As a classical Christian school, developing students in the area of rhetoric, or public speaking, is a primary goal in the classroom. The faculty at Providence strives to cultivate within their students the ability to communicate effectively and articulately. Preparing for and participating in the speech meet has given the students an opportunity to acquire these skills.

Providence Christian School, located at 252 Byrd Road in Oxford, is a private school serving Rockdale, Newton, and Walton counties, with Classical and Christian education.
