WHY A VISITATION EDUCATION?
roviding a powerful education for joyful minds, Georgetown Visitation prepares motivated
young women for successful futures by nourishing their enthusiasm for learning and
challenging them to “be who you are and be that well.” Indeed, our students discover their
best selves by engaging in our varied opportunities—enriched by our excellent Georgetown
location—and by exploring their faith.
Our Salesian Spirituality, and the values known as the
Little Virtues, have an immense impact. Students become not only well-rounded, but well-balanced—
proud and humble, strong yet gentle, passionate and compassionate, spirited
and deeply spiritual. They support one another, because they know that every girl can lead,
shine, and achieve her potential when boosted by friends who will last a lifetime. In joining
our long tradition, students delight in sharing it with their Visi sisters and in making it their
WELCOME FROM THE ADMISSIONS DIRECTOR
To prospective families and students,
Ask any student at Visitation what she values most about her experience here, and she will most likely say the relationships that she has developed with friends, teachers, Sisters, and other members of the Visitation family. Most of our alumnae will say that their closest friends are those they met while attending school here.
These relationships are built as our students engage in stimulating and challenging academic course work. Our young women are intellectually curious and are encouraged to develop strong critical thinking skills that serve them well as they continue their educations in college and beyond.
Our students learn outside the classroom as they participate in Christian service projects, athletic competitions, performing arts programs, retreats, and traditional celebrations such as Marshmallow Roast and Gold-White. Participation in all of these activities offers our girls opportunities to broaden their life experiences as they grow spiritually, intellectually, and emotionally.
As you consider your high school options, we hope that Visitation stands out. We look forward to answering any questions you might have and introducing you to our campus.
