About Providence Classical School,
Williamsburg’s fastest-growing private school


Providence Classical School is well-known for its outstanding academic program and is the only classical, Christian K-12 school in Williamsburg. PCS nurtures a child’s love of learning and equips them with the tools to think and live as strong Christians. At PCS, our teachers and staff really get to know each child. We love, cherish, and encourage them to reach their full God-given potential.

We invite you to come and see how our students are embracing the classical method of learning, tour the school, meet the staff and review our curriculum. You will be amazed at the extraordinary things our students are doing and learning at Providence Classical School.
