Why Visitation Academy?

We live our Catholic Faith!



First  and foremost, Visitation Academy  is a community of faith. We practice our faith daily by starting each day with prayer. We know that by developing strong roots of faith, students will not only lead happier and more peaceful lives now, they will also become adults who seek out lives of eternal purpose. Therefore, we offer them every possible encounter with God:

  • Mass every Friday and Holy Day
  • Middle School Adoration weekly

  • Prayer Services throughout the year

  • Religion taught in every grade

  • Exposure to the Rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, Stations of the Cross, particular novenas, and other Catholic devotional practices


Visitation Academy instills in our students the value of serving others.  Throughout the year we work with local food pantries, shelters and St. Jude's Children's Hospital by providing food, toys and donations. We pray for people suffering during natural disasters and hold “dress up” days to raise money to send them.   We provide students countless opportunities to serve others. 

"Love is a one-way street.  It always moves away from self in the direction of the other.  Love is the ultimate gift of our selves to others.  When we stop giving we stop loving, when we stop loving we stop growing, and unless we grow we will never attain personal fulfillment; we will never open out to receive the life of God.  It is through love we encounter God.” 

Saint Mother Teresa
