Providence School of Tifton serves as an extension of the family to help educate children in the classical liberal arts tradition with Christ at the center. We understand that giving your child the best education is one of the most important decisions a parent makes. Therefore, we want to be clear about our financial and time commitment expectations for our families.

Our tuition and curriculum fees are below. Additionally, each family will be responsible for purchasing basic supplies, uniforms, and individual keep-at-home literature books.

FAMILY SERVICE HOURS

As a part of tuition and to ensure that each family is actively involved in their child’s education, we ask each family to complete 8-hours of service for our school bi-weekly. As our school grows, we expect to make this a monthly or bi-monthly requirement. However, there are many aspects to starting a school and as a “trailblazer” family (first year family), we ask that you invest in the long-term sustainability of Providence for future families in addition to your own child’s education. Therefore, each family (not student) should have one or more people complete a total of 8-hours of community service for our school, every other week. This can include, but is not limited to:

  • Provide on-site childcare for teacher’s children 12 weeks – 3 years from 7:45am – 3:15pm;
  • Provide after hours setup and tear down;
  • Be a volunteer substitute teacher;
  • Offer your expertise in public relations, marketing, fundraising, development, organizing, etc.
  • Offer your gifts of fine arts, music, drama, or PE;
  • Volunteer as an educational specialist, helping children with special needs;
  • Be a teacher’s aid;
  • Upkeep of our facility (i.e. landscaping, cleaning, decorating, custodial, etc.);
  • Advocate for Providence within our community.
  • Be a classroom parent, such as:
    • Classroom Mom
    • Photography Mom
