The St. Louis Archdiocese Application includes a Transcript Release Form. Visitation Academy requires report cards and standardized test scores from the past two school years and the current school year.


After you’ve applied, you will see a link on your application checklist on the Viz Portal to schedule your Family Meeting with a member of our Admission team. Meetings will take place in December.

Admission acceptance letters will be mailed to families on Friday, February 1, 2019.


We realize that the Archdiocesan application to select a 1st choice high school is due November 16, 2018.  Visitation Academy also understands that an estimate of tuition assistance in advance of this might be helpful in your decision. If you feel your financial situation warrants, we encourage you to apply on-line for tuition assistance between Tuesday, October 2 and Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Doing so will allow Visitation Academy to review your tuition assistance application early, so that we can provide you with an estimated range of tuition assistance prior to November 16 when your daughter’s 1st choice high school application is due.

We strive to make the tuition assistance application process comfortable for our families, and please know that your application is confidential. We use School and Student Services (SSS) to process tuition assistance applications and provide preliminary data relative to your family’s financial need. To apply, visit https://sss.secure.force.com/familyportal to complete your Parents’ Financial Statement (PFS). The SSS portal opens October 2, and Visitation Academy’s school code is 1093. If you do not choose to complete your on-line application by November 6, then you should complete it no later than December 31, 2018. Late applicants will be considered if funds remain and may be placed on a waiting list.

Please upload or mail a copy of your 2017 IRS Form 1040 income tax return (including all related schedules and W-2’s) directly to School and Student Services, P.O. Box 449, Randolph, MA 02368-0449 (along with the “Required Documents” cover sheet). Similarly, please also upload or mail a copy of your 2018 IRS Form 1040 income tax return and all related schedules when completed. Tuition assistance awards are contingent upon you providing the required tax documents to this address.

***please note to make sure you are entering information into the 2019-2020 SSS form.
