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.
