Mission and Vision
To love, educate and empower students with intellectual and developmental special needs to live flourishing lives in the peace and knowledge of Jesus Christ. In partnership with parents and with the accredited Providence Classical School of Rock Hill, students at Simply Providence will be enveloped in a nurturing culture, taught by trained professionals and educated through a proven curriculum, as we cultivate students’ hearts, minds and souls in pursuit of truth, goodness and beauty for the glory of God.
When providing a classical Christian education to students with special needs, Simply Providence will teach the Christian faith, strengthen families, and serve as a model for other schools. The Gospel of Jesus Christ will be taught alongside classical Christian instruction and shared through parents, faculty, staff, and students of Providence Classical School and Simply Providence to unite and care for the members of the body of Christ, as instructed in 1 Corinthians 12:12-25.
“For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and all were made to drink of one Spirit.
For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body.
The eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you,” nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.” On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.
