Our Core Values
The core values of a Covenant-Christian school are its distinguishing characteristic. Sadly, in our day, the values of secular schools are too often diametrically opposed to the values of Christian parents and students. The core values of Providence Christan Academy can be expressed as follows:
1. A Dependence on the Providence of God
Providence Christian Academy acknowledges its complete dependence upon the providence of God. Jesus taught that, apart from Him, we can do nothing (John 15:5). Yet, we take courage and confidence from the promise that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).
2. A Firm Reliance Upon the Holy Spirit
Prior to His ascension, Jesus Christ promised that He would send the Spirit of Truth who would be our guide into all truth (John16:13). Providence Christian Academy acknowledges our reliance upon the Holy Spirit to accomplish his will in the lives of our students, parents, faculty, and staff.
3. The Glory of Christ as Our End and Aim
The purpose of education is to enable us to know and glorify God. Providence Christian Academy prayerfully seeks to glorify Christ in all that we do and to set that example before out students, exhorting them to do likewise.
4. Biblical Fidelity
All truth is Gods truth. Therefore, the curricula and learning resources used at Providence Christian Academy are carefully selected from those that support, and are based upon, Gods revelation of Himself in His written Word.
5. A Commitment to Excellence
Providence Christian Academy strives for excellence in all things and all things to Gods glory. This is reflected in our faculty and staff, as well as in our curricula and programs.
6. A Sacred Trust
Providence Christian Academy recognizes that Christian parents entrust their beloved children to us with the expectation that their children will grow in knowledge and grace and progress in their education and training in a safe learning environment.
A successful Christian academic institution must have high expectations for every constituent in its faith community…
According to the Scriptures, the responsibility of educating Christian children rests with their parents. Wise parents often will seek help in that process. Enrolling children in a Christian school, then, becomes a kind partnership wherein the school and the parent work together to ensure the success of the student. Providence Christian Academy believes an involved parent is a critical factor necessary to help ensure a successful academic career.
Students enrolling at Providence Christian Academy can expect to find a positive, creative, and encouraging learning environment. Students are expected to strive for excellence in their academic and extracurricular pursuits, conducting themselves in a way that honors Christ.
Faculty & Staff Expectations
The faculty and staff of Providence Christian Academy are dedicated to the educational and spiritual welfare of students, striving to help every child succeed. At the same time, the faculty and staff have very high expectations for students, expecting them to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with their Christian faith, being respectful of other students, teachers and staff.
Providence Christian Academy is blessed with visionary donors (many of whom are also parents) who understand that the cost of providing a quality Christian education is only partially covered by tuition and fees. Our donor partners enable the expansion and improvement of our instructional programs and facilities.
