Visitation Academy is a private, Catholic all-girls school located on 7.5 acres of beautiful, enclosed monastic grounds in the heart of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Rooted in the spirit of St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal, a Visitation education emphasizes gentleness to others as well as to self. We are a Middle States accredited school, recognized for our continued academic success. We invite you to explore the special experience that is Visitation.
We pray for and thank those helping battle the coronavirus pandemic.
During these unprecedented times they need to know that we are grateful for their service to others. Our frontline medical personnel face an unprecedented challenge and the best thing we can do in return, other than staying at home, is thank those risking their own health to help others.
Dear Visitation Students,
This time in our world is upside down. It is a time of unknowns and many disappointments. Our school is closed, our activities are canceled, the news we hear is unsettling, and there are many “what-ifs” in our lives. You are doing an extraordinary job dealing with all these stresses and the new routine of remote learning. I am proud of all of you!
In order to help us get through this unprecedented time, it is important to show each other kindness. You have the power to help others feel better – you can show your loved ones kindness in what you do and say. Maybe you FaceTime your grandparents, or cousins; maybe you play a game online with a friend; maybe you set the table for dinner, or clean up your belongings; maybe you say “I love you” or “Thank you” to you parents.
Mother Teresa said: “We cannot all do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” You have the power to help others by your small acts of kindness which show great love.
I continue to be inspired by how you are rising to this new challenge.
