Visitation celebrates new commons area

On March 17, the Convent of the Visitation School cele­brated the grand opening of Heart of the School, a new multilevel commons area connecting several wings of the campus. As the new main entrance, the addition features a stained-glass window and display area honoring sisters who founded the school in 1873. New gathering areas feature spaces to relax and study. The renovated library includes a media lab with television-quality equipment for video and audio production. The project also includes updates to heating, cooling, water and security systems. Heart of the School includes 11,000 square feet of renovated space and 14,600 square feet of new construction.

In January 2013, the school also opened Opus Hall STEM Center, a new building focused on science, technology, engineering and math. Together, the two construction projects comprise Visitation Heart and Mind, a $10.5 million initiative.

The Convent of the Visitation School is a private, Catholic pre-K-12 school in Mendota Heights. The school is coed through sixth grade and enrolls all girls in grades seven through 12.
