CUB FOR A DAY
September-November

Learn some French or slingshot balloons to learn about velocity—there's no telling what you might do when you attend classes with a current freshman. As a "Cub for a Day," the only guarantees are fun and excitement!

At the end of the day, students will interview with an admissions officer.

What's Happening at Visi

Dr. Edmondson and Sister Mary Berchmans at Installation

Dr. Barbara Edmondson's career has wound through Catholic school leadership at the parish, diocesan and national level, and this July, she became the new Head of School at Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School in Washington, D.C.

And for her, assuming the helm at the Visitation – founded in 1799 by the Sisters of the Visitation, the first Catholic girls school in what was then the new United States – involves continuing a very special educational legacy.

“I feel like Visitation is sacred ground… This is sacred ground in so many ways,” Edmondson said in an interview.

Showcasing Kelly's Spirit: Visi Hosts Brodnik Foundation Fashion Show

Dr. Barbara McGraw Edmondson Installed as New Head of School

“Will you support each of us so that we may discover the diversity of gifts within and among us, honor our uniqueness and liberty of spirit, and live the fullness of God’s beautiful plan for us to be women of faith, vision, and purpose in the Visitation tradition?” asked Sister Mary Berchmans, VHM, ‘48 & ‘50, Monastery Superior and President Emerita, on behalf of the students of Georgetown Visitation.

“I will,” pledged Dr. Barbara McGraw Edmondson as she was officially installed as Visitation’s new Head of School.
