The heart of Presentation High School lies in the Catholic faith, rooted in the tradition of the Sisters of the Presentation and inspired by its foundress, Venerable Nano Nagle.
Each year, Presentation High School chooses a school and liturgical theme that is intentionally integrated into all aspects of student life--liturgies, retreats, assemblies, classroom and co-curricular activities.
This year's theme is Strength in Community--which celebrates our rich tradition as a Catholic school, rooted in Jesus’ assurance that when “. . . two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matthew 10:20). Through gathering as a body of faith through liturgies, retreats, prayer services, and community service, we gain strength from knowing that God is present within us and within one another.
Our Pres community is strong because it is grounded in faith, in the charism of Nano Nagle and the Sisters of the Presentation. This community encourages each member to love oneself and one another the way God loves us.
- In the fullest personal development of our young women, including relationship to self, others, and God.
- In creating a community of faith in which the Christian message, the experience of community, worship, and social concern are integrated.
- In each Christian's responsibility to use her gifts for the good of the community and to minister as Jesus did.
- That we are all called to be People of God and that our "yes" to God is a response evidenced in prayer, ritual, dialogue, and how we live our daily lives.
We Strive to...
- Provide meaningful experiences of God and the community, which empower students to ask questions, understand and embrace their faith.
- Recognize the gifts and talents of the adolescent and empower her to exercise those talents in ministry and service.
- Explore the partnership shared with family by soliciting their support and involvement.
- Be a resource to students, staff, and families by providing spiritual direction, information, texts, and/or contacts that may promote further growth in one's Christian journey.
- Present an image of Church that is global, reaching beyond our school community.
