Providence Day School: Inspiring a sense of social responsibility
At Providence Day, social responsibility means cultivating a sense of connection to our community and the world, and taking action to improve the lives of others. Social responsibility progresses throughout the curriculum in all grades, from activities that develop empathy and gratitude in Lower School; to a more participatory approach in Middle School; to problem-solving and innovation in Upper School and beyond.
Additionally, Providence Day remains the only independent school in the nation to host a Freedom School program each summer, and the community comes together to collect school supplies for all of Charlotte's 18 Freedom School sites year-round. Read more here.
