he confidence and exhileration that come from personal accomplishment and teamwork continue well beyond the classroom at Visitation. From the Green Habits Club to Great Books, Honor Board to Madrigals, Art Club to Christian Action Service, a host of co-curricular activities—too many to mention!—allows students to choose an area that is personally inspiring, edifying, or just plain fun.
As an all-girls school, Visitation encourages young women to hone their leadership skills. Each of our teams, clubs, and campus organizations is student-led: excellent experience in self-motivation, management, and consensus building. And for those girls who truly want to forge a new path, there are also opportunities to start an entirely new campus group—perhaps in support of a special cause, or to help students build a special skill.
All students participate in at least one activity, which meets most Wednesdays during the club period built into our school day. Some clubs that require a greater commitment—like Chorus and "Wicket," the student newspaper—also meet during morning homeroom. We also offer afterschool clubs, such as our Kaleidoscope Multicultural Club. Many students take part in a variety of activities, arts, and athletics, which complement their course work in a unique way and enhance the Visitation educational experience.
