Challenging and Empowering
Following an in-depth study of current research, Visitation Academy formally defined our Middle School program to best meet the needs of girls in Grades 6-8. The program builds a bridge from childhood to young adulthood, with high yet achievable academic expectations as its cornerstone. Viz Middle School faculty members work closely with students to supplement classroom learning with real-world skills not found in a textbook. Students are guided in making choices and are fully engaged in the learning process. We teach that there is true strength in the critical thinking, communications, and collaboration our students show at school and that these competences have endless applications.
Our unique educational philosophy and supportive, faith-based learning environment sparks curiosity and imparts lifelong learning skills. Middle School classrooms are active, hands-on centers of learning that utilize a combination of experiments, demonstrations, simulations, and projects.
