About Providence

denoudenJim Den Ouden

President 2005-2009

As founding president, Mr. Den Ouden was a tremendous visionary in drawing people and resources to the school’s five-acre campus in Ontario. Thanks to a lifetime of work in Christian day schools in Minnesota and California, Mr. Den Ouden and his wife Anne brought great experience and wisdom to the college as they served it in its earliest days.

Mr. Den Ouden hired the first staff and faculty members while working tirelessly to share the story of Providence with local supporters. Providence owes its initial establishment and growth to the Den Oudens.
