The Application Process
Providence Academy’s admission process is designed to admit qualified students who are capable of benefiting from the school’s college preparatory program and making a positive contribution to the school community. The Office of Admissions works to identify, attract and retain a diverse group of students who possess the following characteristics: intellectual curiosity, willingness to serve others and community with a Christ-centered heart, self-motivation and a solid work ethic, admirable character, special talents, and an enthusiasm for involvement in the school’s extra-curricular activities.
1. Attend a Patriot Preview
The Patriot Preview helps parents and students learn about what God is doing in the lives of students at Providence, how the University Model can work practically for your family, and how to take the next steps to becoming a Patriot! Both parents, if applicable, must participate in a Patriot Preview to be considered for admissions. We offer Lunch and Learn Patriot Previews intermittently as well as evening Patriot Previews generally monthly. Come learn about Providence and ask all your questions! Lunchtime sessions include a free lunch and optional tours of either campus.
Both in-person events will be held at the Patriot Collegiate Center (4801 W. Highland Knolls Rd. Suite 300, Rogers, 72758).
If you would prefer to view a virtual Patriot Preview, fill out the Request More Information form and request it under additional info.
