Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Providence!

As you begin to explore our website, I hope the information is helpful to you. We know you are busy, so we did our best to tell our story as succinctly as possible. We want you to get to know us, and get to know us well. And that process begins here, on our website, but it would not be as complete without you setting up an appointment with our Admissions Office to learn more about our school and get the specific answers you are looking to find.

At Providence, we begin with the end in mind. Our mission is to “prepare students for lives of purpose, equipped with the knowledge, wisdom, and character found in God’s unchanging truth.” At Providence, we see pursuing truth, beauty, and excellence as essential to living a Christ-centered life:

  • Truth, as revealed by God through the Bible and his creation, provides the foundation on which knowledge and wisdom are built.
  • As a part of God’s creation, we recognize the Beauty in our world and the work of our maker; we strive to mirror that in our own endeavors.
  • Excellence originates in God’s character; therefore, we choose to offer God our very best, using our individual God-given gifts to further his work on earth.

We measure success by what a student becomes, not only by what he or she knows. We think excellent grades and test scores are important because they reflect our students’ effort and work ethic, not just their innate aptitude. But we also seek to foster academic skills and life skills—what we call the “habits of the mind”—that help them live purposeful and productive lives that glorify God and contribute to the good of their community.

Our faculty are experienced, master teachers who care deeply for their students. Our diligent teachers work long and hard to ensure Providence students are actively engaged in learning. They go the extra mile to make sure students feel supported—academically, spiritually and emotionally.

It is our privilege to host you online and we hope that you will find the information you need to take the next steps. We still have some limited openings in select grades, so I encourage you to contact our Admissions Office without delay if you wish to learn more about our school or if you would like to schedule a personal tour.

Wishing you and your family the very best!

Sincerely,

Soo Chang, M.Div.

Head of School
