Visit Providence

There is no better way to get to know a community than to experience it firsthand. We provide families with several opportunities to visit our campuses. Drop in for a Thursday morning tour, schedule an individual campus visit, or attend any and all admission information events.



Campus Locations

We are located on two campuses, both in the heart of Santa Barbara. They are just three miles apart; an easy 10-minute drive.

  • Our San Roque campus, located at 3225 Calle Pinon, serves Preschool–Grade 6.
  • Our downtown campus, located at 630 E. Canon Perdido Street, serves Grades 7–12.

Scheduled Individual and Family Visits
Providence is pleased to create a visit to fit your family’s schedule and needs. You will be provided with a student-led tour, a classroom visit, and an opportunity to ask questions and have a conversation with an admissions director and division principal, who can provide a personalized educational consultation for your child. If time allows, students may stay to “shadow” a Providence student throughout the day for a real-time look inside our school. 

Please contact the appropriate admission director listed at the right who will be happy to schedule a family campus visit to suit your needs.


Shadow Day
Be a Providence student for a day! Join other interested students in a day designed to provide a Providence experience for you. The day begins with a welcome from the head of school or division principal and the admission director. Then, you become a Providence student for a day by attending classes, sharing a meal, and meeting with teachers and coaches (for the middle and upper school divisions). High school students can speak with the college counselor to learn how Providence students are coached and prepared for the college application process. At the same time, you will learn of the impressive college acceptance rates of Providence students.

Please contact the appropriate admission director listed at the right to schedule a Shadow Day.


Open Houses 
Parents, grandparents, and students are invited to “Experience Providence.” You will be provided opportunities to meet with faculty, current students, parents, and recent alums. Mini-sessions on academics, the integration of faith in the curriculum, extra-curricular activities, fine arts, athletics, and admission and tuition assistance will be provided. 

Please visit our calendar to see upcoming admission events and call or email one of the admission directors listed at right to let us know you will attend. We look forward to seeing you at one of these events!
