About Us


Providence Academy is an independent school established in 2005 by a group of dedicated parents to assist in the intellectual, moral, and spiritual formation of their children and other families within the Coulee Region. The school is guided by a board of directors.  We are dedicated to keeping our class sizes small: 15 students for the Lower School and as many as 20 students per class for the Upper School. We believe our low teacher-to-student ratio provides a unique advantage to the families of the Coulee Region.

Mission Statement

Providence Academy is an independent, private, classical academy in the Roman Catholic tradition established to assist parents in the intellectual, moral and spiritual formation of their children from pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade.  Providence Academy offers a challenging academic curriculum that is steeped in the classics and offered in fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.  At Providence Academy we provide an academic environment where students learn that faith and reason are inseparable.  It is our sincere mission to prepare our students to be leaders in service to God, His Church and humanity.
