Providence Hall chose the Lions as our mascot to communicate that we are representatives of Christ. Since God and Jesus are frequently represented as the Lion of Judah and we are called to be Christ-like, our founders thought the Lion best represented our calling.
The image of the Lion also evokes traits that serve well in the competitive athletic arena: Bravery. Protection. Ferocious. Powerful. Courageous. Noble. King of their Domain.
The Lion also corresponds to the classical basis of our curriculum, with its frequent appearance in traditional English heraldry. The position of the Lion at the top of our school crest demonstrates Christ above all things.
