If a child you care about is struggling to learn to read, I hope you will spend some time on this website learning about our school and how we may be able to help. Provident Charter School is dedicated to teaching children who are struggling to read. We know how frustrating it is when smart children just cannot seem to learn to read as easily as their friends. We know what it takes to teach and support this type of learner:
This school is a lot of work for students, no doubt – long days and intense lessons, but that is the path to success. We also recognize that our students need balance in their lives, and so with hard work we must also dedicate time for fun! School is a positive, uplifting experience and our students will take time to breathe, enjoy life and appreciate one another. Parents and family members of Provident students find a supportive, compassionate staff helping break down the walls of frustration in order to uncover and develop each child’s inner superstar. Family members are our partners in this journey, and we walk with them each step of the way.
If your child, or a child that you know, is frustrated with school due to struggles with reading or writing, please pass along the word about Provident. One in five students has a language-based learning difference and now Pittsburgh has a school dedicated to serving those students. Get the word out, follow our journey and become a champion for Provident Charter School!
