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.
Vis is a really welcoming community. Everyone here is supportive. We can be ourselves with anyone.
