Students & Parents Love Visions

“We pulled our son from a brick and mortar public school at the end of his second semester of his 8th grade year. We enrolled with Visions and have never been happier! Our son has blossomed under their guidance, has been in University Prep classes since 9th grade and has made a 4.0 GPA each semester. His confidence has returned, he’s no longer afraid to reach out and make new friends. Next year, he will be in the 11th grade and taking college courses in conjunction with his high school academics.”

PollyVisions Parent

“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.

Visions Parent

“I loved Visions. I took all four years of high school from home because of Visions. They provided me with a laptop so I was able to work easily. I had a great teacher who helped me out by teaching me life skills.” Read more reviews on Niche.

Visions Student

“My grandson would not have graduated but for the attention he received from his teacher. She saw what he could not and helped him in more ways than I could list. He received more than a quality education. Their programs give students opportunities they cannot get in traditional school.”

RafaelaVisions Grandparent

“We have been with Visions for just over a year now and can honestly say…we are happy! Our CT (credentialed teacher) is well educated in the homeschooling path and can advise and support us easily on our journey. Every curriculum request is handled quickly and efficiently and monthly enrichment days are enjoyed by our children.” Read more reviews on Yelp.

JenniferVisions Parent

“Been with them 8 years, each year is better than the last. They give you as much support as you need and want. Both my kids are extremely happy with their education and freedom of learning. Our teacher has had our kids since kinder and knows them so well. Even this many years later we are happy with Visions and all they offer our kids, no other charter compares.” Read more reviews on Google.

JessicaVisions Parent

“I graduated in 2011 and I loved Visions. Visions gave me the one-on-one learning experience I was craving and needing. When I graduated I went from being a D student to a student who made A’s & B’s! I highly recommend Visions.”

AlyssaVisions Graduate

“I have been with Visions since 3rd grade, and I’m in 10th grade now. Honestly, the teachers are great, the curriculum is easy to understand, and it has been an overall outstanding experience for me.” Read more reviews on Niche.

Visions Student

“I loved Visions. The teachers were always there to support, teach, and work with students to succeed. My teachers took the time to get to know me and took a real interest in helping me grow; completely different experience from when I was in public school.” Read more reviews on Niche.

Visions Student

“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.” Read more reviews on Yelp.

I was a home school student through the charter over the course of 12 years, and the dedication to learning is evident.” Read more reviews on Niche.
