As a parent of a Providence Christian Academy student, you are critical to the life and community of our parent-sponsored school. As an extension of the Christian home, Providence’s philosophy of education is based on biblical principles like those found in Ephesians 6:4, which states that parents are to bring up their children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and in Deuteronomy 11:18-20, in which we are instructed to fix God’s words on our hearts and to teach them to our children.
According to the Scripture, the primary responsibility for education rests on the parents to whom children are entrusted by God. Parents accepting this covenantal responsibility to provide a distinctively Christian education for their children often seek to enlist other Christians to assist in this process. Therefore, Providence exists as an extension of the family to assist parents in the discipleship of their children to know Jesus Christ as Savior, and to think and act from a biblical worldview.
