Mission & Core Values
Providence Day School exists to inspire in its students a passion for learning, a commitment to personal integrity, and a sense of social responsibility.
We believe the school community should promote global awareness and connections to the world and local community.
We believe that students should be astute thinkers and persistent, creative problem solvers.
We believe the school community should maximize individual potential by encouraging new endeavors and risk-taking without fear of failure.
We believe that teachers are a significant influence on the lives of our students; therefore, we exercise great care in selecting faculty members. In addition to demonstrating excellence in their fields of instruction, they must love working with students.
We believe that students should enjoy the right to express themselves in a way that shows respect for others and honors the spirit of the school community.
We believe that the success of our students depends on a partnership which includes teachers, parents, administrators, support staff, grandparents, alumni and friends. We encourage the extended school family to be active in each student's development. Parents should expect that their involvement will make a difference.
We believe in developing within our students an ability to appreciate and value the differences among people in our school community, as well as those in the larger world around us.
We believe in the value of personal honesty as the foundation in the preparation of students to become responsible citizens and leaders.
We believe that the purpose of athletic activities is to promote physical vigor, teamwork, school spirit, sportsmanship and a sense of personal accomplishment.
We believe that non-athletic activities enable students to discover new talents, contribute to a group effort, gain self-confidence and develop leadership skills.
We believe that responsible and thoughtful management of the school's financial and human resources is essential to accomplishing our mission.
