Dear Visitation Families,

I hope you have been enjoying a memorable summer making memories with family and friends!

I also hope that you are relaxed, recharged, and ready to begin a new school year!  I am excited that you are part of our amazing learning community. I welcome and value your POSITIVE energy and dedication to excellence in your academic and faith life.  I look forward to working with all of you!

All signs point to us having an incredible and productive school year.  Our faculty and staff of highly qualified professional educators is planning a challenging curriculum dedicated to serving the needs of all of our students.  The school office staff is registering new families and preparing for the new school year, while our maintenance department has been cleaning and painting our school!

Our faculty has been planning classroom activities that will engage all of our students in their learning.  Our teachers utilize research-based best practices and analyze academic data to set goals for growth and achievement.   We invite and encourage parents to become partners with their child’s teacher in order to have a successful school year.  

The School office will be open Tuesday through Thursday from 9am – 1pm in June and July if you need to contact us. Hours will vary in August. 

Please remember to complete your Summer Reading and Math projects!

JUDE'S ARCADE
What is Jude’s Arcade? The Middle School students have made a life size Caine’s Arcade as part of their STEM Project enjoyed by all! Ann Oro from the Archdiocese was very impressed by the creativity and understanding of STEM by our students. Jude's Arcade included 27 LIFE SIZE games made up of RECYCLED MATERIAL!

What We Think About the Blessed Mother
During Catholic School's Week, some of our students were asked..."What does the Blessed Mother mean to you....?" Check out this video from our students.

Pillars of Character
MIDDLE STATES RE-ACCREDITATION THEME...PILLARS OF CHARACTER. Visitation Academy promotes a Pillar of Character each month. Our prayer is that by instilling these character traits in our students Visitation Academy will create a “culture of kindness” and a positive school climate making Visitation a safe environment for students to learn.

AMAZON SMILE
Amazon Smile program where 0.5% of eligible purchases will go to the school.

Technology News
“I did it!” some exclaimed after successfully navigating characters on the computer screen through a maze. But if you looked a little closer, a computer science lesson was happening.

Visitation...the best school!
....As my study at Felician comes to an end, I have to say that Visitation Academy is the best school that I had ever been placed in as a student teacher. From the moment that I walked into the school, I felt I was welcomed by everyone, including the parents. This is exactly what happens in the Gospel when Mary visits her cousin, Elizabeth. From this perspective, I would say that the community of the Visitation Academy really lives up to its name.
