Providence Day strives to create well-rounded citizens
Providence Day School wants to ensure it’s the premier TK-12 independent, college preparatory school in the area.
That’s why the campus is continuing to grow through its Charging Forward campaign, which will include an innovative four-story academic center, a family gateway center and two-story parking deck.
The academic center will feature teacher learning space, classrooms, a lecture theater that will hold at least 160 students, a new café facility and a new school store.
The school has a strong commitment to global education and teaching students to become global citizens, which includes learning about other cultures; acquiring skills, such as collaboration and critical thinking; and applying that knowledge with good judgment.
Academic excellence is a key characteristic of Providence Day, but just as important are personal integrity and social responsibility to the school’s culture.
Providence Day also has a strong integration of technology, with access to a makerspace, laser cutter, 3D printers, computer labs, document cameras, SMART boards and an integrated digital curriculum. Arts also are important to the school through many offerings, as well as an Artist in Residence program.
The school’s enrollment of 1,600 students. Class sizes average about 18 students in middle and upper school.
Over the past five years, Providence Day has had 44 National Merit finalists and 46 commended scholars. The 2016 Advanced Placement exams produced 55 AP Scholars, 51 AP Scholars with Honor, 92 AP Scholars with Distinction and 15 National AP Scholars.
