“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.”
Georgetown Visitation, founded in 1799, is a college preparatory school rooted in the Roman Catholic faith and Salesian tradition, committed to educating young women from diverse backgrounds. We are a faith-centered community dedicated to educational excellence enriched by co-curricular and service programs.
Our mission is to empower our students to meet the demands and challenges of today’s rapidly changing and morally complex world. We guide our students to become self-reliant, intellectually mature, and morally responsible women of faith, vision, and purpose.
“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."
“My favorite thing about Visitation has got to be the people. I have met people who have changed my life. I have met lifelong friends and people who will help me for the rest of my life. Visitation has helped me greatly in shaping the person I am today.”
“Ever since I first shadowed I've felt like Visi was a safe, healthy, welcoming learning environment where everyone wants the best for each other.”
"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."
Founded in 1799 by the Sisters of the Visitation, Georgetown Visitation provides the spiritual grounding, challenging academics, plentiful opportunities, and supportive and joyous community that enable our diverse community of students to cultivate their God-given gifts.
