• Welcome to Presentation! Please see our Virtual Open House Videos below!

    On behalf of Father Stanley Poltorak, Pastor, Carrie Donahue, Principal, and the Faculty and Staff of Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary School (PBVM), welcome to our school year! PBVM began in 1961 as our first year of operation. Our goal is to work together with our parents to help our students learn, grow and develop to their full potential academically, spiritually, physically and emotionally. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to this goal through forming the student in freedom for excellence and guiding their transformation in Christ through Grace and virtue.

    § Formed in Freedom for Excellence | Transformed through Grace and Virtue | Living in Joy Born of Truth §

    First and foremost, every Catholic educational institution is a place to encounter the living God who in Jesus Christ reveals his transforming love and truth. This relationship elicits a desire to grow in the knowledge and understanding of Christ and his teaching.
    - Pope Benedict XVI -
