About Us

Task Force News

As the faculty and staff of Providence High School, it is our ongoing commitment to respond to the signs of the times. We are called to respond to the needs of our students and community as they arise and to respond with compassion, dignity, justice, excellence, and integrity. We have instituted three taskforces. Although it is not a requirement to participate on a taskforce, we invite any faculty or staff member interested to join one of the three taskforces. Each taskforce has specific responsibilities and a call to action. Although we do not know all of the answers, these larger issues need to be addressed through a collaborative approach in conjunction with our students and in a way that is most fitting for Providence High School.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

Our school’s motto You Belong Here is more than a motto…it is a commitment. This taskforce invites community members to focus intentionally on topics of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging at Providence High School.

Enviromental Sustainablity

We are inspired by our mission to serve the poor and vulnerable, with the earth being the most vulnerable of God’s creations. Our community has a responsibility to consider ways to minimize our impact on the environment. This is a call for Providence to discern the most effective ways of supporting environmentally sustainable practices.
