    Visitation is a perfect place for developing young women in academics and in life. Our daughter has thrived in this environment with strong academic rigor and multiple activities given the smaller size of the school. We are confident she will be prepared for college and life with her Vis experience. We believe this investment in her education will probe out to be a supurb decision. She just completed her freshman year and can’t wait to get back to school...so refreshing to hear as parent! Her confidence, gentle strength and positive attitude attitude towards academics is a direct result of her Vis experience. Highly recommend Vis!

    I love Vis! It's truly a second home. The academics are very rigorous, but the community is there to support you (whether that be teachers helping you during tutoring, friends proof-reading your essay, etc). One thing I would like to see change about Vis is the diversity. It is a predominantly white institution, and I definitely think Vis could do better with outreaching to schools of greater diversity. The food is also pretty good for "school lunch food." I especially love "just because days" where stuck orders in Jamba Juice, shamrock shakes, or a special pasta lunch. I love the all girls aspect of Vis as well.
    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.
