Visitation Academy - St. Louis is an independent, Catholic school offering a coeducational Montessori program in grades Toddler through Kindergarten and an all-girls environment in Grades 1 through 12. The Academy provides an exceptional commitment to educating the minds and hearts of children and young women in the Visitation Salesian tradition. Visitation offers four programs that challenge students to be confident, curious, and creative: a well-established coed Montessori program for Toddler (2-year-olds) through Kindergarten; a strong educational foundation for girls in Grades 1-5; an excellent middle school environment for young women in Grades 6-8; and an outstanding college preparatory program for Grades 9-12 that inspires lifelong learning. Sponsored by the Sisters of the Visitation since 1833, the Academy expresses the spirituality of Visitation’s founders, St. Francis de Sales and St. Jane de Chantal. These saints encourage us to “Live Jesus” with optimism, gentleness, humility, joy, and inner freedom.
