Visitation Academy is the proud 2010 recipient of a Knott Foundation Education Grant. Promethean boards were just installed in our classrooms. This technology transformation in our classrooms will create a learner-centered, highly interactive environment that supports a multi-sensory approach to learning. The Marion I. & Henry J. Knott Foundation is a Catholic family foundation committed to honoring their founders’ legacy of generosity to strengthen our community and Catholic education.
Visitation Academy students participate in many competitions and contests throughout the school year. We are very proud of their accomplishments:
Our rich curriculum offers students strong academics to fulfill their intellectual pursuits and direct them toward a faith-filled vision of life. In the classroom, we encourage them to build on their strengths and bolster areas that need improvement. Visitation Academy girls live by the Salesian virtues of kindness, gentleness, humility and thoughtful concern of others.
Our school community is an environment where members respect the uniqueness of one another and foster an inclusive and caring school campus. In the spirit of the Visitation Sisters, and the Salesian way, we guide our girls to become self-directed young women whose broad vision of life leads them to offer their gifts of mind and heart in service to those in need.
Our Visitation Academy traditions reinforce the sisterhood that is shared among our girls. Academic pursuits, spirituality and an outreach toward the community are woven into the fabric of the Visitation community. For our girls, school is their home away from home, where high standards, respect and caring, along with a deeper faith are characteristics nurtured and fostered each and every day.
“One kind word wins more willing service than a hundred harsh orders or stern reproofs.”~ St. Francis de Sales
