AcademicsFor 180 years, Visitation Academy has educated young women, boys and girls in both mind and heart.
Visitation's preschool and kindergarten programs, grounded in the Montessori tradition, give young boys and girls, ages 2-5, a foundation of learning which will provide them with the skills necessary to succeed in Visitation's Lower School, and for boys, any school they choose to attend.
The only girls' school in the St. Louis area for Grades 1-6, Visitation's Lower School provides an environment where students feel free to express opinions, excel in academics and sports, assume leadership roles and realize individual talents.
The Upper School, Grades 7-12, offers a challenging college preparatory program in an all-girls environment. Each year, graduates are pursued by selective and prestigious colleges and universities. With a well-rounded education, students strive to "Live Jesus" by reflecting Christ's gentle strength in their daily interactions and, as alumnae, carry this philosophy into the world as responsible citizens.
