Our Providence Story

PCS is a classical, Christian school that opened in the fall of 1995 and graduated its first senior in 2002. Providence operates on a 20-acre piece of property that has been known as “Camp Meadow Wood” for over 40 years. What you will find in these videos is a picture of our Providence story, capturing a glimpse of the impact of Providence on the lives of our students, staff, and families. We are humbled and grateful to God for the story that He has written - and continues to write - through Providence Christian School. We are beyond blessed and grateful for the Lord’s provision over the past twenty-three years and are excited about what God has in store for this school in the near future. If you are interested in learning more about the Providence, we invite you to schedule a Look and Learn school tour by calling 334-702-8933. #myprovidencestory

Our Providence Story: Clay Howell on How PCS Began

Is it really true that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of all wisdom? Is it really true that in Christ are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge? Any attempt that says we can have a neutral education where Christ is not the foundation rattled everything that I believe. I felt called to be part of the discussion at First Presbyterian Church to begin Providence because we wanted to offer an excellent way for the Wiregrass community to participate in a classical, Christian education. Being part of this process of starting a school has reminded me that God is rarely early but never late. He was faithful in providing this educational experience for our community and I thank Him for all that He has continued to do through this school.

My Providence Story: The Benton Family


All three of our kids were at different academic levels at school. Some struggled, others didn't. Our kids learned how to work hard and study at Providence and they were prepared for not only college, but life after school. Providence taught them not just academics, but life skills and a Biblical worldview. To us, that's just as important as the academics.

My Providence Story: Julie Brown, Teacher


I enjoy teaching at Providence because it's like a family. The friendships that I've created with the men and women that work at Providence are friendships with people whose goal is not only to educate the children academically but to grow them into who God has called them to be. It's a privilege to work with these people.

My Providence Story: The Dillard Family


We didn't know anyone when we moved to Dothan. When we came to Providence, we knew this school would take care of our kids. It was a sense of family and we've seen the fruits of that decision as we've watched them graduate.

My Providence Story: The Rikard Family

We chose Providence because we wanted the Christian education for our children. When they were little, we talked about wanting to give them something more. We wanted them to be somewhere where they were bathed in God's word every day. That's what we've received at Providence.

My Providence Story: Ryan Benton

I didn't want to write a senior thesis project but in the long run, Providence prepared me for college. I went on to play college golf at Auburn and was prepared not as a golfer, but also academically. I'm thankful for how Providence gave me the chance to start the golf team at the school so I could fulfill this dream of mine. 

My Providence Story: The Pittman Family

We felt comfortable with a classical, Christian education as an educational foundation and we wanted to give a gift to our kids based upon this biblical foundation. It's one of the best gifts you can give your children. That's what we've found at Providence.
