Vis provides an excellent education within a Catholic environment permeated by Salesian Spirituality and the Living tradition of the visitation sisters.
We are an independent Catholic school founded in 1873 by the Sisters of the Visitation of Holy Mary. We educate boys and girls from Montessori Pre-K through grade five and all-girls in grades six to twelve. A Visitation education in more than just academic achievement; it's about growth and wholeness in mind, body and spirit. We provide an education that is not for school, but for life. Learn more about sending your child to Visitation.
"I love how accepting the girls at Vis are. The girls in my class have really become not only my friends but my sisters and these are friendships that I'll cherish forever. They encourage me to be the best version of myself and push me to try new things, go outside of my comfort zone, and grow as a person."
Ella, 12th grade
"I am a very creative and artistic person, and I love bringing that into the classroom. Theater, dance and art are areas I enjoy teaching to my students because it allows students, especially young ones, to express themselves in ways they never thought they could."
Nikko Raymo, Montessori Plus Teacher
"I love the Vis community. I can be confident about who I am when I'm around the girls in my class."
Olivia, 10th grade
I love the community here at Vis! Everyone is kind and outgoing. My favorite thing is going to all-school events like the pep rallies, Winter Week, and many other fun activities. I love seeing everyone come together to support Vis! Overall, I love everything about Vis, but these are the events and moments that make my experience special.
