The Mission of Providence Christian Academy
is to provide excellence in Christ-centered education as an extension of the Christian home.
Admiring the faith of young people willing to enter a new, untested Christian school for their crucial senior year, the first Board of Directors entrusted the class of 1992 with naming the school. Those nineteen students wisely chose an expressive identity. Our name is Providence Christian Academy. A bold proclamation of conviction. A confident claim of God’s favor.
Ever since the opening of the school on Sept. 6, 1991, with 354 students in grades K-12, members of the Providence family expected the hand of God to be at work in our midst.
From our modest beginning of leasing just two thirds of a shopping plaza, our one-building facility has developed into a campus encompassing nearly 200,000 square feet of indoor space on 35 acres, and an enrollment of over 650 students. Our innovative use of space includes separate facilities for High School, Elementary, Gymnasiums, and Athletic Fields. In 2009, Providence purchased 11 acres located behind the current site that has been developed into the Lamar Lussi Athletic Complex complete with a multipurpose soccer/football field, track, six tennis courts and a softball field.
Providence has achieved much more than growth in size and number. From earning accreditation by the Georgia Accrediting Commission, dual accreditation with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools/Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI) and the Association of Christian School International (ACSI), Providence continues to strive toward providing Christian families with excellence in education.
More over, students at Providence have consistently earned state championships for achievements from athletics to science, and numerous fine art accolades from All-State Chorus, Orchestra, and Art, to “Best in Cast,” Shuler Awards and other individual drama awards.
Finally, the school has maintained the vision of its founders. High standards of academic achievement and spiritual growth, opportunities for personal growth through athletics and fine art programs, in addition to moral development through Christian education and community service – all continue to be hallmarks of Providence Christian Academy.
