Retreats

Campus Ministry encourages students to take time out to reflect on their faith and build community with their peers.  We offer retreats for each class level to support students in deepening their relationship with God. Our programs provide meaningful experiences of personal reflection and community building which recognize both the faith struggle of adolescence and the fullest personal development of young women. Our retreats are led by teams of peer ministers, faculty, and the campus ministry staff.

How can I register?

  • Once you've read through the information on your daughter's class level retreat below, print out a retreat registration form, fill in your family's information, and mail your form into Presentation High School.
  • Retreat reservations will be accepted in the order they are received. Our retreats are popular and space is limited to 60 students per retreat. Please register early to ensure a spot!
  • If you wish to register for a retreat that is taking place within six weeks, please have your daughter come in person to the Campus Ministry Office. We will happily accommodate her if space is available.
  • Questions? Please Contact Claire Foley at cfoley@presentationhs.org.

What if my daughter needs to drop out of her retreat?

  • Because we make reservations with retreat centers more than a year in advance and pay in full four weeks prior to the retreat, if your daughter drops after the “final drop date” we will charge you an administrative fee to offset what we paid for your daughter to attend. The amount varies by retreat: sophomores pay $35, juniors pay $85 and seniors pay $100. Check the information below regarding the final drop date for each retreat.
  • If your daughter drops before the final drop date, you will not be charged.
If you have questions about our retreats, email Claire Foley at cfoley@presentationhs.org.

Called to Forgiveness


Your daughter is invited to attend one of our two Sophomore Retreats. She will enjoy her first opportunity to attend an off campus retreat with members of her Sophomore Class.  This retreat is held at the beautiful Presentation Center in Los Gatos and is led by our peer ministry team, campus ministers, and faculty. She will get an opportunity to take some time out from her busy schedule to reflect on the important relationships in her life and how patience, understanding and forgiveness can strengthen those ties. The sessions offer small and large group discussions, community building activities, prayer experiences, and free time to relax. This special day will end with a prayer service that offers the opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The retreat is open to and enriched by all faith traditions. Students will depart Presentation at 8:15 a.m. and return to campus at 5 p.m. that evening. 

Two options for Sophomore Retreat:
Thursday, Dec. 3 

8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Register by Nov. 12, 2015. This is also the last day to drop without incurring a $75 fee*

Thursday, Mar. 3 

8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Register by Feb. 11, 2016. This is also the last day to drop without incurring a $75 fee*

* Because we make reservations more than a year in advance and pay in full four weeks prior to the retreat, if your daughter drops after the “final drop date” we will charge you an administrative fee to offset what we paid for her to attend.
