Empowering Our Students to
“Be Who You Are and Be that Well.”
These inspiring words from St. Francis de Sales are as fitting today as they were in 1833 when Visitation Academy was founded in St. Louis, but they are much more than words encouraging students to embrace their individuality and live their best lives. They are the foundation for the knowledge, skills, and virtues we teach at Viz as we prepare our boys, girls, and young women for the rest of their lives.
Each and every student is blessed with their own gifts, and it is our mission to help channel these gifts into opportunities for our graduates to be successful and to positively impact the world. When you step into Viz, you will see just that. Students and teachers sharing with one another and learning from each other. Young people growing as leaders and flourishing as they learn to “Live Jesus.” You will see a community and a spirit that is uniquely and undeniably Viz.
