The Independent School of Cooperative Education Providence High School was founded in 1955 by the Providence Sisters who wanted to create an institution of quality academic education with strong moral principles (the official religion is Catholicism). Today the school enjoys well-deserved popularity and fame, respect for the colleagues in the educational world; Accreditation of the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), is actively working in the California Association of Independent Schools (CAIS). The institution is a member of the Blue Ribbon High School.
Initially, the Providence High School was only for girls - coeducation was accepted only in 1974, and the campus was organized for young men. Today about 400 children from different countries of the world are studying here (mostly Americans). The official slogan and credo is You Belong Here.
Providence High School participates in the Nacel Open Door F-1 Public School Program, an international program aimed at providing foreign students with the opportunity to study in US government institutions in the High School program. The peculiarity of this course is the comprehensive, constant support of foreigners: the curators understand well that many children for the first time have left their country for themselves and for long, and strive to provide them with the most comfortable and convenient conditions. The Nacel program has been working successfully for over 10 years, hundreds of students have participated in it - only now about 500 students are involved in it, many of whom decided to repeat or extend the previous course. Such useful services are offered free of charge and on an ongoing basis:
