Join the narrative

Every Child has Value.
Every child has a Purpose.

Our Story

Kansas City, Missouri continues to suffer from the wounds of the past. The street called Troost represents a divide of race, income, educational attainment and a plethora of other inequalities. This inequity is most evident in education and impacts the city’s most precious resource; its children. This is the story of Kansas City.

Providence School of Arts is writing a different story. A story that begins with the opportunity to bring healing to these wounds by doing something radically different: serve as a bridge between communities (reconciliation) and open a high-quality school in an under-served community (restoration).

We can’t accomplish this monumental task alone. You can stand up and say, “Every child has value, every child has purpose.” Join the story that will change the future by empowering the next generation.

You will make a difference.

The Gospel

Because restoration & reconciliation begin and end with the Gospel, faith is integrated into every subject matter, teaching a biblical worldview in everything they do. The students are growing in their knowledge of God.

Our Future
