WHY Visitation

“There is an overwhelming sense of belonging. You can be what you want to be. No one puts you down if you like something different from them. I can’t imagine myself anywhere else. This is the place for me.”

“I didn’t have much of a voice in middle school. Coming here, I am finally able to say what I want to say and everyone is listening and everyone cares. I have found friends here that I know I’m going to keep for the rest of my life.”

"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."
