Presentation High School is a college-preparatory high school with a demanding curriculum that contains increasing challenges in both mathematics and the sciences. To become a Fellow of the Academy, students must demonstrate they are interested in math and science by their involvement in activities, such as, Mu Alpha Theta, CSF (California Scholarship Federation), COSMOS, Robotics, Presentation High School Math Team, San Jose Math Circle, and/or the Independent Research Study Course run by the academy. To become a Fellow, students must complete an application and indicate their involvement in the above activities. Students should be participants in at least 2 activities; however, exceptions may be made if students are participating in COSMOS, Robotics, or the Independent Research Study Course. Fellowship is granted to students who are active participants and once a student becomes a fellow, they are life-long members of the academy as long as they continue to follow their interests in math and science.
If a student would like to join the Academy and is not participating in those activities, they must demonstrate a true interest in math and science and petition the director for membership. Students who petition for membership should be involved in extracurricular mathematics or science activities, such as involvement with the local aquariums/science or technology museums, or local university laboratories.
