166 YEARS FOR VISITATION
Brooklyn Visitation Monastery/Academy Celebrates 166 years on September 24
The first location was on Johnson and Pearl Streets and the first student to be registered was Julia Morris, later to become Mrs. John Carroll Foley.
The first building had been the residence of once famous Dominic Johnson.
The first Mother Superior was Mother Juliana Matthews who brought five Sisters with her from Baltimore Visitation Monastery. Two others came six months later.
The second location for Monastery and Academy was at Clinton and Willoughby Avenues
and in 1903 both transferred to Bay Ridge at our present location.
Currently there are 10 Sisters residing in the Monastery and the Academy remains a premiere elementary school.
We give glory to God for establishing His Sacred Heart Sanctuary at Visitation Monastery all these years in our Diocese of Brooklyn!

I was in the graduating class of 1963. Attending the Visitation Academy from 1955-1963 in its Bay Ridge location. It was a wonderful privilege to be educated there. God Bless VA and all the Sisters that taught me❤️

I’m so grateful to have been taught by the genuinely Christlike Sisters of the Visitation

God Bless! Such a beautiful school experience to give a daughter. My sisters and I are all alumni. I was so grateful to be able to give the same experience to my daughter.

I owe my life and faith to the good sisters of the visitation

Happy Birthday to the BEST private school around! So proud to be an Alumnai

Beyond happy to have my daughter attend!

Happy birthday! 9/24 is my birthday too so it is a great day!

Thank you for giving me an excellent education. You gave me a foundation to pass the faith on to generations of students, and showing me how to teach . May God continue to bless you all.

I got the best education from the sisters of VA. My most cherished childhood memories. Live + Jesus

Class of 1965 !! A lifetime ago !! I loved being taught by the nuns. They were very dedicated .

Wonderful memories Class if 1965

Love Jesus and Amen!

Congratulations! <3

Wonderful memories of my school years here at Visitation Academy-graduated in '55. How things have changed since then. My parents NEVER saw a Sister, without a black grate and black curtain between them. Parents never saw their children get promoted to the next grade (quite a ceremony involved)or a final graduation. The sisters were wonderful, we had good times; We were taught well; we learned a lot. God bless all at Visitation Academy.

Good education

🙏🙏🙏❤️💐❤️

🙏❤️🤗

Amen and God bless

❤️❤️❤️❤️
