Our dedicated teachers challenge students in grades 9 through 12 to think critically, creatively solve problems, appreciate the arts, communicate effectively, collaborate with peers, respect individual differences, and play competitively.
The Upper School curriculum is based on a course of study essential to a quality college preparatory education, along with elective courses designed to broaden and deepen the students' academic experiences. Diploma requirements are specifically established to provide each student with an education that combines breadth, depth and flexibility.
All Providence Day School students embrace a global mindset. Our global curriculum and a Global Studies Diploma program prepare students for today's highly interconnected world. Students in the Global Studies Diploma program take courses in international relations, select from a number of related electives, attend a variety of multicultural events, receive leadership training, and have the opportunity for international travel.
On the athletic field, on the stage, in clubs, and in the classroom, student leadership remains a central focus for the Upper School. The Upper School Honor Council, made up of teachers and primarily students, allows students voice and leadership on integrity related issues.
