    I was interested in a faith-based school with a strong emphasis on academic excellence for my Kindergartener many years ago. What I did not realize then was how much I would appreciate the faith and virtue component of PA's faith, knowledge, virtue motto. Through my child's years at PA the academic excellence definitely helped prepare her for higher education, yet the virtue component and the loving PA community helped to prepare her for the world! I truly appreciate so many aspects of the school, all the way from being in the same school setting for 13 years and having a school nurse on staff full-time to offering a safe and clean environment. Many times, I wish I could have been a student at PA!

    Moving our kids from public school to Providence was, by far, one of the best decisions we've made. The large class sizes and lack of discipline in the public system was making learning very difficult for our oldest. Once we moved to Providence, we saw her true potential emerge and it was wonderful! I am very thankful for this school and feel blessed that we can send our children here. The teachers are amazing and the environment is one that brings out the best in our kids!
    Providence Academy is one of the best decisions we have ever made. From the faculty to the facilities to the parent community, we are absolutely in love. Our daughters differ in terms of their academic interest, strengths and personalities and we have seen both thrive. We will continue to be an active participant of this community and give back however we can to the school that has given us so much. I would also be remiss if I didn't mention that we also value the diversity the school embodies in the children that attend and the focus on virtue. I've never seen a school where the kids, faculty and parents are so actively working toward being the best versions of themselves. Kids holding doors open for one another, going above and beyond to show they care about one another and getting personal birthday cards from the school leadership. It's amazing and truly a school like no other.
