Fathers’ Club

Membership in this organization is open to fathers and male guardians of all current Visitation Academy students.

The purpose of the Fathers’ Club is to promote the general welfare of Visitation Academy, and to cooperate with the school to promote the spiritual, intellectual, cultural, and physical welfare of the students by:

  1. Cooperating with the Visitation Academy Board and Administration by acting as a liaison between home and school;
  2. Fostering a closer union among parents, faculty, and students by promoting sociability and school spirit; and
  3. Providing a structure through which various projects to benefit the school, students, Sisters, and faculty may be sponsored or implemented.

Fathers’ Club activities and projects that help to achieve the above purpose include “Cook Your Own” Steak Night, Trivia Night, the Father-Daughter Dinner & Dance, Field Day and Carnival assistance, and the establishment of the Fathers’ Club Emergency Financial Aid Funds.

An exceptional camaraderie exists among men who participate in the Fathers’ Club, and these gentlemen develop a special bond that grows during their years at Visitation. Lifelong friendships are often the result of serving on a Fathers’ Club committee or attending a Fathers’ Club event.

Fathers Club events in chronological order:

Welcome Back Event – Viz Dad’s handle the grilling for this back to school social held the week before school begins.

Steak Night– An event just for the Dads’ to meet each other and enjoy conversation and fellowship over a great steak cooked by our school Chef.  This is an opportunity to sign up for volunteer positions, to learn more about Fathers’ Club, meet the FC Board and learn how to get involved.

Golf Tournament – This school sponsored fundraiser supports the Athletic Department and funds many of their needs (new equipment, new uniforms).  The Fathers’ Club coordinates planning with the school Event Coordinator and Advancement Department.

Fall Festival – A family fun event that the FC supports in a variety of ways from security and safety to the BBQ.  Our Viz Dads’ do it all at this event!
