Our academic program is clearly defined: it prepares students for higher education. To that end, we strive for excellence in all aspects of the teaching-learning process. Students, teachers and administrators have high expectations of themselves and of one another. We regularly evaluate our curriculum to ensure students have the tools they need to succeed in their future academic pursuits. Course offerings are designed to give all students the opportunity to reach their fullest intellectual potential.

Reading & Language Arts
Our curriculum is based on McGraw-Hill’s Reading Wonders, a new program offering a comprehensive set of digital and print tools for reading and language arts. We utilize research-based instruction and high quality literature to engage and equip our students with the skills they need to achieve success in high school and college.
We use McGraw-Hills’ My Math as the basis for our mathematics curriculum. This program supports our goal of making math both fun and memorable for our students. We use a colorful and intuitive lesson format to customize and deliver math lessons in a way that works best for each student.
Our science program is centered on engaging activities that promote curiosity and foster development of our students’ inquiry skills. Interactive Science, a science program from Pearson, offers an interesting framework that we utilize to build on students’ experiences and support them with a life-long understanding of science concepts.
My World, a Social Studies program from Pearson, is dedicated to building a core understanding of social studies content, awareness and skills. Each grade level has a theme-based focus that begins with building local community knowledge and gradually expands to global comprehension.
All students at Providence Englewood participate in art classes. Art is an excellent opportunity for students to utilize and develop skills that expand their creativity and expression.
