This year's Esprit de Noel ... A Christmas Market is Nov. 4 and 5. The event promises over 70 specialty boutiques, treats, beautiful decorations and music, silent auction, a car raffle, and great opportunities to mingle with the school and local D.C. community. This is also one of Visitation's biggest fundraisers and provides vital support for the school.

Enjoy a preview of our 2016 vendors! Updated weekly!


We will be raffling off a glitzy, shiny 2017 Ford Escape, an SUV "that sips fuel and gushes technology"! Ticket applications are available here and at Founders Hall reception. Questions? Contact Car Raffle Chairs Mike & Annie Isacco (


Each year, hundreds of Visitation parents, alums, and friends offer their time and talents to help make Esprit successful and enjoyable. There are volunteer positions that just last an hour and others that are more involved, and all are a great way to make new friends. If interested, please contact Chris Ward, Esprit de Noel 2016 Chair, sign up online here, or contact one of the committee members at right.


We are seeking your "Attic Treasures" for our "upscale resale" boutique at Esprit. We welcome books, furniture, decorative items, housewares, jewelry -- new this year will be prom and cotillion clothing. Items can be left with the Founders Hall reception; for larger items, please notify the guard, who can help you unload.

We Can't Do It Alone

It takes more than 200 volunteers to make Esprit great—and we hope you’ll be one of them! It is a great way to get involved and meet fellow parents, students, alums, faculty, and staff. There is a place for everyone’s talents and any amount of time you can commit to will be greatly appreciated!
