School Notes

  • The faculty and staff of Visitation BVM School, are dedicated to "Teach As Jesus Did" through the integration of message, community and service in the catholic formation and education of our students. We strive for and encourage the development of each person's God-given intellectual, physical, social and personal growth. Aware of each individual's call to holiness, we journey together teacher, parent, adult, teenager, child to accomplish the mission entrusted to us by Jesus, to go forth and proclaim the "Good News" of the Lord's presence and love. Upon these efforts, we ask the blessings of the Holy Trinity, through the intercession of our patroness, Our Lady of the Visitation. 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. Simultaneously, the student demonstrates growth in community through worship and daily living. By experiencing this fellowship, the student grows in his commitment to serve God and others. Our goal in this preschool is to enhance opportunities for learning. We integrate these opportunities for growth within our school community. Each child will develop social, emotional, cognitive and motor skills. Our Catholic school atmosphere allows for spiritual growth.
