“Its a very tight knit community. I have friends in every class. It's a really big community that we can all share in and grow together.”
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.
“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.”
"Being surrounded by like minded women who also have the urge to be the best version of themselves makes you a better version of yourself."
“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."
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.
