In the summer of 2001, a group of parents learned about a new model of education in Texas. Three parents were sent to Arlington, Texas to learn more about the University-Model School® concept at a conference hosted by Grace Preparatory Academy. After returning from the conference, the founding families were convinced that God would establish this type of school in Northwest Arkansas, and they began praying for others to join them in the vision. As a result, four families joined together with the purpose of starting Providence Classical Christian Academy.

Providence Academy was founded in 2004 with 39 students in grades K-6th. The first campus was located at a small church in Rogers. Since that time, Providence has grown in enrollment to over 550 students in grades K-12 on two beautiful campuses with over 80,000 sq. ft. of education and athletic training facilities. God has continued to be faithful through all of the years Providence has existed. Enrollment continues to grow rapidly every year, making the academy one of the fastest growing private schools in Northwest Arkansas.

Providence Academy is recognized by peers for outstanding accomplishments in students’ achievements, parental involvement, curriculum, and providing a rich and robust Christ-centered, college-preparatory education.
