  • My children have attended PCS for the past 5 years. They have been provided a sound Christian education. I have nothing but the utmost respect for the teachers and staff at Providence. They are kind, loving, hard workers who strive diligently to make PCS one of the best schools in Savannah. They are intolerate of bullying, disrespect and ungodly behavior and unfortunately have had to let some students go because of this, but because of their stance on this issue they have continued to provide a safe environment for my children to learn and thrive in.

  • My son attended Providence Christian School during the 2007-2008 school year and the school is horrible! The school administration requested that my husband and I sign a written agreement for tuition upon paying them almost $1900 before my son could begin school; however, I was the only one there to enroll him. My husband never signed the agreement; however his signature was later falsified on the document. During the three month period that my son attended Providence Christian, the staff was highly unprofessional and discriminatory to both my son and my husband and I several times and was especially rude when I withdrew him. In addition, for about two of the three months that my son attended the school, he was taught by a substitute teacher who was not qualified to teach as my son’s initial primary teacher left as he was not getting paid! In addition, the Principal called my son 'challenged' to which he is not. Providence Christian claims to offer a quality Christian education and they claim to work with families in a professional, Christian manner; however, this is hardly the case. My son received no grades for the entire time that he was at Providence Christian and after he was withdrawn we had great difficulty getting the school to produce any grades. Finally, when the grades were produced (almost a week after he was withdrawn), I was shocked find that my son was only taught Creative Writing, Grammar and Geography i.e. no Social Studies, no Math, no Science, etc. while he attended the school. (Please note that this issue was reported to the GA State Department of Education).

    Some time after I withdrawn my son from the school, the school began writing to request payment for an additional almost $1600 in tuition they say that my husband and I owe. Throughout this last year, my husband and I have written several letters of complaint to Providence Christian regarding our son's treatment and have advising them of the falsified signature on the agreement with no return response from the school. Recently, Providence Christian hired a collection agency to take over the account, Collectron. This agency contacted me at work a few months ago and advised me that they were going to report the account to all the credit bureaus and sue me. I advised the manager of Collectron of the situation with the ongoing dispute and faxed him all of the dispute letters previously sent to the school. The manager indicated, after hearing my story, that his office would not accept the collection file with an ongoing dispute and that he was sending the file back to the client. A few days ago, I found out that the file was reported to all three credit bureaus (to which I have also written letters of dispute regarding this account). It shall be noted that neither my husband, me nor our attorney were provided ANY written notification of the collection action by Collectron nor were ever contacted by Collectron in any way after the initial call. Also, the company lied about their intended actions. These were both violations of the Fair Credit Report Act and this was reported to the Fair Trade Commission.

    We strongly urge all parents considering Providence Christian to seriously reconsider your choice. Providence Christian does not provide a quality education. The administration is rude, unprofessional and discriminatory. In addition the school cares nothing about the children's education. They seem care only about money, play favorites and do business dirty with collection agencies that don't follow the law.
