Mission, Vision & Diversity

Our Mission

Presentation High School is a secondary school for young women whose purpose and direction flow from the teaching mission of the Catholic Church and the educational ministry of the Sisters of the Presentation. This school strives to infuse the entire educational experience with the vision of life found in the Gospels. Each student is challenged to become a woman of faith, dedicated to working with others, intellectually competent and committed to her personal growth.

Our Vision

Presentation High School is an inclusive community that empowers young women to become fearless and faithful leaders determined to serve the world.

Our Commitment to Diversity

As an all-girls Catholic high school founded on the principles and values of foundress, Nano Nagle and the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary:

  • We believe that all persons have inherent dignity and are made in the image and likeness of God. 

  • We are committed to an inclusive community which promotes respect, loving dialogue, equity, empathy, humility, courage, understanding, and societal awareness, both locally and globally.

  • We believe that diversity is a blessing that refers to the myriad of personal experiences, values, perspectives, talents, and worldviews that arise from differences in culture and circumstance. 

  • We are committed to creating a diverse learning environment where each student may reflect on their own identity, experiences, talents, and abilities to lead and serve others in a way that is rooted in radical faith, compassion, justice and love.

All members of the Presentation community are responsible for advancing an understanding of and a respect for diversity as it includes, but is not limited to:  ability, age, belief, ethnicity, family structure, gender, gender identity, learning style, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

Family Partnership

Presentation works in partnership with the family, which is the primary educator. As partners in faith, Presentation works with the family in the spiritual and intellectual development of its students.
