Welcome to Preston High School’s website! We are a private, college-preparatory school for young women, established by the Sisters of the Divine Compassion. Located in the Throgs Neck section of the Bronx, and ideally situated on the banks of the East River, our natural environment provides a unique setting for study and recreation.

At the best, doing the best we can, we have to depend upon our Lord’s compassion.

—Monsignor Thomas S. Preston

PHS seeks to integrate formal learning, real world experience, and social responsibility with Christian faith and practice. Our school-wide goals aim at fostering our students’ intellectual lives, cultivating a confident posture in their personal and interactive pursuits, and facilitating the development of their unique gifts and talents. Because these are addressed within the context of a  strong and supportive community, they simultaneously foster social consciousness and responsibility, and a positive interpersonal dynamic.

A holistic education which addresses the intellectual, spiritual, emotional and physical dimensions of life is the theme that connects our academic and co-curricular programs and encourages a freedom of mind and spirit and a commitment to lifelong learning.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our community where girls with dreams become women of vision.
