My child has been at Providence Academy since Jr. K and has thrived in this environment. Providence Academy provides a nurturing environment that couples an accelerated curriculum with traditional Christian values. Providence prides itself in molding well-rounded young men and women who excel academically, are excellent stewards of Christ and good citizens of the world we live in. The teachers and staff are excellent, the class sizes are small and the extracurricular programs are well rounded offering an ideal setting for children to learn in. Thumbs up for Providence Academy!

Great learning environment for our child! Providence Academy offers an excellent learning experience - high academic standards coupled with Christian values presented in a nurturing and welcoming environment. Small class sizes allow the teachers to be hands-on and personal with every student. My son loves going to school every day and flourishes in this environment. As a parent, I couldn't ask for more for my child!

Providence Academy is an amazing place - it is a truly Christ- centered school that has become an extension of our family. The administration and teachers are loving, smart, kind and creative. The encourage each child, they all know every child by name and the school is such a positive place for all kids. The school's spiritual focus and academic rigor are top notch! We are so grateful for PA!

Providence Academy is a great Christian school. It is everything our Upper School student needs. With small class sizes, he gets the personalized attention that he needs. Because of the family like atmosphere created at the school, he has a built in support system of friends and teachers to help him through these challenging middle school years. I love the whole idea of no compromises. Strong Academics and Strong Faith. Lots of schools can teach academics but very few will teach my child how to live out his faith. The teachers at Providence Academy Upper School are simply the best and do both these things every single day. We are truly blessed.

Excellent school! Both of our students attend here. Aside from the great teachers and strong education, we really feel a kinship with the other families. It is such a welcoming, positive community. The faculty are amazing, our kids are always so excited for Monday mornings!

Outstanding for our daughters. We can not recommend Providence enough. From the teachers and staff to the fellow families of PA, it has been a great experience for our family. The small class size allows the teachers to get to know their students and tailor the curriculum to his/her needs. All of the teachers that we have had have gone above and beyond in teaching our girls. The most important part? The girls are excited to go learn!

I have had two students there for almost four years and would not change a thing. We have been through changes from Dominion to Providence, but only good things have occurred from these changes. Academics, teacher, and faculty have only gotten better with time. We have an amazing team of specials teachers who give to the kids above and beyond what anyone could imagine. If you decide to allow your kiddo to go to Providence there is an immediate feeling of belonging to a family. Nothing short of amazing.

Providence Academy is a school where Christ is present every single day. Of my 14 years of teaching experience, 7 of those have been spent with the most amazing, inspiring Christian teachers I have had the pleasure to know. Our school prides itself on small classes which allows teachers to teach to each individual child. With a close partnership with our parents we help every child achieve their individual goals. We engage the whole class in lessons that involve lively approaches to our rigorous curriculum. Providence Academy has such a strong sense of family. You can feel the joy coming from the classrooms as you walk our hallways. We love our students and celebrate their victories, both inside and outside the classroom. I am blessed to be part of this amazing community!
