All Providence Hall students and staff can access eBooks and audiobooks from our school! Download the Sora by Overdrive app on your device and login with your email. It's absolutely free! See a librarian if you have any trouble.


Finals: Final exams will be given at the end of 2nd quarter in English, Math, Social Studies, and Science. Other classes may give project/performance-based exams. These exams could be worth up to 10% of a student’s final grade. In order to give teachers and students time needed to administer/take these exams PHHS will follow a new finals schedule (found below). Please take time to mark these dates on your calendars in advance. It is important that your student(s) are here for their final exams. No exam will be administered early.


Students who arrive prior to the 8:00am start time can study in the library, commons, or gym. Students who cannot leave early on Friday due to carpool are able to wait in the gym.

PSAT Results:

PSAT results will be available to the Juniors and Sophomores who took the exam between December 10-12th via email. These electronic results are only available to the students who submitted their email address during the pre-testing process. Students should be aware that CollegeBoard will be sending this email soon, and they should not delete it.

Students who did not submit their email address or accidentally deleted CollegeBoards email will not receive their results until January when the school receives a paper copy of their reports.

For more information regarding PSAT results, please contact Melissa McPhail via email (
