Our thorough admissions process is designed to help you ascertain if Providence would be a good fit for your family’s needs and educational goals.
Note: For your application to be processed in time to begin on the first day of the 2020-2021 school year, please submit your application by July 15, 2020. Applications received after this date will be be considered for delayed enrollment, after school begins.
These 90 minute-long meetings are scheduled monthly (with varying days and times to accommodate each family’s schedule; see “Informational Meetings and Campus Tours” for dates, times, and location) and provide the best introduction to the school. Admission packets are only available to families who have attended an informational meeting. Childcare is not provided.
Read the admissions packets that include information on the classical approach, the blended model, and our philosophy of education. Prayerfully consider your family’s needs and educational goals and whether Providence could help you meet those goals. Additional resources you may want to consider as you learn about Providence are listed below. Please note that although these works as a whole have influenced our philosophy, we do not necessarily hold to each element of the authors’ ideas in the core values or practices of Providence.
Our application has two parts:
Parents: Please complete the top portion of the Teacher Questionnaire Form and give to your child’s current teacher. Ask that it be completed and returned directly to Providence Preparatory School.
