With all the recent school cuts, we were confident we wanted our daughter to attend a well-rounded school which offered the arts, languages, physical education, and religious education. To this day, we say choosing Visitation was the BEST decision we have ever made as parents! The teachers are committed to teaching and students learning, parents are extremely involved, and the principal provides great leadership!

My family and I researched many area schools - both public and private prior to enrolling our son into Visitation. Over the past two years, we have been thrilled with the administration, faculty, and parent involvement. Visitation offers extensive programs that many public schools have dropped. Visitation provides a positive, supporting atmosphere where my child can prosper.

My family and I researched several Catholic in the area before we chose Visitation. We love the Principal. He is didicated and passionate about Catholic education. The teachers and small classes really have made the difference.

Visitation Catholic School is absolutely the best in every way. The small class size, academic standards and excellent staff add to the value of the school. The school is very focused on reading from K-8. Children have opportunity to participate in music, art, Spanish, PE, computers and more! Parent participation is a must as with any private school, you need to be involved.

I love this school. My daughter is not only learning at a higher level than public schools, she is also learning at very early age respect for herself and others. The class size is small and even with some growth the class size would be kept below 20. The teachers honestly care about these children. The teachers also take the time to get to know children in other grades. There is a strong sense of community as well as faith.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
