Vision & Values

April 2017

Dear Prospective Families and Students,

Thank you for your interest in Providence Preparatory School!  I was searching, as you are now, for an alternative choice for education for my children, as well as an opportunity to be a positive impact as a teacher.  During my search, I read The Global Achievement Gap by Tony Wagner, which exposes current education’s failings, and suggests exciting solutions.  I was introduced to the National Association of University Model School (NAUMS) by another successful educator, and decided this model was the answer!  NAUMS supports schools whose vision is “To strengthen Christian families and values by helping parents prepare college-worthy disciples of Jesus for the next generation.”

 

Providence opened as a High School serving 9th – 12th grades in Fall 2014.  We added Junior High classes in Fall 2015.  Our first graduate of Spring 2016 was accepted to the University of Iowa and aspires to succeed in their well-known Creative Writing program.  Our Graduating Class of 2017 includes four intelligent, talented young women, whose plans include attending the University of North Texas on a scholarship to study math and music, studying environmental chemistry at Texas A&M, pursuing a career in zoology at Tarleton University, and continuing a love of theater at Blinn Junior College.

 

Providence Preparatory School offers the gift of TIME to parents and students.  There is TIME for parents to influence their children in positive ways, TIME for students to discover their talents, and TIME for teachers to get to know their students and work with them on an individual level.  Our students and teachers meet on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at the Grace Community Church Building for classes.  Teachers give students a Weekly Assignment Sheet which describes their work at home on Tuesday and Thursday.  Parents work at home with their students on assignments which reinforce the concepts learned in the classroom.  Regularly scheduled assemblies and field trips offer students and teachers TIME for social interaction outside the classroom.

 

I welcome you to call me at 281-389-9647 to schedule a tour of our school, to ask any questions you may have, and to consider the possibility of becoming a part of Providence Preparatory School.

 

Best regards,

Tabatha Carey

Founder, Head of School, Teacher

  • Cultivate parental involvement in their students' educational process 

  • Instill students with a Biblical worldview

  • Guide students in discovering the gifts that God has given them

  • Empower students with skills that will prepare for success in college and careers. 

As a member of the National Association of University-Model Schools (Naums), Providence Preparatory upholds the following values:

  •      ​Educate with Excellence

  •      Integrate Home and School

  •      Strengthen Family Relationships

  •      Love and Glorify God

  •      Help Make Disciples

Providence Preparatory offers classes to 6th grade through the 12th grade.  Students can register as "full-time" students by taking at least the four core classes of English, Math, Science, and Social Studies.  "Part-time" students can register for any number of classes.  Families who homeschool their children now have a great opportunity to help their students transition to the type of classroom setting they might see in college.

Providence Preparatory admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to its students and does not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, or athletic and other school-administered programs.
