About Viz

Greetings and Welcome to Visitation Academy!

Visitation Academy is an independent, Catholic school that provides an educational and spiritual experience that recognizes and appreciates each student for the individual they are, inspiring them to discover and celebrate their unique gifts and empowering them with the knowledge, virtues, and skills to thrive in the world ahead.

From the thoughtfully prepared learning classrooms of our coeducational, early childhood Montessori program for Toddlers through Kindergarten to the challenging and innovative curriculum and area’s only all-girl program for Grades 1-12, Viz understands the ways students learn, both in and out of the classroom, and creates an environment that promotes curiosity, free expression, and problem-solving; builds confidence and leadership skills; and allows students to, “Be who you are and be that well in order to give glory to the Divine Artist whose handiwork you are.”

Our high-performance academic setting is supported by a welcoming and inclusive foundation of Catholic Salesian spirituality. As students learn to “Live Jesus” with gentleness, humility, joy, and freedom, they are prepared to continue to grow and to respond to others, the Church, and the global community. The schools’ commitment to academic excellence and spiritual formation is complemented by a vibrant fine arts program, diverse entrepreneurial studies, inclusive yet competitive athletics program, and numerous extracurricular clubs and service opportunities.

History buff. Aspiring actor. Budding entrepreneur. Future scientist. Promising artist. Technology whiz. English master. Math genius. Star athlete. Master builder. Music virtuoso. Shy. Outspoken. Serious. Silly.

Whoever you are. Whatever you want to become. There is something for you at Viz. Come join us and embrace your individuality and discover your greatness.

In Christ,

David Colón
