Located in Herriman, Utah, Providence Hall first opened its doors for the 2008-2009 school year as a K-6 public charter school with an enrollment of 700 students. Students are taught within the framework of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (PYP), learning the foundational skills for inquiry-based learning and development as well as becoming well-rounded, caring, individuals.
In 2010, Providence Hall was named Charter School of the Year by the Utah State Office of Education.
In the 2010-2011 school year, Providence Hall opened a junior high school, encompassing grades 6-9. In the junior high school environment, students are taught to build upon the inquiry foundation they develop in the PYP as the junior high emphasizes intellectual challenge, encouraging students to make connections between their studies in traditional subjects and the real world. The junior high fosters the development of skills for communication, intercultural understanding, and global engagement & essential qualities for young people who are becoming global leaders.
In the 2014-2015 school year, Providence Hall opened a high school, bringing our school total to approximately 2,150 students. At the high school students engage in an academically challenging and balanced educational program that prepares students for success in college and beyond.
As Providence Hall has grown, so has its commitment to our schools, families, and our community. Providence Hall moves forward each year committed to constantly improving our impact as we educate globally-minded, balanced, and rigorously educated world citizens.
Picasso said “You cannot teach painting, you must find it.” It is this concept that lies at the heart of Providence Hall’s philosophy. We realize that you may teach a child but unless they choose to learn it for themselves they will not “find it.” Therefore, in addition to traditional teaching methods, Providence Hall’s instructors employ hands-on experience, reflection, and real-life application as methods of instruction in efforts to convey to students the notion that knowledge is power and a tool that can better one’s life. Cooperatively, these methods of instruction will not only educate with knowledge, but also show the significance of that knowledge, resulting in genuine understanding gained from personal experience. Providence Hall believes that every student has greatness within and those educational experiences should guide and assist students in discovering the best within themselves. We believe that by making education relevant and stimulating, students will develop a love and excitement for learning which will extend beyond the classroom promoting a life of learning.
Providence Hall provides quality education that embraces and magnifies a student’s innate curiosity, individuality and special talents. We acknowledge that students are born with strengths and weaknesses in their learning styles. Providence Hall’s environment encourages each child to develop uniquely and supports each child in achieving his or her full intellectual potential.
Providence Hall recognizes the importance of personal responsibility. By teaching students to set goals and evaluate personal accomplishment, students will build confidence and feel responsible for their learning and growth.
