Welcome to Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Providence Classical School!

At the time my husband and I began contemplating educational choices for our three children, we didn’t know much, but we did know that we wanted the richest and most excellent education possible for them.  As we began to explore options, we learned about classical and Christian education, and we knew this was the answer for our family.  A Christ-centered education that would equip our children to think for themselves; to become the whole human beings that God intended them to be; and to be leaders in their families, churches, and communities – this was all we had been seeking and more!

If you would like to see this education in action, please come to visit our campus!  You will find our Grammar School students (grades PK through 6) immersed in the richness of history and literature and learning the foundational facts of math, science, English grammar, and Latin.  Our School of Logic students (grades 7 and 8) will be learning to formulate a logical, well-reasoned argument and solving lots of problems in their various classes.  And the School of Rhetoric students (grades 9 through 12) will be involved in the Great Conversation with authors from throughout the ages and honing their communication skills as they study math, science, Bible, writing, and foreign languages.  Throughout the school, you will find that Christ is central and students view all that they are studying through the lens of Scripture.

Please let us know how we can help you as you consider educational options for your child.  I would be delighted to meet you and give you a glimpse of a Providence education, where we are training students to impact their culture for Christ.

God’s blessings,

-Alicia Williamson
Director of Admissions
Application Process

Application Process

This is an overview of just some of the details we put into our student’s education. For more information please visit our campus for the full tour!

Applications for the 2019-2020 school year are now being accepted! The application deadline is February 1, 2019. All applications submitted by that date will receive priority consideration. Applications received after the deadline will only be considered for remaining openings or waitlists.

Pre-Kindergarten Application

Step 1:

Visit: The application process begins with a visit to the school.  There are two options for your visit: an individual meeting and tour with our Director of Admissions, or a school preview. The meeting will last about an hour and will include an overview of classical and Christian education, information about a Providence education, a facility tour, and classroom visits.  To schedule a meeting, please use the Request A Tour button at the top of this page. School previews are scheduled during the months of November, January, and February. At a school preview, you will have the opportunity to hear about a classical and Christian education from our headmaster, principals, and students in various grades. Teachers from each grade level will be available to talk with you about our program and you can tour our facilities. Please let us know if you are planning to attend a preview by contacting the Admissions Office.

Step 2:

Explore: In order to more fully understand classical and Christian education, please read the information included in your admissions packet.  We highly recommend you also begin reading books from our suggested reading list.

Step 3:

Apply: To apply, please complete the ADMISSIONS APPLICATION.  As part of the application, you will also need to submit a teacher referral from your child’s current teacher, a copy of the Parent-Student Handbook Agreement,  and the $160 application fee.

Step 4:

Assess: No individual academic assessment is required for children applying for pre-kindergarten. If the child is currently in school, the admissions director may schedule a school visit for observation.

Pre-Kindergarten applicants will be asked to come to school for a group interview. In the group interview, students will listen to a story read by one of our kindergarten teachers, then will work in centers (puzzles, blocks, etc.) with a small group of other applicants. During that time you will have the opportunity to hear from our Grammar School principal about our discipline policies at PCS.

Step 5:

Interview: Once you have completed steps one through four, we will contact you to schedule your family interview. Both parents, along with students applying for admission, will meet with members of our admissions committee (usually the admissions director, headmaster, grade level principal, and teacher) on a Tuesday afternoon for about forty-five minutes.  In the interview, the conversation will focus on four areas: understanding of classical and Christian education, commitment to academic excellence, a pursuit of biblical conflict resolution, and your spiritual journey.  Through the interview process, we wish to understand your family’s goals and priorities and do our best to see that your family will thrive as a part of the Providence

Providence F.A.Qs

How is Providence different from other schools?

Some Christian schools label themselves as such by merely including a Bible class in the curriculum.  At Providence Classical School, a Christian worldview permeates everything we do, teach, think, and say.  Biblical thinking is integrated into every subject.

How rigorous is the academic program?

Providence Classical School seeks to set standards of education that will stretch students to reach their full potential.  We are committed to a rigorous academic program that promotes intellectual excellence infused with spiritual fervor and Christian character.

Is Providence Classical School accredited?

