where we invite you to change the game —for yourself, your peers, your community, and beyond.
The Providence Country Day School offers an independent lower, middle, and high school education for PreK through 12th graders.
As an NEASC accredited independent school, we are dedicated to inspiring lives of engaged citizenship, and living our core values every day enables us to fulfill this mission. While we are proud of the successful adults our students become, we are equally proud of the joy and inspiration they find along their journey, simply in coming together each day to talk, listen, study, play, try, fail, perform, win, lose, socialize, reflect, and start again. Here you will find a values system and community character in which high achievement is not attained at the expense of kindness and humanity.
We invite you to explore our website and visit our campus to experience what life at PCD is like and to imagine how your commitment and participation can make a difference in the PCD community and beyond.
Do you have what it takes to be a PCD student? The answer is "yes" if you value academic achievement, seek to challenge yourself across multiple venues, and take the opportunity to be actively engaged in the life of the school. If you want to make a difference, you might want to be a PCD student.
Making a difference—for yourself and for others—in your school, your community, and the world.
Bringing your own perspective but also a willing spirit and an openness to seeing things differently.
Embracing a quiet moment and being a good listener, but also jumping in to make some noise.
Finding your personal voice and the courage to use it.
Making something better every day—for others and for yourself.
Getting your hands dirty—trying something new and valuing both the resulting successes and failures.
Fitting in by standing out—belonging because you are in a community of peers and mentors, each of whom is standing out in a unique way.
Eben and Sarah Bates, Parents
Our kids came to visit and said they instantly knew this was where they wanted to go to school. They felt the sense of community from the teachers, administration and the students immediately. Choosing PCD has been one of the best decisions we have made for our children. The school embraces each child and encourages them to be the best they can be.
Katie Wetherby, Parent
I'm so grateful that my family is a part of this amazing community. PCD is not only a great school that makes every child's education personal and challenging, they are an extension of our family. The teachers and administration are more than educators; they are advocates and champions for each student. They know that there is not one path for every child.
