PRES GIRLS 2013.jpg
For more than 50 years Presentation High School has provided a quality Catholic education to the young women of Silicon Valley.


Presentation, which was founded by the Sisters of the Presentation in 1962, is small compared to many high schools with around 750 students. But within this intimate and nurturing environment, we offer the kind of academic and enrichment programs found in a large-school setting.

Presentation is committed to academic excellence, with a rigorous learning environment that prepares young women for college and a career. Our broad curriculum includes more than 125 courses, including 25 Honors and Advanced Placement classes.

But a Presentation education reaches far beyond the classroom. Faith and spiritual development are important parts of our school, and liturgies, class retreats and other Campus Ministry events create a faith community that fosters sisterhood and service. We also offer outstanding programs in athletics and performing arts, plus dozens of fun after-school clubs and organizations.

We believe a quality Catholic education should be available to many types of students, and our population reflects this ethnic, economic and religious diversity. We are proud of the fact that 100 percent of our students go to college, emerging from Presentation High School as confident, empowered and well-rounded young women who are ready to take on the world.

Presentation High School admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.
