Academics

To succeed in being a lifelong learner is to succeed as a life-long questioner who embraces a sense of wonder and curiosity of the world. Accordingly, Providence Country Day faculty press for questions as much as answers.

Here we champion independent learning and diverse aptitudes and present a vision of the world as a boundless, ever-changing and provocative place. We strive for balance and ask our students to do the same.

In striving for academic excellence, we are committed to technologies old and new:  a pencil and a graphing calculator; a poster board and Powerpoint; the Providence Journal and a Chinese newspaper available through our library Internet subscriptions; flash cards and a Spanish-speaking pen pal, contacted live through the Shurman Center for Global Understanding and Language Studies. We aim to help students crack the world open like a geode and examine it in a manner central to their own minds.
