To help students succeed
Visions offers a variety of support services to help our students succeed. We ensure our students have access to many opportunities that not only strengthen their personalized learning experience, but improve their interpersonal and technological skills, too. We offer student clubs, weekly events, community college opportunities, creative writing classes, social services and Career Technical Education partnerships. Learn more about what we offer below.
At Visions, we believe that extracurricular activities are just as important as academics. By joining a club or attending a weekly event students can develop new skills, make friends with similar interests and have fun. We’re proud to offer over 60 student clubs for a variety of different interests like basketball, photography, running, reading, STEAM, the environment, cooking, the military, teen parenting and more! Learn more about our clubs, groups and events here.
We support student success by creating higher education opportunities. We provide access to community college courses for qualified students through Dual Enrollment Programs. Students can choose from a list of approved courses taught virtually by college professors. For many of our students, we also help cover the costs of materials and textbooks for these classes while enrolled allowing them to simultaneously earn college and high school credits. Learn about all the community college options available to Visions students here.
Career Technical Education (CTE) provides courses that integrate technical training and academics to help students develop the knowledge needed to transition to career training, college and the workforce.

Visions offers the Medical Careers CTE Pathway to Independent Study and University Prep students who intend to enter the growing healthcare career field.

Success Through Education Mentoring (S.T.E.M) is a partnership between the University of California, Davis and Visions In Education. Visions students meet one-on-one with UC Davis student mentors to receive support and valuable information about college life and success. The program recruits UC Davis undergraduates from a variety of majors and high school students who are committed to this year-long program. College mentors are a wonderful resource for high school students and participants in our program can look forward to building lifelong friendships. The mentors and Visions high school students meet monthly to foster professional development, confidence, leadership and determination.
Visions offers a broad range of support services tailored to meet the diverse needs of our students. Our dedicated team includes social workers, school counselors, a foster and homeless liaison and more to provide pivotal and specialized services. We believe that education is not just about academics but also about addressing the unique circumstances of each student. Additionally we’re partnered with Care Solace to provide mental health resources to our community. Learn more.
This writing class is designed to manifest a creative, but safe environment for students in grades 6-12 to realize that we are all writers. Students read, discuss and write during class. Students have the opportunity to share their work, but it’s never required. All work written in class is treated as fiction and all feedback is positive. Students are allowed to blossom as writers and discover their writing voice in a structured environment in which new writing is treated gently and with honor. The high school class culminates with the publication of a book in partnership with 916 Ink and the middle school class creates an anthology. Learn more and watch a video of our writing students here.
