Providence opens the door to a community where students engage with teachers who are knowledgeable and passionate about their field of study, are well-trained in the art of teaching, and are compassionate and excited about the students they teach. Our teachers are committed to the Christian faith and hold themselves to high standards of thought, deed, and character. Providence is a place marked by goodness, an environment where students flourish as they seek truth, beauty, and excellence. We are excited about our upcoming merger with El Montecito School at San Roque. Both schools share the same commitment to developing students’ minds and shaping students’ hearts and we will only be better together. (To learn more about this July 1, 2018 merger, please see Better Together.)

Providence’s college preparatory curriculum develops students who think, write, and speak with growing depth, skill, and clarity; qualities essential to a competitive college admission process. Our classes challenge students to learn more about who they are, who God is, the world they live in, and the integration of all three.

What makes a school great is not brick and mortar, it is teachers and students. Providence teachers are committed to impacting the lives of those whom they teach through competitive academic scholarship and by modeling Christian conviction and character. Similarly, a Providence student is one who longs to be a part of a community committed to academic scholarship and to nurture and develop themselves intellectually, physically, and spiritually.

A Providence education is not merely a means to another end; it is an end in itself.  Our students are encouraged to become lifelong learners who seek after the virtues of truth, beauty, and excellence for their own sake; whether it’s in the classroom, on the basketball court, or under the glow of stage lights.

We would be honored to share Providence with you and I invite you to attend one of our admissions events and take the opportunity to see how Providence is making a difference in the lives of our students, who are, after all, our future!  We look forward to meeting you.
