Admissions Process

Priority Consideration Deadline & Rolling Admissions

Applications are due on January 5th for priority consideration and all other steps must be completed by January 23rd for priority consideration for the 2023-24 school year.

All applications and materials submitted after the priority deadline are reviewed on a rolling basis as long as space remains available.  Once all required admissions steps have been taken, the Providence Academy Admissions Committee will review your admissions files and contact you with further information.

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 Admissions Associate, Mrs. Jenny Bruce, 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 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. Jenny Bruce, Providence Admissions Associate, to schedule an appointment by calling (763) 258-2502 or by sending her an email.
