Providence High School started on 22nd September, 1997 with 45 students and twenty six teachers. Student population reached 75 by the end of the session. Founded by Chief Engr. N. C. Onwuagha and Chief (Mrs.) E. U. Onwuagha. It was dedicated on 11th November, 1997 by their Lordships, Most Rev. Dr. A. O. Gbuji and Most Rev. Dr. M. U. Eneje.
Ever since the inception of the school, everything about the school has been guided by PROVIDENCE, from the choice of the name of the school to the go-ahead approval by both the State and Federal Ministries of Education, to the unexpected high number of foundation students who registered with us on the first day, 22nd September, 1997, to the solemn dedication ceremony of 11th November, 1997; to the financial, moral and material support we received from friends and relations; to the growth and development of the school to its present level etc. Emphasis on hard work, academic excellence, discipline, conduct, and comportment, moral and spiritual education remains our hallmark.
The proper spiritual formation of our students has helped to buttress discipline among the student body and for this we owe gratitude to our Catholic and Anglican chaplaincies viz: the Capuchin priests and the Good Shepherd clergymen respectively. At inception, the school premises had one-3 story building and one bungalow acquired by Ferdinand Property Investment Limited from the Federal Government of Nigeria. Both buildings were completed and put into use by Engr. and Chief (Mrs.) Onwuagha between May and September 1997.
