Preston High School is committed to the liberal education of young women. Its program of studies is provided within a nurturing environment where every student is respected for her individual dignity and encouraged to pursue her growth as woman and scholar. At the core of our mission is the practice of compassion, the charism of the Religious of the Divine Compassion, founders and sponsors of the school.
“To see the needs and wants of others and to fill those needs” is the definition of compassion that the school inherits from its patron, Monsignor Preston. As applied to our program of study and personal development, this charism enlivens the educational philosophy of individualization for personal success, happiness, moral behavior (PHS’s motto is “Virtue is a Thousand Shields”) and social responsibility.
