In order to return to school, everyone in the community needs to work together to adhere to public health guidance, whether on campus or off. We are asking all students, faculty, and staff to read, sign, and honor the Visitation Community Health Pledge. This commitment to safe health practices will help prevent the spread of Covid-19 in our community and protect the well-being of all.

The Covid-19 pandemic has triggered grave economic conditions throughout the nation. We have Visitation families who have lost jobs or income and are now worried that their daughters will not be able to complete their treasured Visitation education.
This pandemic should not prevent a single student from graduating. We are committed to keeping our community whole - to not losing any students, faculty, or staff during this crisis.
We’ve created the Covid Student Aid Fund to help families in need and ensure all current and incoming students can remain a part of the Visitation family.
If your family is concerned about being able to pay tuition as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, we are here for you. Please complete this form, which will be sent directly to me and will help us distribute aid to the families in greatest need. Your request is personal and will be held in confidence. In addition, we ask that all families who have not previously submitted the 2020-2021 Parent Financial Statement visit the School and Student Services Family Portal to complete that document along with the form.
The strength of our faith and our community will carry us forward together.
Please reach out to Head of School Dr. Barbara McGraw Edmondson if you have any questions.
The Board of Directors of Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School wishes to acknowledge and express our appreciation for the hard-working, creative, and thoughtful leadership of Head of School Barbara McGraw Edmondson and Principal Mary Kate Blaine in shepherding the Visitation school community during the Covid-19 pandemic, which has disrupted all of our lives. From the time this spring when Visitation shifted to virtual operations through this fall as we are preparing to welcome students back to campus for the first time in months in hybrid virtual in-person operations, Visitation school leadership has demonstrated its commitment to protecting students, faculty and staff in line with local government guidelines while ensuring Visitation can continue to provide a quality education to its students. Throughout this period, Head of School Edmondson, Principal Blaine, and Visitation’s staff have been in frequent communication and consultation with the Board on strategies to continue school operations, transform Visitation traditions into virtual formats, and protect the school’s financial stability. We stand with Visitation’s school leadership in welcoming our students to campus and implementing strategies to build and maintain community during this challenging time. During this transition period, the Board invites Visitation parents to provide feedback and ideas to support Visitation’s over 200-year history of providing high-quality Catholic education for young women in the Washington, DC region.
