I had two children graduate from Providence, both received academic scholarships to universities. They tell you at orientation that they are college prep and expect your students to excel academically. It is not the right choice for everyone. I have read comments that the school does not cater to ...  Read more

This school is mediocre at best. All they worry about is money. Seems like the families with money can get away with their child(ren) getting into trouble there. There is no leadership there.

Excellent school. Excellent acedemics with extremely caring, devoted teachers and staff. Wonderful, welcoming atmosphere as well. Catholic school tuition is not inexpensive, but PCHS is worth every penny.

My child graduated this past May . The choice to send them to Providence was the lesser of 2 evils. It cost sooo much money and the students were worse there than at public school. Most of the students parents had money (I did not). The students were not as a 'good Catholic' would be and the parents ...  Read more

My daughter graduated from Providence. I was very upset by the lack of caring for the not so smart students. The teachers could of cared less if my daughter made the grade. Lots of money spent for not alot of learning
