Academics are very strong, however, there is no room for developmental differences. If your child can keep up,great. If not, a developmentally normal child that is not on the front of the curve will be labeled detrimentally. Parent involvement is high.

Providence has an excellent balance of religion and academics with a great deal of parent involvement (voluntary, not forced!). There are a wide variety of extracurricular activities to choose from, and the sports programs have excelled in recent years. Compared to other private schools in town, this is the best deal tuition-wise.

Quality of academic programs is generally very high. Many sports and extracurricular activities available. Level of parent involvement is fairly high.

All of the subjects are taught from a biblical viewpoint or with biblical references. Advanced material presented but with large class size. Offer before and after school help sessions. Quite strict regarding uniforms and behavior. Not for the independently minded.

Parent of preschool and kindergarden boy. School is terrific...strong academics - 5 year old has homework which actually requires work at home. Teachers(3 for 3) are great - all sold, loving, Christ minded and nurturing. Would recommend this school highly.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
