Characteristics of Professional Excellence

The Providence Preparatory School faculty commit to the following characteristics of excellent educators as the foundation of our vision to promote a Christian, Classical, and Collaborative learning environment.

List of 3 items.

  • Christian

    Deut. 6:5-7 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.”

    The teacher upholds the Bible and the Christian worldview as the ultimate source of knowledge, goodness, beauty, and truth. When relevant, the teacher guides students towards relating each subject or lesson to God’s truth and examples in scripture. 

    The teacher actively seeks personal spiritual growth and encourages spiritual growth in the lives of students. 

    The teacher values teaching as a calling for which he or she has been equipped by God, approaching educational opportunities with enthusiasm and awe, maintaining good stewardship of educational time, and impressing upon students a reverence for education that lays the foundation for lifelong learning.
  • Classical

    Psalm 78:2-4 “I will teach you hidden lessons from our past – stories we have heard and known, stories our ancestors handed down to us. We will not hide these truths from our children; we will tell the next generation about the glorious deeds of the Lord, about His power and His mighty wonders.”
    The teacher emphasizes and models virtue, shaping instruction, assessment, and discipline with the goal of promoting virtuous character in students as well as a love for beauty, goodness, and truth.

    The teacher regards students as godly image-bearers, consistently demonstrating regard for individual students in relation to dignity, learning styles, and unique abilities.

    The teacher honors the trivium by helping the student develop his memory, reasoning, and ability to express ideas as the lesson at hand indicates.

    The teacher seeks out opportunities to grow in knowledge of subject, classical pedagogy, and the liberal arts, modeling a self-motivated reverence for life-long learning. The teacher designs lesson plans and activities that encourage this same inquisitiveness and love of learning in students.
  • Collaborative

    Proverbs 22:6 “Train up a child in the way he should go; and when he is old he will not depart from it.”

    The teacher honors the parent/co-teacher model, upholding the parent as spiritual authority and primary educator of the student and the moral pulse of the home.

    The teacher demonstrates proactive, two-way communication between parents, students, colleagues, and administration. Communication is consistently related in clear terms on lesson plans, assessments, assignments, email communications, and in class.

    The teacher approaches the collaborative nature of lesson planning and curriculum design with an open mind and a willingness to collaborate with colleagues and administration with humility, creativity, and excitement. 

    The teacher upholds and promotes the positive morale of the school community, seeking opportunities to engage with activities outside of the classroom and grade level.

    The teacher wholeheartedly and actively supports administrative leadership and decisions.
