University Model Schools International (UMSI)
Providence Preparatory Academy is a member of the University Model Schools International (UMSI, formerly known as the National Association of Univeristy Model Schools). UMSI was established in July of 2002 for the purpose of implementing new schools and supporting existing ones. Its mission is to share the vision of the UMS with Christian families around the world. The vision of the University-Model School® is to strengthen America's families and values by helping parents prepare college-worthy, character witnesses of Christ for the next generation. To assure the public the quality it is entitled to when it encounters a University-Model School®, the name was trademarked by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 2003. Only schools that are members of UMSI can use the trademark and call themselves “University-Model Schools®.” UMSI., corporately accredited by AdvancED, holds member schools accountable for providing quality instructional programs through UMS Certification and AdvancED Accreditation. Only official University-Model Schools® that are certified members of UMSI are entitled to this endorsement and credibility.
