The Visitation Academy Father’s Club is a tradition of Visitation Academy for over three decades. It is a volunteer organization that works directly with the Board of Trustees, Administration, Mother’s Club, and the Sisters of Visitation to promote the spiritual, intellectual, and cultural quality of life for the student body.
The goal of the V.A.F.C. is to support the Academic community through fundraising and peer building activities that highlight the Academy’s Mission Statement; to empower our students to be morally responsible women of faith, vision, and purpose.
V.A.F.C. is a not for profit 501c and 100% of net proceeds raised returns directly to the Academy.
Participation and support are crucial to the success of the Fathers Club. In the past the V.A.F.C. has been responsible for School renovations, upgrades, and enhancements that are still apart of campus life today. To volunteer please email us your interest. Volunteer efforts can be as dedicated as you like.
The Fathers Club organizes and host several key events, most notably The Advent Tree Lighting and Field Day. Held every December, The Advent Tree Lighting is a Bay Ridge event founded by Larry Moorish and supported by Maimonides Hospital.
At the end of every school year the Fathers Club also host Field Day on the campus. This is a family event held on the Academy’s private campus. It is attended by the student body, alumni, faculty, parents and families, as well as the Sisters of Visitation. Field Day brings together the entire school community to celebrate the end of the school year. The Fathers Club is also responsible for afterschool sports and recreational activities.
