OUR LADY OF THE VISITATION SCHOOL 
MISSION AND BELIEFS STATEMENT

Our Lady of the Visitation School is a diocesan Roman Catholic School operated by the parish of Our Lady of the Visitation. Taking as our motto, "Different gifts, but the same Spirit," we strive to create a mutually respectful and compassionate Christian community in which each individual's talents are recognized and nourished and seen as significant to the building of the Kingdom.
  • We are dedicated to providing a well-rounded quality education in a value-centered environment. Through academics, prayer and worship the staff and families of Our Lady of the Visitation work to impart to our children the Catholic traditions and faith and to live the Gospel message of Jesus Christ by serving the church and the broader community.
  • We believe that administrators, teachers, parents, students and the parish community share the responsibility for advancing the school's mission.
  • We believe that each student is a valued individual with unique physical, social, emotional and intellectual needs.
  • We believe that education awakens for our students a sense of a global world wherein they can experience a God that is active and working in their lives.
  • We believe that all children can learn and that optimum learning takes place when students are actively engaged and are in a safe and comfortable environment.
  • We believe that children learn in different ways, and that a variety of instructional approaches should be used to support their different learning styles.
  • We believe that education empowers children to be aware of their abilities, goodness, dignity, talents and spirituality, and to use these gifts to serve God.
  • We believe that special emphasis must be placed on developing a dynamic faith that expresses itself in love of God and service to others and culminates in the building of a truly Catholic community.

Our school currently has 746 students in grades 1-8 for the 2017-2018 school year.  We comply with the Decree on Child Protection as promulgated by the Archbishop of Cincinnati.
