Visiting

Part of the admissions process for Visitation School includes a student visit day. This gives you, the student, an opportunity to get to know what life at Vis is like, and it gives our students, teachers, and enrollment staff an opportunity to get to know you!

Questions about visit days or the admissions process? Please contact Mirella Miller, Laura Hester or Sarah Aamodt in our Enrollment Office (651-683-1700). We are here from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

We can’t wait to meet you and get to know you better!