Providence has been an accredited member of the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS) since 2006.  For more information on ACCS and the accrediting process, visit the ACCS website at www.accsedu.org.

Is Providence associated with a denomination or a local church?

Providence Classical School is an interdenominational school that is not affiliated with a particular church.  We strive to build a distinctively Christian institution committed to the Word of God as the sole authority for all walks and areas of life.

What are the requirements for teaching at Providence?

All Providence teachers must have at least a Bachelor’s degree.  Some teachers have education degrees; however, most have degrees in their areas of expertise.  All teachers must have a vibrant faith in Christ, a love for children, and a passion for their subject.  Intellectual curiosity and a passion for classical and Christian education are also essential.

How are teachers trained to teach classically?

New teachers at Providence attend regional classical teacher training courses.  In addition, all teachers progress through a formal professional development program, including reading requirements, faculty discussions, and classroom observations.

Why has Providence chosen to teach Latin?

PCS begins teaching Latin in the third grade and continues through the ninth grade because of its value for training the mind to think well.  Not only does Latin build students’ English vocabulary and grammar, it also strengthens the brain’s ability to process new concepts, particularly other modern languages.

Are fine arts programs available?

Yes, all students in kindergarten through 6th grade have both music and art classes each week.  Beginning in 7th grade, choir and art classes are available as electives.

What sports are offered?

In both middle school and high school, students may participate in cross country, basketball, track, golf, and tennis. We also offer volleyball for middle school and high school girls. PCS offers middle school and high school baseball teams.

What other extracurricular activities are offered?

Grammar school students may participate in Math Olympiad and Choir.  In the upper school, extracurricular activities include yearbook, student council, Science Olympiad and mock trial.

What is the House System?

The house system, based on the system used in British boarding schools, is used in the upper school to foster community and provide mentoring and leadership opportunities for students.  7th- through 12th-graders are divided into four houses: Dragon, Gryphon, Leviathan, and Phoenix.  House activities include an annual upper school retreat,  house games, and chapels and lunches together.

Providence At A Glance

This is an overview of just some of the details we put into our student’s education. For more information please visit our campus for the full tour!

School of Rhetoric Curriculum

The primary purpose of the PCS School of Rhetoric (9-12) is to stretch students to reach their full academic potential through a rigorous program of academic excellence and Christian perspective. Instead of the cafeteria approach in most textbooks, PCS emphasizes reading and research in source documents and original writings. By integrating history, literature, philosophy, theology, art, and music throughout all disciplines, our students see the world as a whole and as a work of art, rather than as a disjointed groups of facts.

In their Humanities courses, students study the thoughts, events, people, literature, geography, and arts that shaped the mindset of that time. Students begin studying Latin in 3rd grade, progressing through a complete study of Latin grammar that culminates in a year of translation from source texts in 9th grade. Thereafter, students continue with at least two more years of language study in either Latin or Spanish.

Our accelerated math and science curriculum for all students includes Algebra I and II, Geometry, and Precalculus or College Algebra. Many students take Calculus. All students take Physics, Biology, and Chemistry. Many take Physics II or Anatomy and Physiology. PCS believes it is critical to train students in how to reason, to understand arguments, and to communicate effectively. As part of this training, students take Logic as their science course in 8th grade.

The culmination of a PCS education is a two-year course in formal Rhetoric, in which students are trained to effectively articulate the knowledge they have mastered through the writing, oral presentation, and defense of a senior thesis project before a panel of faculty and local professionals.

Our Vision

Founded in 1999, Providence Classical School (PCS) is an independent, co-educational, PreK-12 day school that offers a classical and Christian education. Our classical method is rooted in the Trivium: the grammar, logic, and rhetoric of all subjects.  Students trained in these disciplines are equipped with the tools necessary for effective accumulation, synthesis, and presentation of knowledge. PCS students acquire a love for learning, since the Trivium allows students to be trained according to their stages of development.

Our Faculty

The student/faculty ratio is 10:1. All PCS faculty members hold college degrees, most in their field of instruction, and many have advanced degrees. PCS is committed to hiring and retaining exceptional teachers who have a passion for Christ, their students, and their subjects.
