All members of the community are invited to experience Providence Catholic’s family atmosphere first-hand. Providence Catholic High School, located on 75 beautiful acres in New Lenox and only minutes from I80 and I355 welcomes all grade school students and their families to attend their annual Open House on Sunday, November 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“Guests will have the opportunity to witness first-hand the hospitality of the Providence Catholic family,” said Rachel Ellingson, Director of Enrollment. “Our teachers, coaches, students and parents will be on hand to tell the Providence story to our guests. Academic, spiritual, athletic and extracurricular programs will be highlighted throughout the day.”
“Our demanding co-educational, college preparatory curriculum is evidenced by the success of our most recent graduates who earned scholarships valued at nearly $30 million dollars. We offer inclusive service programs; in fact, our recent graduates performed in excess of 25,000 hours of community service during their high school careers,” added Fr. Richard McGrath, President.
“We will also be showcasing the school’s latest technology. This includes our four mobile language labs, as well as our Dual Credit Program through Moraine Valley Community College. This program allows our students toreceive college credit for all technology courses taken at PCHS,” said Ellingson.
Moreover, Providence Catholic offers competitive athletics and comprehensive extracurricular offerings. The school currently holds 30 state championship titles; the most among private high schools in the state of Illinois. Last school year, the school’s varsity baseball team made Illinois history by capturing its 3rd consecutive state championship title.
