Why Providence High School

We have identified a significant need in our community to serve students who have struggled to achieve academic success in traditional High Schools. At PHS, we have small classroom sizes, which means giving our students one-on-one time. All students have unique challenges they need to overcome. However, our curriculum and expertise concentrate on developing and strengthening students through a holistic, trauma-informed approach.

The curriculum at PHS concentrates on engaging students by activating critical thinking, communication, and collaboration skills in a real-world context.
