Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Georgetown Visitation! For over 200 years, since 1799, our school has offered young women an amazing education—one that challenges them academically as it nurtures them spiritually and morally.  

We are a school and a community filled with joy, faith, and a sense of purpose and self-worth. Our students exuberantly embrace beloved school traditions like Gold-White and Marshmallow Roast, learn the meaning of giving through our robust Christian Service Program, and develop a lifelong love of learning as well as friendships that last a lifetime. Whether athletes or artists, performers or writers, our students find opportunities through our many co-curricular activities to develop their talents, grow in confidence and faith, and develop their God-given gifts.  

Our founders, the Sisters of the Visitation, are still an integral part of our community. They have blessed us with a legacy of Salesian Spirituality, a gentle yet powerful philosophy that flows from St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal, founders of the Visitation Order.  It is marked by the “Little Virtues”—like kindness, gentleness, optimism, faith, perseverance, and thoughtful concern for others—that foster a strong, faith-filled community that is sensitive to the needs of others, and encourages each student to, as St. Francis suggests, “be who she is and be that well.” 

As you explore our website or visit our campus, I hope you will catch a bit of our unique spirit!
