Our Services

Providence seeks to prepare students to live, work, and serve according to the call that God has for their lives. Whether this includes the pursuit of a higher education or not, we desire to assist students in identifying aptitudes, interests, and opportunities which will help them grow beyond their high school years.

Of course, a Providence education will prepare students for success in college, and for those students who chose to pursue it, we offer several services to help them research colleges and majors, and to assist them with the college application process.

  • College information nights. Twice a year we host information packed college seminars. These seminars are geared for sophomores through seniors and their parents, but are open to any families interested in learning more about the college application and scholarship process.
  • Personal consultations. You may set up a personal consultation with the Dean at your convenience. He will be happy to assist you throughout every phase, from college selection and application, to financial aid and scholarship applications.
  • College Representative Visits. Throughout the year Providence hosts representatives from various colleges. Watch the school calendar for the next visit, parents and students are welcome.
