    Providence High School is a great environment for both the gifted and talented student as well as the student with learning differences. Students feel part of a family no matter what he/she is involved in whether it is sports theatre or other organizations. Students need not feel ashamed to express their faith. It was amazing the first time I witnessed the student body kneel down and respond with the Lord's Prayer after winning a game.

    Providence is the highest quality education in southern Indiana. The school is especially strong for students who do well with one on one interaction. The low student to teacher ratio allows for more personalized education. I am a Providence alumni with Dyslexia. Without the individualized attention from the faculty I would have struggled through high school. Because the teachers took the time to work with me and teach me in a learning style that worked for me I graduated with an Indiana Academic Honors Diploma and went on to earn my Bachelor's degree. I have created a successful life for myself thanks to the education and help and support Providence has provided me even after high school. Highly recommend it is worth the money for your child to have an excellent education and experience.

    This was and is the best educational facility of its kind bar none. The guidence and education you get there is .unmatched by any learning center in Kentucky. I recomend this school to the world. My education from there has made me a better person for it.

    I attend providence the academics are good but there is a lack of variety of classes. Most of the classes are as challenging as I would hope but I think the teachers do a good job of preparing students for College.

    Absolutely awesome school. Does an excellent job of preparing students academically spiritually and socially. As for academics Providence is factually the best in southern Indiana as shown by ISTEP testing.
