Why Viz

“Be who you are and be that well.” Since 1833, St. Francis de Sales’ words have guided the spirit of Visitation Academy as we discover and celebrate the unique gifts found within the students who walk through our doors.

We offer a foundation upon which children and young women build the knowledge, virtues, and skills to become anything they want to be. Supported by strong Salesian values, Viz students develop a distinct worldview and grow to become curious, creative, and innovative contributors to their communities.

VIZ-IT Us and See for Yourself

A Visitation education nurtures and challenges students as they move through our Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools. Across all schools and departments, faculty members share a focus on our students and their engagement with our curriculum. We understand learning doesn’t only happen in the classroom, and are invested in a student-first approach that emphasizes the creativity and problem-solving skills students will rely on for a lifetime.

We empower young women.

As the region’s only 1-12 all-girls school, we have always known that an all-girls setting provides young women with the encouragement to pursue wider fields of study and achieve higher levels of success.
