The small Christian school has a lot to be thankful for, said Head of School Marie L. Miller. The school opened under the name Providence Academy in 2013 after operating as Dominion Academy for 16 years. Dominion Academy, which started as a ministry of Leesburg Community Church, officially closed that year, with church leaders citing declining enrollment.

Since the school re-opened as an independent school and under a new name, enrollment has grown every year and is now up to 190 students. The school has also earned its accreditation through AdvancED and the Association of Christian Schools International in that time, Miller noted.

“We are just so thankful for everything over the last four years,” she said.
