Setting the Stage...For Life

The arts are essential to the development of both a blossoming intellect and a well-rounded student. Visitation Academy’s Visual and Performing Arts program offers a variety of curricular and extracurricular opportunities for girls and young women exploring the arts, empowering them to recognize and foster their artistic ability and creativity through art, music, dance, and drama.

Our sweeping approach encourages participation in and understanding of the arts, gives students a platform to explore different forms of self-expression, and allows them to discover their true talents and passions.

Whether it’s in the studio, on stage, in class, or after school, Viz’s Visual and Performing Arts program prepares students to “be who they are and be that well,” during their time at Viz and for the rest of their lives.
