Providence School of Jacksonville is a private Christian college preparatory school in Jacksonville, Florida, U.S. It has a preschool, a lower school, a middle school, and a high school, and enrolls about 1,200 students a year. The school is affiliated with the New Life Christian Fellowship, a non-denominational church in Jacksonville, and opened in 1997.[1][2]

History[edit]

Providence School was founded by New Life Christian Fellowship, a non-denominational Christian church in Jacksonville's Southside. The church moved to establish the school when a word of the Lord was given to their pastor. "You are to start a school, that will be high in academics, strong in Biblical teaching, and teach social graces. You are to have excellence in all areas and it is to be up and running in two years." Shortly after, the school broke ground. Providence opened for class in the fall of 1997 (less than two years later), and saw its enrollment numbers fill quickly, leading to further plans to accommodate growth.

Mission Statement[edit]

In pursuit of academic distinction for all students, Providence School, in partnership with home and church, is committed to disciple students to boldly model Christ-likeness, pursue excellence, and become servant leaders who courageously transform the culture for the glory of God and country.
