Providence is committed to serving students from all financial backgrounds. Families who feel the full tuition cost is out of their reach can find support in several programs below to make attending Providence a reality.
Childcare Assistance Vouchers are available on a financial needs base through The Department of Social Services. There can be a lengthy waitlist for these vouchers, so early application is suggested. Find out more here.
NC Opportunity Scholarships (administered through NCESSA – North Carolina Educational Assistance Authority) are available to students in grades K-12. This is a needs based program that covers tuition and fees with awards up to $7,492 per year ($3,746 per student per semester). Applications open February 1 – March 1 of each year to be in the lottery. Applications can also be filled out after this time if space is available until Dec 31st. Prospective students who apply for the NC Opportunity Scholarship must also complete the Providence admission process. More information can be found here.
Need-Based Financial Aid is available for families of students at all ages. Eligibility is determined through third-party evaluation by FACTS tuition management. Currently enrolled families may complete their annual application to renew financial aid starting January 1 for the next school year. New families may apply at any time, but the application will not be processed until the student has been accepted for enrollment. You may access the online application here
Flexible Payment Plans are available. You can choose from payment in full, monthly, or bimonthly payment options.
529 Education Savings Plans can be used to pay for K-12 tuition. Under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed in December 2017, you are allowed to take a qualified distribution of up to $10,000 per year for K–12 tuition at any public, private, or religious school from a qualified 529 Education Savings Plan.
Childcare Flexible Spending Accounts can be used at Providence to allow for families to pay for childcare at our school with income before it is taxed. If your employer offers this option, we are happy to sign the paperwork needed.
