“What drove me to switch to Visions In Education was the flexibility. I can better flex with my other commitments and create a balanced routine to be able to achieve my goals. I love the school and the many ways I can get involved.”

“Just graduated last year from Visions. I had an amazing experience and don’t think I could’ve done it without Visions! If you’re thinking about joining this school, DO IT!”

“Visions In Education is an excellent option for those who struggle in the traditional school setting. We never thought that our son would take the initiative that he’s taking to finish his assignments. He also receives more one-on-one time with his teacher than he ever did at his other high school. Considering Visions? It’s worth checking out!”  Read more reviews on GreatSchools.

“It has been a great experience being a student at Visions, and I would have enrolled as soon as I discovered them if I had known about them earlier. I was particularly impressed with how welcoming and helpful they were, which was vital to my success as a recent immigrant.”

“Visions is really the best of both worlds because you get the guidance of a credentialed teacher, the funds to tailor your child’s education to their interests, and the flexibility of a home school schedule. Your teacher is just there to bounce off ideas, help with resources, help with curriculum, and make sure your child is on track with CA guidelines for grade level.”
