For your convenience, a checklist of all required documents is provided below:

Application Checklist  

 
  1. Research and Pray

    If offered admission to Providence, you will be required to sign a document indicating agreement with Providence's Statement of Faith. Please review our Statement of Faith to ensure there are no conflicts with your personal beliefs.

    Research what it means for your child to be educated with the Classical Methodology and what a University-Model® school will mean for you and your family. 

    Pray. Prayerfully consider your family’s needs for education and whether those needs would best be met through a partnership with Providence Preparatory Academy.
     

  2. Submit Admission Applications


    Families should submit ONE family application:

  3. Pay Application Fee

    A non-refundable application fee of $75 per family is due at the time of application submittal.

    Please write "Application Fee" in the memo line.

     

  4. Finalize Application

    This section outlines additional information you will be required to provide for admission to Providence.

    You can begin gathering this information now so you will have what you need when enrollment opens in January!

    You will have your pastor or a church leader close to you complete and submit a Pastoral Reference.

    Pastoral Reference Form

    For rising 1st grade and above, you will have the student's current teacher complete and submit the appropriate Student Evaluation Form. If your child is currently homeschooled, you will complete the form yourself. 
     

    Student Evaluation Forms:

    Rising 1st - 3rd Grade

    Rising 4th Grade and Above

     

    For rising 3rd graders and above, you will provide a copy of the most recent report card and standardized test results.

     
  5. Family Interview and Placement Screening

    Once the above steps have been completed, you will be contacted to schedule a family interview. We request that both parents and the applying student(s) attend the interview. If someone other than a parent will be teaching student(s) on the satellite days, they will also be required to attend the family interview. 

    The goal of this meeting is to ensure that the fit between your family and Providence Preparatory Academy is satisfactory so that this educational choice is a positive one for your family. Any final questions or concerns you may have will be addressed at this time. Placement screening will be administered at a later date.
