Mission & Philosophy

Visitation School is a co-ed, Catholic Elementary School for students in Junior Kindergarten through 8th grade. We have been providing a quality Catholic education for students since 1947.

Our Mission Statement is to provide our students with a Catholic education in a Christ-centered and child-centered environment where Christ is the reason for our existence, the model of our faculty, and the inspiration of our students.

The purpose of Visitation Catholic School is to focus on the basic truth that the aim of Catholic education is the education of the whole child. The faculty believes that each child is endowed by God with special talents and gifts, and that it is the duty of each educator to help the child discover and develop these gifts.

In the school’s Faith Community, many people are working together: priests, parents, teachers, students and the entire parish community. It is recognized that “Parents must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children” (1 Document of Vatican II). The faculty, therefore, works in partnership with the parents in pursuit of the school’s goal.

The faculty adheres to the three-fold purpose of Catholic education by the teaching of doctrine, the building and experiencing of community of being of service to others. The faculty believes that students must have instruction in this knowledge and be directed to contribute to the Faith Community, looking to Christ as the center of all that is of value in this life and in the next.
