Why Providence Classical Christian Academy?
Providence Classical Christian Academy is a non-denominational K-12 school in St. Louis County, MO. As the name suggests, Providence provides a classical, Christian education to its students. The school is accredited by the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI), an accreditation division of AdvancED. Providence is a member of both the Association of Classical and Christian Schools and the American Classical League.
Providence Classical Christian Academy (Providence) opened its doors in September 1994 with seven students, two classrooms, one office, and five part-time teachers. Under the direction of the three founders, Providence would become the first classical Christian school in St. Louis.
In 2001 the school moved to its current location on South Lindbergh in St. Louis County, Missouri. Providence leases space from Christ Community Church, the owners of the building.
Providence has grown to 136 students, including 50 in the upper school. The organization includes more than twenty faculty, five staff members and seven board members. The current administrators, Jonathan Mattull, Headmaster; Patrick Egan, Dean of the Upper School, and Mrs. Keri Stoner, Dean of the Grammar School continue the vision of a well-rounded classical Christian school that the founders began.
While Providence graduates consistently score well above average on college testing and attend the colleges of their choice, more importantly they enter the world with a thorough biblical worldview, understanding the sovereign work of God in all things.
