From the Deans
Here at Providence, we fully embrace our designation of Pioneers as part of our Legacy from the Sisters of Providence.
Here at Providence, we fully embrace our designation of Pioneers as part of our Legacy from the Sisters of Providence. Those courageous women ventured across thousands of miles, persevering through countless obstacles and hardships, compelled to respond to the signs of the times in service to those who are poor and vulnerable. We hope to instill a similar sense of purpose, courage, and resilience in our Pioneer students.
We feel the same urgency in responding to the signs of the times to continually enhance our academics and co-curricular offerings to reflect the world our students inhabit. As Deans, we take a holistic view of student experience at Providence and work closely together to provide exceptional programs, resources, and opportunities to our students.
Students play a critical role in every arena of school life. We have students participate in demo lessons during the hiring process. We enlist the voice of student leaders to update our uniform policy. We survey students bi-annually on what courses they are most interested in learning and develop UC-approved courses based on their feedback. We empower our Pioneers to educate and uplift our community through our Student-Led Organizations and Clubs. These are just a few examples of how we embolden students to be co-creators of their learning experience, so they take ownership of their high school journey in a positive, proactive way.
Pioneers chart their own path; we are here to encourage and support their exploration and growth.
