St. Mary's Visitation School is an elementary Catholic school containing preschool through sixth grade.
Our goal is to impart to our students in a Christian atmosphere, a solid foundation in the basic areas of knowledge: religion, reading, math, science, and social studies.
St. Mary's Visitation School strives to give the fullest and best opportunity to respond to the teaching mission of the Church.
Recognizing that each child is unique, the school assist in physical, spiritual, psychological and social development of each child placed in its care.
We believe that parents are the primary educators of children.
It is the role of the staff at St. Mary’s Visitation School to work in a partnership with the parents to develop each child to his/her fullest potential in a Catholic Christian atmosphere where the child can understand and apply the Christian values taught both at home and at school.
Together we seek to nurture the spiritual, physical, social, psychological, and educational growth of the child while recognizing the distinctive qualities that make each child unique in the eyes of God.
