Visitation Academy, founded in 1855, reflects the mission of the Sisters of the Visitation.
This mission centers around life itself through the development of key relationships with God, self, others, and creation.
The heart of a Visitation education is rooted in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales.
Respect for the individual through the virtues of gentleness and humility is imparted in an environment of love and tradition.
Visitation Academy provides a unique learning environment for the education of young girls.
Visitation is located on 7.5 acres of monastery ground in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
The old world charm of our physical setting houses a dynamic educational program that prepares our girls to be responsible women of tomorrow.
An integrated curriculum, infused with moral and religious values, empowers our students to meet the challenges and demands of the new millenium.
