A Powerful Education for Joyful Minds
Visitation students have an appetite for learning, nourished by our experienced faculty and outstanding liberal arts and sciences program. We teach writing, speaking, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills in every discipline, but it's the environment—energetic and collaborative—that takes learning to another level.
Classrooms are vibrant, and girls work together to achieve their personal best. A Visi education is as enjoyable as it is challenging, and our motivated students are well prepared for very selective colleges, varied careers, and all aspects of life.
"Each of my daughters formed strong, lasting relationships with inspirational teachers who became their mentors, champions, and role models."

As part of our school re-accreditation process, Georgetown Visitation has set ambitious goals to enhance our school curriculum over the next several years. We will:
- Add computer science to our curriculum so that 100% of our students receive an introduction to coding skills, with options for more advanced studies.
- Implement more intentional instruction on creating and analyzing data in varied modalities across our curriculum.
- Include more formalized vertical instruction of information literacy throughout our curriculum, ensuring schoolwide understanding of universal research guidelines across academic disciplines.
These areas of focus will benefit all academic disciplines, ensuring that Visitation’s academic excellence continues to meet the demands of our college- and career-bound young alumnae.
