I want to write a good review. I do. I have no doubt that one day this school will be amazing--one day. The new leadership is super. The staff is caring. The class size is small. However, they are definitely not there yet in terms of academic excellence. A WHOLE LOT of worksheets come home for the tuition we pay. Not much original student work, writing, exposure to literature, critical thinking, experimentation, etc. At least not in the class that our daughter is in (younger classes). May be different in other classed. She is doing well and likes her teachers, but we don't see a whole lot that would set Providence apart from the local Loudoun County schools....Sorry. I think the leadership is focused on growing the school--understandable--rather than the teaching/academic program. We will be sending our daughter to the local elementary school in our district next year which is rated quite high. I do wish Providence luck though, as i said, I hoped for a better experience and wish the school well.
Unparalleled commitment from staff, teachers and parents at Providence. We love this school and the curriculum. It is absolutely worth the financial investment. Only 16 kids in our 1st grader's class --compared to ~30 students/class in the public school. Despite all rave reviews for the Loudoun County Public School system, please remember at the end of the day it is a public school. I've talked with teachers at LCPS. Comparing LCPS to Providence is akin to comparing night to day.
The best teachers around. Both of our kids have had an amazing experience, and are reading/learning at an amazing pace. The curriculum is challenging, but the small class sizes really allow the teachers to tailor the material for every child. The community of staff, teachers, and parents really treat us like family! We couldn't recommend it more highly.
We have love Providence Academy! The teachers and the staff are amazing and so wonderful with the children. They challenge and nurture the children at the same time. Our aon loves it!
This is a school which is on its way to becoming the premier private school in Loudoun County. Led by a new and very talented and knowledgeable principal, Providence Academy offers an excellent program geared to challenge all students, especially highly motivated and highly "gifted" achieving ones. Small classes combined with exceptionally high academic standards and solid moral teachings give children the best of both worlds As this is a Christian school, Bible studies and prayers take place daily along with respect, responsibility, manners, kindness and caring for others, and the students demonstrate what they've learned through chapel programs, assemblies, and enumerable public presentations. . Uniforms are attractive, neat and easily obtained. Teachers are organized, motivated, and very caring of the students. They are also carefully screened to teach and carry out the policies of the school with enthusiasm. Parents are encouraged to volunteer and are a vital part of the school. Prospective parents should know that this school is light years superior to the public schools in Loudoun County,(and most private) and well worth the driving and the modest tuition.
We love this school. High standard of excellence and a nurturing learning environment. A rare combination.
