School Notes

  • Providence Academy was established as a private Christian school committed to providing a classical and biblically-based education to young people in primary and secondary grade levels. Education at Providence Academy is intended to be inherently different in philosophy and content from the education offered in state schools. We strive to operate as an extension of the family under the assumption that the education of young people is the responsibility of parents and their immediate family rather than the responsibility of the state. PA provides a biblically-based curriculum and teaches all subjects as parts of an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center.
