The Sisters of the Visitation knew 185+ years ago what today’s researchers have confirmed about the value of a single-sex education. These visionary women recognized that educating girls and young women in a separate, academically ambitious setting empowers them to participate wholly in the academic experience, reach higher potential, and build greater confidence.
Time has proven the Sisters correct. Viz students have a deep passion for learning and are among the region’s highest-achieving students. We continue the Sisters' legacy by offering the area’s only all-girl educational environment in Grades 1-5, a dynamic all-girl Middle School for Grades 6-8, and a challenging, all-girl, college-preparatory Upper School for Grades 9-12.
Viz students thrive in a close-knit school community that promotes collaboration, creativity, and the free-flowing exchange of ideas. Viz is small by design which allows our faculty to know you, your hopes, and your unique abilities. Viz is a place where girls and young women may truly be themselves, free to express their feelings and pursue their interests.
