We have high school counselors available to help navigate the high school admissions process from beginning to end to ensure a good high school fit for each student.
Graduates of Presbyterian School have a carefully developed foundation of core values when they leave us and they emerge ready for so much more than just high school; they are ready for life!
Our students display growth mindsets, focusing on dedication and hard work, which create a lifelong love of learning. Their passion and resilience have opened many a door for our graduates in high school.
Our graduates are prepared and not afraid to go out into the world to engage themselves comfortably in communities and their many forms. Each year, students eagerly apply and are accepted to boarding schools around the nation.
The foundation of a PS education is priceless. Students have taken what they learned at Presbyterian and are pursuing their passions, expanding their learning, and uncovering new horizons.
