The new I 494 billboard captures the spirit of our school Code: “Providence Academy accepts the governance of moral and civil law. We are a community of individuals who respect the good in each of God’s children, in our thoughts, our words, and our actions. We recognize rightful authority. We speak truthfully. We are honest in our work and in our dealings with others. We are compassionate, gracious, and courteous to all. We aspire to be citizens who honor God, country and neighbor.” I might add to this our policy that we dress and present ourselves as “clean, neat, and modest.” While each of us certainly can fall short of high expectations at times, it’s important to be guided by true principle: the dignity of each person, created uniquely and unrepeatably in the image and likeness of God. To treat ourselves and others as our dignity requires is a matter of decency. Here, we are devoted to it.
