Academics at Providence Academy
At Providence Academy the Lower School and Middle School core knowledge curriculum specifies what content is taught from one year to the next and encourages mastery of skills based on content. The curriculum incorporates United States history, world history and geography, essential elements of math, science, art, music, oral and written expression, classic stories and poems. Phonics and traditional math instruction are among proven teaching methods applied in classrooms. Exposure to foreign languages is offered K-5, with Latin added in 6-7. Small classes ensure effective personalized attention.
