Always a Higher Purpose. Now a Better Value.
In 2018, Providence Academy took the lead in local private Pre-K through 12 education by reducing its tuition nearly 20% while maintaining the exceptional quality it is known for. A combination of extraordinary generosity, financial stewardship, and long-range vision had brought Providence to a position of strength that makes this possible.
As a Top 10 Private Pre-K through 12th Grade School in Minnesota, our tuition continues to to be incredibly competitve to comparable schools in the Twin Cities area.

Providence is committed to offering help to families in planning and making appropriate choices to afford tuition. Options include:
- A monthly tuition payment plan, enabling families to pay tuition over a ten month period without interest or penalty. Details of this new approach will be forthcoming in advance of enrollment.
- Grants and awards for families demonstrating financial need.
- Multiple-sibling discounts: 25% for a third and fourth child simultaneously enrolled, and a 50% discount for a fifth child or more simultaneously enrolled.
More than 40% of our students receive tuition assistance. In 2016-2017, PA awarded nearly $3.4 million in tuition assistance.
