The Providence Effect

... is a major new theatrical documentary that will change the way America thinks about teaching our children. It captures how one school in the inner city of Chicago, Providence Saint Mel, has created the method and the environment where children learn to think and to overcome social barriers, family circumstances and financial pressures to become high achieving students.


This movie is currently appearing in select theaters. Look for it in your area.

It is a great example of what schools can do.

My father was an alumni of St. Mel's and was very dissapointed when the Archdiocese removed support and it ceased to be a Catholic school. However, in the end he was quite proud of what was being done at his old school.
