PCS is a haven for truth pursuit. The faculty and staff are both highly qualified and sincerely interested in the students' growth in all areas. If you believe that your child should be trained to impact his or her culture for Christ, PCS will be a great choice for your family.

Providence Classical School is an amazing school. Their teaching methods, staff, and administration are exceptional. As the father of four sons I could not be more pleased with the way my children have been accepted into the Providence community and the way that they have flourished as a result. I thank God every day for bringing Providence into our lives. Not enough superlatives to list. Simply outstanding.

A fine, winsome Christian community, dedicated to training up a child to impact their culture for Christ. Academically rigorous, with parental involvement and engagement a necessary thing, and without the "games" that some other schools play, PCS is a fantastic school for parents and children looking to get the best from their school years.

Great School. Great Teacher. Excellent Education. New Campus coming soon due to overwhelming enrollment. You will wish you could go back to school and learn the classical way!

Providence has provided a wonderful Christian environment for my three children over the last 8 years. This place is filled with godly men and women who care about our childrens' spiritual walk while providing a rigorous academic environment as well. This school is like an extended family and has been one of the biggest blessings in our lives. Mr. Weichbrodt, our current Headmaster, has been a shining example of what is means to die to self and live for Christ. We are blessed to know him. I urge everyone who is considering a classical education for their children to visit Providence. You will not be disappointed.

Not a diverse school at all more needs to be done to offer more diversity for students to learn and be educated other students from diverse backgrounds.

We have been at PCS for 7 years with our 3 children, and in all of those years we have never had a bad experience. We have encountered many different teachers and teaching styles, but always at the center of this school is God. The classical model of grammar, logic, and rhetoric, and teaching kids using methods that are developmentally appropriate, all work together to mold children into people who love learning and want to impact their culture for Christ. I look forward to many more years here and recommend Providence on a regular basis.

I am delighted with the education my children have received at Providence. I am both a teacher and a parent at our school, and I have had the pleasure of watching my children progress through Providence starting in early grammar school. This past spring my older daughter graduated from Providence. I am confident the education she received has prepared her for college and beyond. The upper school faculty has been instrumental in helping to shape her Christian worldview, and she has been taught to think in a manner well beyond her years.

My husband and I were thrilled to find a classical school here. We were very impressed with the academics, culture, and environment at Providence, and almost everyone was friendly and helpful. We went through the process of interviewing, touring, filling out essays etc ( for a second grader). We were turned down. After questioning the decision to deny my son this wonderful education, we were told that we just didn't "fit". We weren't Christian enough. If you ask me, that wasn't a very Christian way to be treated. My husband is not a religious man so I was thrilled at the possibility of giving my son a positive Christian environment and having some backup. I would think a truly Christian organization would have leapt at the opportunity to make a real impact on a child for God. We are VERY involved in our sons education and school and volunteer all the time. It was a great loss for Providence when they turned us away for not fitting into their ideal vision of a Christian family. He now attends a private Catholic school that was all too eager to accept him, and us, and they welcome us into the community without prejudice. I gave three stars for the classical model of the school only.

Providence Classical School is a great choice if you are looking for an education for your children that will truly teach them to think for themselves and impact their world for Christ. The classical curriculum is taught by teachers who are passionate about their subject matter and instill in their students a love for learning (yes, even learning Latin). I appreciate that the school encourages parents to grow in their love for learning as well with educational opportunities throughout the school year. After five years of sending our three children to Providence, I am convinced that this education one of the best gifts we can give them.

Providence does Classical very well, wrapped in a Chrisian world view. Our experience has been with the Upper School mostly, and it is clear that students are taught to think, and the thesis presentation demonstrates that quite well. We are very pleased with this school, especially the community, although it's not perfect (no school is). It's clear that much is expected from the students and we can't complain about that. PCS brings out the best in our children.

Providence Classical School is the best decision we have ever made for our family. It is a high quality education and equips the kids beyond measure. The kids study classic literature (e.g., the Iliad, Odyssey, Shakespeare, etc.). They develop a true love of learning and respect for authority that is lacking in other schools we visited.

This is a valuable education. I am a Providence graduate, so I suppose this makes me a bit less objective than the parents who review on here. I am earning a bachelor's degree at a four-year university as are most of my graduating classmates. I started in seventh grade and graduated in 2011. I believe that the allegations of judgmental attitudes seen in some of the other reviews on this site are misleading. Perhaps this "judgment" is really a general disapproval of certain behaviors exhibited by some students. PCS is a Christian school, and the faculty make no apologies for Christian teaching that is not politically correct. Students are expected to act like Christians. I was challenged in every single subject I took. In my six years at Providence, I read countless great books - mostly in lieu of text books, experienced physical and leadership challenges on several of Providence's athletic teams, and wrote a 7,000-word thesis paper. But nothing I got from my classical education was as valuable as the passion for learning I gained as a result of attending Providence. Providence Classical School taught me to care about my education - both academic, moral, and spiritual.

I would proceed with caution enrolling in this school. The curriculum is spotty, especially in high school, and the attitude of the school's administration is one of arrogance and intolerance. We will not be returning next year.

I cannot recommend this school. Although there are many nice families who attend, the extreme judgmental nature of the school and intolerant teaching methods do not support a positive learning environment. The upper school in particular has a problems.

We never considered a private classical Christian education for our children, but once we visited the school and met with the Headmaster we knew this was the school for our family. We were unfamiliar with the classical model, but once we did our own research it made so much sense. We consider it a blessing to have found such an amazing school for our 3 children. Not only will our children be more than ready for college, they will be able to take a stand for Christ with confidence.

This is an excellent K-12 school using the Classical, Christian education model. It's the best education my children could have received to prepare them for college, not just academically, but as Christians to help them conquer the moral challenges in college. It's a rigorous curriculum, not for lazy students. The faculty holds a high, but loving, standard of discipline. The goal is always restoration. We consider the tuition an investment, considering the scholarships our college kids have received.
