The purpose of the Father’s Club is to promote the general welfare of Visitation Academy, and to cooperate with the school to promote the spiritual, intellectual, cultural and physical welfare of their daughters. We are a volunteer organization of Visitation Academy fathers whose mission includes supporting Visitation Academy through fundraising and building community through events.
The Father’s Club works enthusiastically throughout the school year to plan events such as the Family Thanksgiving Dinner, the Father-Daughter and Alumni Valentine Dance, Ice-Skating Day and Field Day. They also sponsor the Advent Tree Lighting event and honor a father with the St Francis de Sales Award for their service to the school. The annual VAFC sponsored dinner/dance Gala night is a fundraiser held in June whose proceeds help to improve the quality of their daughters’ education and to the community.
Meetings are held throughout the school year and all fathers are welcome and encouraged to participate. An exceptional camaraderie exists among men who participate in the Father’s Club for both present and past Visitation families. They develop a special bond that grows during their years at Visitation.
