A Providence education begins with a twenty-four course academic core in which students study the best of what has been thought, written, and said, with the goal of encouraging students to live a life of purposeful, God-glorifying engagement.
Our students choose a concentration from eight disciplines. These concentrations are purposely selected to enable them to pursue a calling in the service of God and others.
In their third and fourth years, Providence students branch out of the classrooms and participate in apprenticeships, internships, and experiential and study-abroad opportunities in preparation for their vocations beyond Providence.
The Avodah Program
Cross cultural immersion experiences
In order to equip students to effectively engage the diverse local and global community, Providence sponsors Avodah Experiences, which offer a holistic view of education giving practical application of theoretical teaching in the classroom through day trips and extended cross cultural immersion experiences. The purpose of the program is to understand kingdom service and culture — including the people, worldviews, artifacts, traditions and languages.
Witherspoon Honors Program
A unique scholarship opportunity
The Witherspoon Honors Program is a selective scholarship program that covers 75% of tuition and includes subsidized world travel. If you are an ambitious student with a track record of academic success, we encourage you to apply.
