COVID Update
We currently have one Covid-19 positive case. Please partner with us and have your student arrive at school with their mask every day.  Please keep one in their backpack as a backup. Be sure to send an email to notify the school that a 6th-12th grade student is attending virtual learning by 7:30 am to nurses, teachers, and attendance. Students may not attend virtually for partial days.

We have implemented a new policy when students have 3 consecutive absences/virtual attendance. The student will now be required to provide a doctor’s note to return after 3 days of virtual attendance or absence. Doctor’s notes are STILL required when your child arrives late to school due to an appointment per our student handbook. We appreciate your partnership and we are praying for all of those who have been affected by COVID-19.  Covid-19 Info Webpage

4th Grade Visits The Zoo
The 4th grade students and their parents explored the Jacksonville Zoo on Friday, March 26th. The students participated in a Wild Florida educational program. They explored the unique diversity we have in our own backyards. In this class the students learned about the native and invasive species that call Florida home. The rest of the time was spent walking around the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, the only walking safari in Northeast Florida. The students had a great time enjoying God’s creations and spending time with their friends.

4th Grade Wax Museum
Over the last few weeks, the 4th Grade students were  busy working on a biography research project on a famous historical figure. Students research a person, write a biography report, and “be” the person in a living wax museum. The culminating part of this project is an amazing Wax Museum where students dress up as the person they have learned about and stand still, like a Wax Museum, until someone walks up to them and presses their button.  Due to COVID-19, we were unable to do this in person but are creating a video instead. The video will be finished soon. Learn More.

Middle & High School

2021 Junior Senior Prom
The Junior-Senior Prom is tomorrow night and as always, our students safety is our primary concern. Due to COVID-19, the administration has asked that students ride together in smaller groups and are not permitting outside guests.  In addition, students were required to send a list of who they were riding with and in what vehicle last month for contact tracing purposes. Masks are required at the prom and it will be an outdoor event at the Florida Yacht Club.  We are thankful to be able to host a Prom this year.  Thank you for your cooperation. 

Upper School Chapel
Pastor Joby Martin, Providence parent and Lead Pastor of the Church of Eleven22 spoke to the students about God’s forgiveness and love. In his message, he specifically references the relationship with God as our heavenly Father, a dad who loves us with an indescribable love and how He wants a deeper relationship with us.

Providence Football Needs Your Help!
The impact “Friday Night Lights” and a strong football program has on a school positively changes the overall culture and climate. It gives a school and community a sense of pride, camaraderie and builds tradition. In 2019 our Stallion Football Team won the First Coast Division Championship. We are proud to have been a playoff team the last 2 seasons.  The class of 2021 graduating Stallion Football Team has 3 seniors who signed to play football at the collegiate level.
