Since our school’s inception, the Visitation Sisters have firmly believed that cost should not be a barrier that prevents deserving young women from attending our school. Today, we continue to honor this commitment, offering a total of
in financial aid each year to
nearly one-third of our student body.
In keeping with our mission and the Sisters’, our aid is primarily distributed on the basis of financial need, although we do offer some merit scholarships as well.
NEED-BASED FINANCIAL AID
We encourage any family who thinks that Georgetown Visitation
might be beyond their means to apply for financial aid. We use the School and
Student Services (SSS), a service of the National Association of Independent
Schools, to process aid applications. The SSS applies a consistent and
objective formula to calculate the amount of money a family has available to contribute to their child’s education.

All students who submit ninth-grade applications are considered for these awards. Scholarships continue for four years as long as the awardees remain in good standing.
