Visitation Bvm School

Forged in Catholic Christian values, it is the mission of Visitation B.V.M. School to partner with our families to educate, develop, and nurture life-long learners who will become leaders of the global community through academic excellence, stewardship, and service.
Community is the heart of Catholic education.  This sense of community is initiated within the home and is complemented, reinforced, and extended in the faith community.
The adult Christian community with which the student comes in contact provides a model exemplifying the Gospel spirit of peace, love, and respect for others.
Participation in the Eucharistic celebration fosters a sense of unity within each student.
By experiencing this fellowship, the student grows in his commitment to serve God and others.
We integrate these opportunities for growth within our school community.
