High School Placement Test
Visitation requires the Archdiocese of Washington’s High School Placement Test (HSPT) as its entrance exam. Students attending an Archdiocese of Washington school will receive the high-school choice form and take the HSPT at school in November. If a student marks Visitation as one of her three choices on the HSPT application, her scores will be sent to Visitation automatically. A similar procedure for testing will be in place for students attending any of the Archdiocese of Arlington’s elementary schools.
Students NOT attending an Archdiocese of Washington school should visit ADW.org for registration information. The HSPT registration must be sent directly to the Archdiocese. When submitting HSPT registrations, applicants may ask to take the HSPT through Visitation on December 4, 2021.

As part of Georgetown Visitation's online application, students are asked to write an essay (not to exceed 500 words). They may choose one of the following topics:
1. St. Francis de Sales, co-founder of the Visitation Order, said, "The opportunity of doing great things does not come very often, but at every moment, we can do little acts with great love." As members of the Visitation Salesian community we are called to live this advice through the "Little Virtues": patience, simplicity, humility, gentleness, hospitality, and thoughtful concern for others. Using examples from your own life, how do you exemplify one of these Little Virtues?
2. Georgetown Visitation is a vibrant community of people with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences. How would you benefit from and contribute to such an environment? Consider variables such as your talents, travels, leadership activities, volunteer services, and cultural experiences.
