Our daughter Catherine has a new smile and light about her since starting preschool at Providence Catholic Children’s Academy.  We watch her grow socially, academically, and spiritually, as well as build her new her self-worth and confidence, thanks to the amazing job that the administration, teachers, and staff have done for her during her first 4 months in school.”

“PCCA has been a gift, not only to our daughter but to our whole family. When the pandemic first started, PCCA did a great job at trying to keep the kids engaged and learning while at home. As a teacher, I know the importance of in-person learning and PCCA has gone above and beyond to keep it that way. My daughter comes home every day excited and talking non-stop about her friends and what they did that day. PCCA administration, faculty and staff are some of the most caring and loving individuals I have ever met. They truly care about each individual child as if they were their own. We are so thankful for PCCA!”
