As a Providence graduate I have always believed that the education I received prepared me academically and morally for the future. I have many cousins who were Providence women, and now have my younger daughter attending as well.
Excellent school. Great teachers and staff. My daugther is really happy there.
Provets are awesome! We made the right choice with Providence for a great education and great friends and family.
I love Providence because it academically challenges my daughter as to where in public school she would just do enough to get by. The friendships that she had made over the past year have been very good the young ladies at Providence build a bond that stay with them, they don't forget about each other and someone to always there to lend a helping hand. The staff are the best I have ever come in contacted with. You have find teachers like the ones at Providence they care for these young ladies as if each and everyone of them were one of their very own. Alicia Martinez
Allows young women in our area the chance to reach their goals in a very positive atmosphere.
It is my favorite school, I've been too, the teachers and students are great, they make me feel comfortable
I attended there and value the girls only high school for my recognition of the deeper values of life, and the opportunity for leadership training for young women
This is the first year that our daughter was anxious to return to school. She had a wonderful summer but missed her friends and teachers, yes - I wrote teachers. Providence truly is a wonderful place for young women - challenging curriculum and empowering enviroment! Give your daughter the Providence advantage, it is worth it!
Although my daughter left her senior year to go to a public school. (She wanted to be in the top 10% so she can get into UT) she had met life long friends at Providence. In fact every so often several Provets get together and just chat. Providence not only has prepared my daughter for UT, but also to cherish her friends from Providence.
Providene High School is the best kept secret in San Antonio Texas. It's college work and ethic at a high school setting. The traditions and school spirit at PHS are incredible and the pride of being a 'Provet' is passed down through each class. I sent my oldest daughter to the other all- girls school in San Antonio, and she did not like it at all. She and her younger sister then went to Providence and found that it suited them better. I would honestly say that it is the better of the two all-girls schools in San Antonio, with all due respect to that other school. The staff truly cares about your daughters and they empower her to succed in a superior male society. When you walk through the front doors, you feel at home. Everyone here is truly a big family.
I attribute my success in college to my years at Providence. While I was in high school I longed to go to public school but as an adult I realize I wouldn't have developed such a strong foundation anywhere else. I now thank my parents for shelling out the extra cash to send me there.
As an alumni of Providence High School I can assure any student or parent that the experience and education of an all female school is definetly worth the tution and time. I loved the small classroom size, the personal attention I received from the fantastic faculty and the positive values that were instilled in every student that are carried until and after graduation. As a soon to be college graduate and a prospective medical student I am forever grateful for my parents for sending me to such a great school.
A great education in a great environment. Small classes with lots of individual attention given to each student. A well rounded academic curriculum with experienced teachers who have life experience. (Living abroad, etc.) Limited honors/advanced courses available unless taken at Central Catholic HS. There are a number of extracurricular activities available for those intersted in sports but a limited selection for those interested in other things; drama, art, music etc. While they are offered, the extent and resources dedicated to these other programs is not as great.
Providence offers great academic programs. The teachers are very helpful and are available to tutor. My daughter started Providence as a freshman on an academic probation. She was able to learn and improve her grades to be removed from probation with the first 4 months. She is now a junior and is in honor roll. The study skills that she learned while a freshman have helped to continue to succeed and maintain her grades. Providence also offers many extracurricular activities, including sports, music and art. My daughter enjoys art and has been pleased with her teacher. Parents are involved. There is communication between the parents, faculty and administration.
