Admission Process

First Step: Experience Providence Academy

Request more information, visit our campus, connect with our Admissions Team, and explore the the many opportunities Providence Academy can offer your family. 

Request an Information Packet
If you are still early in your journey, requesting an information packet is a great opportunity to learn more about Providence and discuss opportunities with your family at home.  You may request an information packet through our Enrollment Coordinator, Mrs. Susan Truax, by calling (763) 258-2502 or by sending her an email.

Attend an Admissions Event
Providence offers various opportunities throughout the year to attend an admissions event.  Families at any point in the application process are encouraged to attend an event as they offer an opportunity to tour our campus, speak with students and parents, and discuss opportunities with our faculty and staff.

Schedule a Personal Tour 
For families who would like to experience a more personalized introduction to Providence Academy, we offer private tours daily.  This opportunity allows your family to get all of your questions about Providence answered in a more intimate environment while also having a chance to see Providence.

You may contact Mrs. Susan Truax, Providence Enrollment Coordinator, to schedule an appointment by calling (763) 258-2502 or by sending her an email.

Experience a Day at Providence
Students entering Kindergarten through 12 grade are encouraged to experience a day in the shoes of a Providence student by signing up for a Shadow Day.  Each visit is personalized to your student to ensure that he or she is paired with a student with similar interests as well as a class schedule that suits the types of class he or she may be most interested in.  

Shadow Days may be schedule by contacting our Day Visit Coordinator, Mrs. Sally Nathe, by email or by calling (763) 258-2561

Please note that, due to COVID-19, a Shadow Day may not be possible.  However, we will still do our best to make a Shadow Day possible for your student if it can be done safely.
