school as an extension of your Christian home. My children have grown academically and spiritually because of this school.

Providence is an outstanding school that promotes academic excellence and spiritual growth on equal footing. Students are loved for who they are, yet they are challenged to continue to become the person Christ intends for them to be. Every day is not perfect--anywhere-- but in the culture of Providence, students learn work through the bumps in the road. The teachers are wonderful and always available to partner with parents.

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.

I have two children in the Elementary School at Providence. The quality of the teachers and academic program has exceeded my expectations, and I highly recommend it. The culture of Providence encourages relationships and is built on trust and respect. This school does exactly what it says it will do - serve as an extension of my home where I can trust teachers, staff, other parents, and students. Without hesitation, I can say that Providence delivers on its promise to serve as an extension of my home.
