As parents of two children at Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School, we couldn’t be more pleased with the new school and its faculty and staff. We feel that MPRCS provides a challenging curriculum and a strong religious education but most importantly, our children are happy and thriving at Mother of Providence.

We have chosen Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School for many reasons, as we view education as molding the entire person. The rigorous academic curriculum challenges our children. Our second-grader and third-grader constantly want to be in touch with their classmates, and the School fosters interaction with their fellow students through various activities during and after school. All of this occurs within the context of a faith-based environment which is teaching them how to conduct themselves and, more importantly, why to conduct themselves that way.

I have two boys in Mother of Providence. One is in 4th grade and the other in 2nd grade. Cole and Daniel started their first year this year. It was a little scary at first but they have acclimated well. They both have tons of friends and Cole has become a prayer partner this year. Many opportunities have also opened up for them. Cole is participating in honors math for the first time and Daniel has really learned to navigate a computer in the lab. Both Cole and Daniels grades have exceeded beyond from the past years. The teachers are eager and easy to talk with for both student and parent. Our whole family felt so welcomed from the moment we stepped thru the doors of MPRCS.
As a parent, one of the most important decisions you face is where to send your child to school. Mother of Providence has been a wonderful preschool experience for our two boys. The teachers and administrative staff are caring, involved and committed. We have been so pleased to watch our two boys thrive at Mother of Providence over the past year and look forward to watching the school and our boys thrive in the coming years.
We have two children attending Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School (MPRCS). Our son is in the 4th grade and our daughter is in the second grade. The regionalization of the school has been very positive for our children. Over the past summer the entire school facility was given a face lift. The Science lab is impressive as is the Technology room. Catholic Education has always been our priority. The children attend weekly benediction on Friday's and attend mass on Wednesday's on a rotating basis.
Some will say that Catholic School can not accommodate children that have educational needs. This is not the case at MPRCS. One of our children is hearing impaired. The teachers have been very responsive and work with our son to use an FM system to help him hear the teacher better. Both of our children need reading support and they receive this in our new school. In addition to the normal curriculum, they are learning both French and Spanish. Our fourth grader is also taking a music class and is learning to play the drums. Our second grader will receive First Holy Communion this year. We are thrilled that our youngest son will start at the school next year!

My family and I have had a wonderful start here at Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School. I personally love the small class sizes and the benefits that it has provided my seventh grader. My Kindergarten student loves the primary unit and participating in activities with the other classes. If you feel that technology should be a big part of learning then you will definitely find that here at MPRCS. I am impressed with the teaching staff and feel that my children have learned valuable lessons that they can use outside of the classroom. I also believe that their regular attendance at Mass has been a very important part in their Catholic education.
I love that the things we teach at home are reinforced in the school environment. With 3 children at MPRCS, we get to interact with children, parents, and teachers in grades K, 4, and 7. In every grade there is a spirit of acceptance. A child does not have to be a stellar scholar or stand-out athlete in order to be appreciated for the unique God-given gifts they bring to the classroom and playground. And that's who we want our kids to grow up to be - the people who look at everyone as a child of God and never let the gifts that come from God make them feel superior in any way to others. I feel blessed to have found MPRCS to help us make that possible.
Most of our five children have attended public school and home school over the past several years. Finding ourselves not completely satisfied with either option, we visited Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School during an open house. Soon afterwards, we decided to enroll our children. Now, all five attend, and we have been very pleased with all that the school has to offer.

It is said that the greatest gifts a parent can give a child are love, education & memories. We believe that a Catholic education, especially at Mother of Providence Regional Catholic School, provides all three of those gifts in a faith-filled environment. Our son is a PreK-4 student at MPRCS, so although we have only been a part of the school community for a short time, we have felt very welcomed and supported. The entire MPRCS staff is truly committed to the protection and betterment of all the children. The teachers, aides and administrators are loving caretakers and faithful examples for all the students. To see how our son grows in all areas of knowledge – faith, reading, math, etc. – is a testament to the high standards of education to which the school constantly strives. It is amazing to witness him learn something new every day. Our son has also made many new friends in his class and enjoys meeting with his 4th grade prayer partner every week. The special school activities and celebrations add to an excitement that he’ll remember and cherish as he grows up. We are looking forward to deepening our experience and commitment to Catholic education when we send our 2nd son to MPRCS in 2014!
Mother of Providence School has made Ruth’s first exposure to school a very positive one. Her PreK-3 teacher, Ms. Tiger, and the staff make her feel welcome and loved.
