The mission of Providence Christian College as a Reformed Christian institution is to equip students to be firmly grounded in biblical truth, thoroughly educated in the liberal arts, and fully engaged in their church, their community, and the world for the glory of God and for service to humanity.

A Providence education is rooted in the classical liberal arts—an immersive study of God’s common grace found in the richness of the Western intellectual tradition. Providence embraces the aspirational ideals of Western Civilization: love of liberty and neighbor, public and private morality, human and societal flourishing. Our courses are purposefully designed to empower you with core knowledge in your field of study, electives that interest you further, and internships to gain vocational experience.

Phase I – Your Core
A Providence education begins with a twenty-four course academic core in which students study the best of what has been thought, written, and said, with the goal of encouraging students to live a life of purposeful, God-glorifying engagement.

Phase II – Your Concentration
Our students choose a concentration from eight disciplines. These concentrations are purposely selected to enable them to pursue a calling in the service of God and others.

Phase III – Your Capstone
In their third and fourth years, Providence students branch out of the classrooms and participate in apprenticeships, internships, and experiential and study-abroad opportunities in preparation for their vocations beyond Providence.

Cross cultural immersion experiences
In order to equip students to effectively engage the diverse local and global community, Providence sponsors Avodah Experiences, which offer a holistic view of education giving practical application of theoretical teaching in the classroom through day trips and extended cross cultural immersion experiences. The purpose of the program is to understand kingdom service and culture — including the people, worldviews, artifacts, traditions and languages.
