Statement of Philosophy
Providence High School is a Catholic, college-preparatory, co-educational institution serving students of varied academic capabilities and from diverse religious, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. As a ministry of Providence Health & Services, Providence High School continues the educational heritage and vision of our founders, the Sisters of Providence. The school carries on the educational mission of the Church within the Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles. We participate in the total mission of the Church by proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus, by creating an environment of Christian community and by encouraging service to others.
Christ is the model of the total person we are seeking to develop. We are committed to providing an education that values each student as a unique individual with distinct abilities, insights and needs. Guided by these principles, we lead our students toward a responsible and God-centered life, preparing them for higher education, and life-long learning.
Providence High School offers a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum that includes Honors and Advanced Placement courses. Providence also offers three selective Focus Programs in the fields of health care, media, and technology. In addition, we have outstanding Athletics, Christian Service, and Visual and Performing Arts programs.
We encourage our students to make positive choices, to demonstrate personal responsibility, and to be involved in promoting human dignity. We share this responsibility with the Church, and the community and the families of our students, who are their primary educators.
Providence High School, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students of any gender, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.
Providence High School does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin.
