Registration is open for the first 100 Visitation and PREP students in 6th, 7th or 8th grade Our speech program runs for 9 sessions on Sunday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in our Jr High School. During the first half of the program, cycle 1, participants are given an excerpt from a famous speech to prepare and present. The second half of the program, cycle 2, is dedicated to oral interpretation of literature. In other words, the student prepares and presents material that is of personal interest. Since our time is short, speech team members must be committed to attending all 9 sessions and complete all at home assignments. Parents must be willing to work with their sons and daughters at home by watching them practice their speeches and helping them to do the research for their original pieces.The moderators try to make speech a fun experience, but it is by no means a social gathering time. It is a great opportunity for young people who want to improve their public speaking skills. Students are required to memorize both their excerpt and original pieces which means, that they will need to dedicate time at home to this program. We often have over 100 students involved; so students and parents need to be aware of the time and commitment of the adult and teenage volunteers who keep the speech team going. Students are required to respect the classrooms that the teachers so graciously allow us to use and the moderators who are giving of their time and expertise. Under the discretion of the moderators, a participant could be asked to leave the program if they are not abiding by the standards.
Final evening, is an evening set aside for the speech team members to show their talents to you, their parents. It is a formal event and only "Sunday best" should be worn by the participants. Being a part of Final Evening is also a mandatory requirement.
Open to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students of Visitation BVM or PREP students. This group will develop the social, spiritual and service side of our CYO program. We will organize local service projects throughout the year, social events and some spiritual opportunities, all run for and with our children.

Registration for our sports teams & programs are held before each season. Registration is the responsibility of the parents and children. We have tried to make this as easy as possible. Because of the volume of participants we must insist that you register in the time allocated so that we can have enough time to prepare the rosters for each team in each season. We advertise the dates on our website, this registration page, the Church bulletin, the school's One Call Now email, PREP's email and our own CYO email blasts. Registration is only conducted online via our website. The system will allow for registration during the advertised period only. You may pay for your registration with most major credit cards online. Registration typically takes place over a 2-3 week period.
