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.
Our Service Curriculum
In order to fulfill graduation requirements, students complete at least two service learning projects. You’ll have the flexibility to choose from a broad range of service learning programs and opportunities, and you’ll enhance the experience through reflections and journaling.
Our Boundless Enthusiasm
From building homes through Habitat for Humanity, to “Shop with the Saints” for families in need, to packing lunches at the local food bank, to hosting community meals and health clinics, to countless other service activities, there’s no limit to our enthusiasm for service. That’s why 97 percent of students say they’re satisfied with service learning at Presentation.
