    Learning… For a Better World

    Using knowledge to improve lives and make our communities a better place is the very heart of what we do at Presentation College. Here, service learning isn’t an add-on or an afterthought. It’s the very foundation of who we are and what our education stands for.

    Because, quite simply, that’s what the world needs.

     

    Our Catholic Tradition

    Our deep Catholic roots guide us in the way we approach learning and living. A core mission of our founders is a sincere commitment to social justice and human dignity, and that commitment is brought to life every day through our efforts to help individuals, families, and communities in need.

That’s why 97 percent of students say they’re satisfied with service learning at Presentation.
