Providence Catholic Children’s Academy (PCCA) was founded in 1992 by Rev. Richard J. McGrath, OSA. Under the Diocese of Joliet, PCCA serves the religious and educational needs of young children between the ages of 3 and 6. PCCA provides a nurturing environment by professional teachers who help develop the social, emotional, cognitive and physical skills of students in a loving Christian atmosphere.

PCCA offers both full day and morning preschool and prekindergarten and full day kindergarten. Furthermore, the school offers before and after school care, which helps to accommodate working parents and is more affordable than most day care facilities.

PCCA is located on the campus of Providence Catholic High School at 1800 W. Lincoln Highway in New Lenox. Questions? Call Mrs. Laura McErlean, Principal at (815) 485-7129.
