We work hard. We play hard. And we play to win.
“Small is a big experience” at Providence. Every student has the opportunity to grow in athletic skill, experience high-level competition, and benefit from the camaraderie that comes with school sports. Our expert coaches challenge athletes who are at the top of their game and engage athletes who are new to the sport. Approximately 75% of Upper School students play a competitive sport.
We are the Patriots. Our mascot embodies strength, courage, and uncompromising commitment to integrity, service, and excellence.
The Patriot athletic program shapes players into people of character. Sports are a vehicle through which our coaches strive to teach important life skills, including leadership, teamwork, responsibility, service, and perseverance. Athletes gain more than specific athletic skills; they take with them a college-preparatory education, respect for hard work, deeper self-awareness, the ability to play at the next level of athletic competition, and the confidence to positively impact their next community.
Every year, Providence athletes sign with college programs, including men’s soccer at the University of Chicago, women’s basketball at Whitworth College and Westmont, track and field at Cal Lutheran and Westmont, and more.
Providence coaches are chosen for their knowledge, experience, and expertise in their sport. More importantly, Providence coaches desire to disciple young people and challenge them to grow in their relationship with Christ. Our coaches look for “teachable moments” and consistently conduct team devotions and prayer time.
