Empowering Young Women Since 1846

Learn About the All-Girls Advantage

Inclusive, Diverse and Nurturing

For over 167 years the Visitation Academy has welcomed girls from a variety of religious, cultural, racial and socio-economic backgrounds.
In a time that increasingly challenges girls to remain true to who they are, we support our girls as unique individuals, with varied talents and characteristics who all have a special purpose in their community and our world. Helping them to be the best they can be is not just a goal at the Academy – it is our mission.
