We are a faith-centered community dedicated to educational excellence enriched by co-curricular and service programs.

WHY Visitation

Blain '21

“My favorite thing is the feeling you get when you’re on campus, seeing all of your friends and classmates. When you’re walking up the hill to classes, saying hi to one another, that support system and sisterhood is something I really value.”

“I think the most incredible thing to me is the community. Visitation is not just my school, but my family. To be able to say I am friends with every single girl in my grade is something so special to Visi. The girls in my class have been with me through the ups and downs, and I am so incredibly grateful."

"Visitation offers its students a safe and comfortable environment in which they discover their true selves as they move through the challenging adolescent years. They will learn self-confidence and have the freedom to discover new areas where they can test their talents and interests. It is a lovely experience to watch them grow into mature, self-possessed young women."
