Presentation School offers students opportunities for growth in the following major subjects:
Presentation School is an important ministry of the Church of the Presentation. The Church supports the School’s Vision and Mission Statement to deepen one’s relationship with Christ and to educate students to become well-rounded young adults whose responses to life are based on Catholic truth and values. In achieving the Vision and Mission Statement, it is the role of the Church and School to provide a strong sacrament base for all students.
Sacrament preparation is provided according to parish and diocesan policies. Opportunity is given for those students who wish to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and First Eucharist. Parents must register for the parish sacramental preparation program. Registration dates and times are published in the parish bulletin and in the school newsletter.
The Confirmation Program is established for young adults at a time in their lives when they possess the ability and willingness to understand the importance of and commitment to receiving the Sacrament. Candidates between ninth and twelfth grades are eligible to celebrate this life changing Sacrament. According to current methodology regarding Confirmation preparation, it is not considered to be a time to review a summary of all Christian teaching. Rather, it is simply a time to explore and open up the Rite of Confirmation as the young adult further deepens a relationship with Christ and the Catholic Church. It is a requirement that the candidate has had some form of religious formation; ninth graders must have participated in the eighth grade religious education program or have been a student at the parish school. Sophomores, juniors and seniors must have participated in LIFE TEEN the previous year.

The religion curriculum also includes Catholic doctrine and tradition, Bible study, Prayer, Moral Teachings, Church History, Social Justice, and Family Life. Liturgical services are generally held on the First Wednesday of each month for the entire school community.
