Presentation is proud of our need-blind admissions process and to be one of the few schools in the nation to meet more than 100% of verified needs for tuition. This practice has led to an increase in diversity over the last few years that has benefited our community greatly, a trend we expect to continue in the coming years.
Our need-blind admissions process has also led to an increase in requests for financial assistance. For the 2022-2023 school year, 24% of our students are receiving some percentage of financial assistance.
To ensure every mission-aligned applicant has the opportunity to attend Pres, we have allocated $2.8M for tuition assistance for this year.
Your investment in Tuition Assistance ensures the incomparable Pres experience is accessible to every admitted student, no matter what her personal financial situation may be.
The cost of a well-rounded Pres education goes beyond tuition. From textbooks to uniforms and program fees, additional expenses can add up to another $2,500+ per student per year.
For this reason, Presentation High School established the PRES fund. The PRES fund provides non-tuition financial aid (NTFA) to subsidize these additional expenses for students that qualify based on verified needs. For the 2022-2023 school year, more than $150,000 has been budgeted for NTFA, but requests for assistance greatly outpace this allowance.
Your investment in the PRES fund will help ensure every student has the opportunity to explore her interests and participate fully in her chosen activities. You will help her shine her brightest throughout her Pres experience.
