Welcome from the Head of School

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

– Jeremiah 29:11

Welcome to Providence Christian Academy (PCA). Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and consider PCA in your educational plans.

The value and impact of an extraordinary education is the most important investment any parent can make in their children. We are confident that Providence Christian Academy provides the incredible experience you are seeking. Central to our existence is a mission – a window into the vision we embrace: Teaching God’s truth and equipping our students with the tools for a lifetime of learning. Within those words exist an intentional method of teaching and learning that is based on being both classical (please see the information on the website that provides an overview of classical education) and Christian.

We know that you are seeking something special for your children’s education. And you are looking for the right fit for your family. At PCA we admit students but our relationship with your family is deep and includes partnering with you as well. That is a hallmark of the PCA experience and an expectation that you should have.

While there are many facets to the PCA experience, our focus is on the relationship between teacher and student. It is here where something powerful takes place. Our faculty are committed to the success of your student and dedicated to achieving excellence in every aspect of instruction. But the PCA experience is so much more. Numerous events including weekly chapel, special programs and activities, and athletic competition are what make PCA special.

The website is designed to guide you through the admissions process, answer questions, and give additional insight to what you can expect from PCA. We invite you to explore the website, contact us with questions, and schedule a tour. As in the passage from Jeremiah, our desire is in creating a plan for you and your student – a plan to give you hope and a future.

With gratitude,
