Lower School


There’s something different about Visitation Academy, the only all-girls education in St. Louis for grades 1-5. Viz students exhibit increased self-confidence and leadership qualities. Project-based learning is the foundation of a Viz education, encouraging students to think critically, be creative, analyze, apply, collaborate, communicate, and problem solve—crucial skills for their future in this ever-changing world.

Each morning, every child is greeted by Lower School Principal, Dr. Marlise Albert. She welcomes each student by name with a friendly hello and handshake.
