About Viz

Welcome to Visitation Academy! Whether you are a member of our community or a first-time visitor, this web site offers you a comprehensive overview of who we are and what we embrace. Captured in photos and prose, you will “see” us and read our story, of which we are very proud.

Founded in 1833 by the Sisters of the Visitation, the Academy is rich in tradition and has a long-standing reputation for providing academic excellence in the Catholic tradition. Visitation’s values-driven educational system is as relevant for the 21st century as it was for the 19th.
In fidelity to the spirit of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal, our students thrive in an environment that encourages the development of each individual while also fostering an awareness of the broader community’s needs. Adult and youth alike strive to “Live Jesus” and emulate the “little virtues” integral to our Salesian spirit: joy, humility, simplicity, reverence and respect.

We invite you to visit often to learn more about the wonderful world of Visitation Academy. I personally extend an invitation to you to visit our campus and experience our warm hospitality and student-centered environment.
