Welcome from Our Principal
In 1891, six Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters left their Wisconsin motherhouse, making their way to the Southside of Chicago. The story of Visitation Catholic School had begun. Classes were held in the basement of the church, but quickly grew beyond its capacity. By 1905, an elementary school was built, and in 1915, Vis added an all girls’ high school to the community. Today, Visitation Grade School is housed in the former high school building, continuing the traditions of educational excellence and community involvement that Vis is known for.
Becoming a member of the Vis family is about more than just education, it is finding a community and a faith that provide support and empowerment for your student and your family.
We believe that education is the expression of a mission entrusted to the church by Jesus Christ and that this begins through collaborative relationships that allow our multi-cultural community to come together in faith, with the shared purpose of leading our children to success.
