In May 2000, the Providence Board of Directors and faculty embarked on a process to identify the long-term needs of the school, as perceived by parents and staff. An initial committee comprised of current and past parents, faculty, and board members gathered information through a series of town hall meetings and surveys involving the entire Providence community. The process culminated in the development of a 2003-2008 strategic plan.

This plan identified eight planning areas, including staff compensation, campus development, fiscal responsibility, curriculum, diversity, marketing, financial aid and development.

In 2008, this plan was revisited to assess progress in achievement of goals and to identify new or refine long-term needs for Providence Montessori School. This process is ongoing, as again staff and parents work together to develop a 2009-2014 strategic plan.
