The humble, but inspired beginning of Providence Day School came to fruition on September 28, 1970. Five teachers and 112 students gathered in a converted house on a former horse pasture at the intersection of Sardis and Rama Roads in Charlotte, NC, near the Olde Providence neighborhood. The journey that began fifty years ago is still underway. A Journey of Excellence—Providence Day School captures and commemorates an impressive half century of this independent school inspiring in its students a passion for learning and a sense of social responsibility. The book is scheduled to be delivered at the end of May in time for graduation.
