Presentation High School

Presentation High School is an inclusive Catholic, college preparatory school community serving young women.
Our transformative education, rooted in faith, justice, compassion, and love, inspires students to bring positive change to the world.
While at Presentation, your student will strive while feeling centered because we anticipate and respond to our student's needs for balanced academic and personal growth within a culture of service.
Academically engaged, your student will launch from where they comfortably start to where they can go.
Personally they will learn to navigate their dynamic high school years while prioritizing wellness.
Culturally, we prepare girls for the world they are entering and will shape.
There are few opportunities in life when we can gift our children the time and space for what they need most and the tools to continue to thrive in college and life. That time is now.

School Notes

  • Pres is the right size for high schoolers to engage deeply in learning-to think big, collaborate, and dive into a variety of interests. Small by design, we know each student well, so we can provide access to many choices.
  • We show up for each other every day and encourage participation and healthy debate, creating both a variety of challenging experiences and lasting connections. Accessing all there is to offer and the best of themselves, Pres students discover what's possible.
  • During their time at Pres, students will shine as they develop what they uniquely bring to the world, guided by our culture of service and growth.
  • With a team of educators, mentors, spiritual role models, and coaches, students will grow even more into what makes them unique. One class, game, project, performance, and relationship at a time, students inspire others to follow as they shape the world around them.
