Sadly absent from this article is any discussion of how Visitation will infuse Catholic teachings into a course on Women’s Studies. Surely an all-girls Catholic high school would include, if not focus on, JPII’s work on the Feminine Genius and other Catholic scholarly work regarding the importance of women in the church. My daughters are a long way from high school but Vis is on our list for consideration. I’m thrilled Vis is offering this course if for no other reason than the content of the course will make it clear whether Vis is a place where my daughter will receive an education firmly rooted in the teachings of the Church.

I know a family of a Vis girl: Awesome kid with a moral compasses, kind, an artist and athlete, compassionate, caring, helpful, fun, a 3.5 GPA, and a 32 on the ACT. What an awesome school. America is in good hands with young women like this.

It is too bad this type of education is only available for the elite. The cost to send your daughter to this school is over $20,000 per year. The school is awesome, why can't public school's take note and try to better, rather than simply sit on their hands. Poor kids need a good school too.
