Join us as we set out to reinvent education.
As the Providence Country Day School looks towards our centennial and the century beyond, our highest duty is to provide an education that prepares our students to succeed in life.
Education is at a crossroads
The 21st century has ushered in an era of extraordinary change and proliferation of information. Schools can't adapt to this new world by simply making changes at the margins. Preparing our students for the challenges that await them calls for meaningful, transformative change. We are embarking on a year-long quest to define the ideal 21st-century education.
You want an education that is accessible, personal, and relevant.
Tuition prices are no longer sustainable for the families we serve and this is contrary to who we are. Starting in 2021, PCD is hitting the reset button–resetting tuition by nearly 40%. Tuition will be $22,000 for Middle School and $25,000 for Upper School.
The PCD Playbook
The student-teacher relationship lies at the heart of what we do–and no two students are alike. Starting in fall 2021, every PCD student will receive a personalized book detailing their unique strengths, challenges, dreams, and desires.
As we embark on our Quest we are inspired by the wisdom, resilience, leadership of our alumni community. What are the hallmarks of excellence at the core of a Providence Country Day School education and how do we carry that forward into the next era?
“At PCD, we see a world that is changing so rapidly, it demands a different kind of education than the traditional prep school model. We are redefining that model, transforming it, and setting a new standard for private education.”
Kevin Folan, Head of School
A quest to reinvent a decades-old model has risks, and the possibility of great reward, though the outcome is uncertain.
Like any quest, it is both exciting and daunting, but we are unafraid.
This is what Knights are for.
