Providence Academy offers 25 sports to its male and female students. Most athletic facilities are located on campus including a new stadium, complete with turf field with a seasonal dome. In our brief 12-year history as a member of the Minnesota State High School League, Providence teams have won 33 conference championships, 19 section championships and four state titles. In addition seven individuals have claimed state championships. Providence Academy Athletics compete in the Independent Metro Athletic Conference. The conference is made up of 6 similar-sized private college preparatory independent schools in the metro area.
What sets Providence Academy athletics apart from other schools is the access students have to our programs. In a world of sport specialization and heavy competition, Providence boasts a 90% participation rate in the Upper School with many athletes competing in two or three sports. We strive to compete at the highest levels, but not at the expense of individuals’ ability to participate in our programs.
Providence Academy athletics reflect the mission of the school in its desire to instill faith, knowledge and virtue in student athletes. Our goal is to develop excellent Christian athletes who play to their potential, put forth maximum effort, seek their personal best and develop character that serves them well for life. The Providence Academy athlete and coach place academics before athletics, show respect for everyone and approach each contest as though God is the only spectator, accepting victory and defeat with equal grace. It is our belief that the experience of being an athlete at Providence Academy will enhance the character and virtue of all students at the school, and its reward will be lasting and lifelong.
