Visit Us

The best way to get to know us is to visit our campus—and we'd love to get to know you better, too! There are lots of opportunities to explore our beautiful, welcoming campus in the heart of Georgetown.

Cub for a Day

We invite all interested 8th-grade students to experience Visitation through a full-day visit. Our "Cub for a Day" program provides girls with an opportunity to explore our campus, meet teachers and students, and get a taste of our classes and activities.

Our academic day runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Visitors should arrive for check-in at 8:30 a.m. and report to Founders Hall. Interviews will take place during their Cub visit. Visitors should wear their school uniform, if applicable, or attire appropriate for church. No jeans, please. Students will need to bring their own lunch.

Interviews are informal and allow an Admissions Committee member to meet a prospective student, learn more about her academic and personal interests and achievements, and answer her questions about the school. A parent or guardian need not be present, as the interview is primarily an opportunity to meet with the student.

Cub for a Day registration is now open. If you have already begun the application process, please login to the Admissions Portal and click Schedule a Visit. Please note: any visitor who will be inside on campus for more than 15 minutes during the school day must be vaccinated. This includes our eighth-grade Cub for a Day visitors. Masks are required for everyone at all times in all Visitation buildings.

Applicants who cannot spend a day on campus are asked to schedule a virtual interview in place of a full day visit. 

Transfer students may also be a Cub for a Day from February through April.
