Traditions

My favorite thing about Visi is by far the school spirit and the amazing traditions! I love how involved everyone gets, which makes the traditions so exciting. We love our school, and we’re proud to show it!
When you become a Visi girl, you are joining a timeless community bound by shared experiences and amazing growth. Here remarkable girls become extraordinary women while taking pleasure—and pride—in a host of school traditions, exuberant and sacred. These traditions leave an indelible mark. Visitation graduates stay connected to classmates, teachers, and the school while joining a network of Visitation alumnae eager to help one another. In becoming part of our rich history, students are primed to make their own.

Tradition

Graduation

Graduation at Visitation is marked by white dresses and gloves, red roses, a final walk through the Green Gate, and a bittersweet singing of Cor Jesu as our students become alumnae, joining a sisterhood of 6,500 women of faith, vision, and purpose.

Class Retreats

Every class has an annual retreat that facilitates class bonding and spiritual reflection. As freshmen, students participate in a ropes course together. Sophomore Spectacular is an on-campus evening of fun and friends. Junior Retreat is a three-day getaway to Camp Maria. Finally, as seniors, the class gathers one last time for an all-day retreat before graduation.

Gold-White

The school is split into two teams: Gold and White. After a spirit week of anticipation, the community gathers for a Pep Rally and sports match with the Gold Team competing in a friendly competition against White Team.

The best part of my Visitation experience was Gold-White. I couldn't get the same experience anywhere else.

Gold-White

When students, teachers, and staff members join our community, each is assigned to either the Gold Team or the White Team. Team loyalties run deep and last for life!

Throughout the year, the Gold and White Teams earn points for various achievements and activities. In May, we announce the winning team, which earns the banner...and bragging rights.

Gold-White frenzy reaches its peak during our semiannual Gold-White Weeks, held in the fall and winter. Events include fun dress days, a pep rally, and an athletic match-up (field hockey in the fall and basketball in the winter), and throughout it all, our students' school spirit, creativity, and enthusiasm are overflowing.

 

Experience Gold-White

The one thing I will remember most from my time at Visitation is winning Marshmallow Roast with my whole class, right after singing our senior class song together. After four years, this final victory was amazing!

Student Activities

Over 50 student-led clubs provide opportunities for girls to explore interests and build leadership skills.

Christian Service

Caring for others is a fundamental part of our Catholic faith and Salesian tradition, and our Christian Service Program provides girls with opportunities to put their knowledge and beliefs into immediate practice.

Athletics

Spiritual Life

Our Campus Ministry and Christian Service programs help students deepen their faith and put it into action.
