Middle School Programs

You don't have to be a Presentation student to enjoy all our programs we have to offer. We have many programs tailored to middle school students. Most of our programs are co-ed and are either free or at a very low cost.

Leadership Academy

Presentation High School's ASB officers invite all middle school students to a series of leadership workshops. Registration for the spring leadership academy series is now closed because all sessions are full.

This is a fun opportunity to develop your leadership potential and build skills that will benefit you in school and in life. It's also a great opportunity to meet other middle school students who are interested in leadership and learning about high school leadership opportunities.

The cost is $25 per student, which includes all four workshops, a t-shirt and snacks.

Please note, the spring workshops are the same as those offered in the fall. Fall participants need not attend the spring workshops.
