North Valley Christian Schools is now
Providence Christian School!
We are in the process of changing our name from North Valley Christian Schools (NVCS) to Providence Christian School (PCS)! Over the course of this school year, you will see signs, letterhead, and website information changing to identify our K-12 school with the new name. Our Preschool, located on a different campus and serving a slightly different mission, will retain the name Oak Tree Christian Preschool. For more information about our history, click here.
What has not changed is our commitment to providing an academically rigorous, bible-based Christian education that will prepare students to think biblially, emulate Christ, and excel to the glory of God.
PCS serves families in Butte, Glenn, and Tehama counties; our students live in Orland, Chico, Willows, and Corning. Explore the site and let us know if you have questions or comments: email

Our PCS elementary and middle school programs began in 2001 as Oak Tree Christian School, located at Grace Reformed Church in Willows, California. 11 students "crowded" the halls at first; enrollment has grown to over 60 students since then, and continuing growth is anticipated.
By the 2004-05 school year, God had provided a 19-acre campus in Orland with buildings that could be remodeled for use as a school. Providence Christian High School joined the campus for the 2005-2006 school year, and in 2014 the schools adopted the name Providence Christian School.

Our high school program was founded as Providence Christian High School in the year 2000 by parents who saw the need for a Christian high school to serve the needs of Christian families in the area. Founding board members Eugene and Laurel Cleek, Erick and Margie Nielsen, and Chris and Lori Verboom sought to establish an educational environment that would not only be academically rigorous, but spiritually nourishing.
