From the Dean of Curriculum & Dean of Instruction
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 the 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 update and enhance our curriculum to reflect the world our students inhabit. It is my privilege to work with Department Chairs and the faculty at large to keep our curriculum relevant and meaningful. My other area of focus is student success, and I partner with our Counseling Department on ways we can improve the learning experience for our students.
Students also play an important 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 we regularly develop UC-approved courses based on their feedback. These are just a few examples of how we empower students as 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.
