Every child can achieve lifelong literacy…
if taught with a research-based curriculum, in a structured and nurturing environment at a mastery pace.
Building a Foundation for Reading, Spelling & Literacy
A Nontraditional School – for nontraditional learners
- Providence is for students who don’t fit into a traditional curriculum at a traditional school.
- Students quickly build confidence to learn at a personalized pace with teachers who understand their learning styles and areas of strength.
- The school culture is a place for students to thrive socially, emotionally, and academically to become confident, self-motivated learners.
How does Providence do this?
- A Personalized Academic Plan is designed to place each student at the correct academic level to maximize academic progress.
- A multi-sensory approach to learning is built into all subjects and includes projects, presentations, field trips, and a mastery-based progression plan. Below grade level literacy will not inhibit progress in science, social studies, math, and other courses.
- Personalized Instruction is delivered in small groups or 1:1 with teacher collaboration.
- Research-based curricula, strategies, and materials have proven to be effective.
- A structured and nurturing environment builds confidence, trust, and an “I can” attitude.
- Consistent communication and collaboration with parents.
