Providence Homeschool Scholarship
Each year at Providence Christian College, approximately 25-35% of the student body comes from homeschooled backgrounds. In an effort to recognize the excellent preparedness of these students for the tutorial style education they receive, Providence is announcing a new Homeschool Scholarship that is renewable and ranging from $1000-$5,000 to students who have been homeschooled for all or part of high school.
In order to be eligible for the scholarship, students must simply apply to Providence and submit homeschool transcripts. The principles that guide Providence are adherence to the teachings of Scripture, Christ-centeredness in both doctrine and practice, and faithful service in extending the Kingdom of God into every area of life. These principles are woven throughout the Providence experience, from syllabus to school mission statement.
Located in Pasadena, California, Providence offers access to real-world opportunities: From Avodah experiences, May terms, cross-cultural expeditions, and internships to church and organization involvement throughout the college years, the liberal arts education at Providence will prepare students for a career plus life in the 21st century. Use code CHEA when inquiring about our new homeschool scholarship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
