September 27, 2023

ABERDEEN, S.D.–Presentation College in Aberdeen officially closed its campus in August. Now, the Presentation Sisters are looking to sell portions of the campus.

Presentation announced in January it would be closing down.

The college, which was founded in 1951, is now for sale, including buildings and land.

“We would like to see the land used for some purpose that would align with the values of the Sisters,” Sister Mary Thomas, President of the Presentation Sisters Corporate Board, said.

Presentation Sisters have been in the Dakotas since the 1880s on a mission of education and health care. They founded Avera St. Luke’s Hospital in 1901 and together with the Benedictine Sisters of Yankton, sponsor the Avera Health system.
