Providence was 1 of 14 area schools participating in this event, which introduced the Montessori method of education to interested families and children.

Scouting is alive and well at Providence — scouts have been meeting at our school for over a decade. Here on the Providence campus are two scouting projects done by Providence alums:
Alumnus Wesley Walker created this amphitheater. This sets the stage for student performances, as well as occasional outdoor lessons.
Alumnus Tyler Weathers contributed this bridge and rock garden to the Providence campus. Students cross it to go from the FAAB (Founders’ Arts and Activities Building) to the playground, or to our main building.
Providence parent Jonathan Ware shared some news about a fantastic project that Lexington’s Gray Construction has done with the Boy Scouts of America. Click here to read his blog post about it!
