    I cannot even begin to describe how special this school is. I attended lower, middle and upper school at Visitation and have sent my children to their childcare program. The all-girls environment in the older grades offers such a unique education experience - I held various leadership roles, had the opportunity to participate in many different extracurriculars, and gained confidence in and outside of the classroom. I have been so impressed with the strides they’ve made in recent years in their STEM program and resources. Taking my kids to watch their Robotics team present at the State Fair was so impressive! Their arts program - especially their experienced and incredibly talented theater faculty - is amazing. I simply would not be the person that I am today - personally or professionally - without the skills, education or Salesian foundation that I received at Visitation. I am forever grateful.

    Our daughter attended Visitation and we could not be more pleased! The academics are exemplary and she had a wonderful experience with athletics. We felt as though the faculty genuinely got to know the students and cared greatly about their success and well-being. I have heard others call Vis a "home away from home" for students and that is truely how we have felt.

    Our daughter started at Vis in 7th grade which I would highly recommend. Her middle school experience, which can be challenging for some, was a well-supported and loving environment for our daughter to learn and grow. Also, she was very well-prepared for high school, both academically and socially. There is so much "new" that comes along with being a freshman, it was wonderful that she was already familiar with the school, as well as some of the faculty and administration. This made the transition very smooth.
    Visitation School has a warm, welcoming environment with small class sizes. The co-ed Lower School has the most amazing engaging, innovative and experienced teachers. They are able to meet the needs of all learners with the help of a learning specialist and enrichment specialist. The all girls environment in grades 6-12 provides am excellent education and wonderful opportunities. There are financial aid options available for families as well. I highly recommend this school!
