The faculty, administration, and staff of Georgetown Visitation all seek to equip young women with the values, knowledge, skills, wisdom, and confidence they need to meet their fullest potential. Learning takes place all day on our campus–both inside and outside of the classroom–but our academic program particularly helps our students thrive in the rapidly changing, morally complex world beyond our gates.
Our core courses provide a strong foundation in fundamentals, while an array of electives–including many honors and Advanced Placement classes–allow girls to explore additional interests and reach for new levels of achievement. We both challenge and nurture the students entrusted to our care.
Visitation’s faculty is comprised of enthusiastic, dedicated men and women who strive to create an engaging learning environment that encourages critical thinking, intellectual curiosity, and academic excellence. Our low 9:1 student-teacher ratio ensures each girl gets the support and attention she needs. In classes, teachers incorporate creative assessments and draw on the rich resources of our city to generate real-world connections and encourage responsible local, national, and global citizenship.
With the leadership of Academic Dean Sue Foreman and the support of a gifted team of personal and college counselors, Georgetown Visitation stands ready to educate young women of “faith, vision, and purpose” who model compassion, personal excellence, and leadership for our world.
