Providence High School is a Catholic, nationally recognized, accredited, college preparatory school for young men and women.
Our goal is to develop each student to his / her fullest potential as a leader, a responsible citizen of the world, who is imbued with a strong set of moral values, a sense of service and a love of learning.
Founded by the Sisters of Providence in 1955, the school is located in Burbank across from Disney Studios in the San Fernando Valley, serving the greater Los Angeles area.
We work in collaboration with the parents who are acknowledged as the primary educators of their sons and daughters.
We begin our work with the belief that each student is essentially good and infinitely lovable.
Guided by our Catholic tradition, we recognize Jesus Christ as the model of the total person we are seeking to develop. In our mission of education, we strive for academic excellence and the total development of the individual.
