Classical education is a method of teaching built on centuries of proven techniques that prepare students to become self directed learners who can think for themselves. In classical education, learning is structured according to the natural stages of child development. This enables students to gain knowledge, understanding, and wisdom at age appropriate stages as they progress through the curriculum. The results are simply phenomenal, with each grade at Providence Classical regularly scoring in the top 15 percent of standardized achievement tests.

School Reviews

5  
I discovered Providence just before it opened in its first year after attending an Open House that explained classical, Christian education. As an educator myself, I was astounded by what I witnessed during the demonstrations by students in a similar school nearby. The kids in elementary school had an amazing grasp of grammar and history. I brought my children to PCS because of the academics, (which did not disappoint), but we stayed because of the love and faith demonstrated by the staff. Although my children are past college age now, my love for this school keeps me involved.
