    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.

    I am a noncatholic student and do not like it here at all, we have more religious events than anything else at this school and the religion classes here are more than annoyingly vague. It also should be noted that the food here is often undercooked and the meat can be seen as peek quite often. But the academics in the lower school is good considering that they have a "gitfted" class that is great!
    We could not be happier that our daughter is at Visitation. She will be starting her senior year and we are so proud of the woman she is becoming. The academics are rigorous, the teachers and staff are supportive and kind. This Catholic school rooted in Salesian Spirituality has provided our daughter with a solid foundation to build her faith. I cannot say enough about the opportunities for growth at Visitation and the benefits of an all-girl education are many. I have watched my daughter grow and challenge herself with AP classes, leadership roles and new opportunities in Robotics the Arts and Athletics. I know that she will leave Visitation poised and ready to succeed in college and beyond.
