Founded in 1799 and located on a beautiful 23-acre campus, Georgetown Visitation is the oldest Catholic school for young women in the 13 original States.
A talented and committed faculty provides a dynamic and well-balanced educational program that challenges students both spiritually and intellectually. This is enhanced by a student-teacher ratio of 13:1 and an average class size of 18 students. With four state-of-the-art computer labs, an LCD projector in every classroom and individualized web portals for every student, Visitation is a leader in teaching with technology. Visitation offers a core curriculum, Advanced Placement and Honors courses, electives and a Georgetown University Bridge Program for qualified seniors. With more than 30 co-curricular activities, 21 athletic teams, a lively performing arts program, retreats, service opportunities, traditions and regular guest speaker assemblies, life for Visitation students is lively, stimulating and rewarding.
Georgetown Visitation offers need-based tuition assistance to families who complete a Parents' Financial Statement. In 2012-13 Visitation will award over $1,700,000 in aid, in amounts ranging from $1,000-$16,000. A select group of incoming freshmen applicants who possess the strongest overall profiles is selected as Visitation Scholars and receive $2,500 toward their tuition each year. Call the admissions office for more information. Students may also apply for tuition assistance, based on financial need, through the Archdiocese of Washington.
Visitation is in the heart of historic Georgetown. Most students carpool, but public bus transportation is available from several Metro stops.
