Mission and Values

Our Mission

The mission of the Providence Country Day School is to inspire lives of engaged citizenship in a diverse community of motivated learners. By meeting high standards for academic achievement, ethical behavior, and community participation, PCD students grow with confidence and prepare for a lifetime of learning and leadership.

Our Core Values

Commitment and Participation
Individual commitment and active participation are the personal contributions that open doors to confidence and competence. Growth is the triumphant result of surpassing one’s own expectations.


Diversity is the wealth of our community. When we embrace the many perspectives among us, we are enriched with an increased cultural awareness and sense of belonging.

Hard Work

Persistence and hard work are essential ingredients for success in all areas of personal growth and achievement.


Honesty is the foundation of our community. Our strength is secured by trust, and that trust grows through truth in actions and words.

Intellectual Curiosity

Intellectual curiosity is the spark that drives us toward academic excellence.


Respect—for oneself, for others, for ideas and for property—is the vital connection that makes every individual a valued member of our community.


Shared experiences and teamwork embody the interdependence of each member of our school and fulfill our potential as a dynamic community of learners.
