Academics

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia Curriculum Committees guide the Visitation BVM School Course of Study. These guidelines insure academic continuity. Grade level and content area dictate specific methods and procedures. Traditional methods are combined with the most up-to-date teaching strategies. “Curriculum” is defined as a “plan for action” that includes strategies for achieving desired goals or ends. “School curriculum” is, therefore, an organized set of formal education and/or training intentions. In addition, “curriculum” encompasses the experiences of the learner, under the guidance of administrators and teachers.

Finally, an understanding of “curriculum” must include subject matter or content and the way the material is assimilated and organized across grade levels.
