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, 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 20 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 through local community colleges in the counties we serve. We provide access to community college courses for qualified students through our Advanced Education Program and our Dual Enrollment Program, where students can take core courses, electives or technical education courses. For many of our students, we also help cover the costs of materials and textbooks for these classes while enrolled allowing them to start earning college credits while still in high school.
Healthcare is currently one of the fastest growing career sectors in California and the nation. The Career Technical Education (CTE) Medical Careers Pathway is a three-course pathway designed for Independent Study and University Prep students who intend to enter the healthcare career field. The curriculum focuses on foundational knowledge and skills needed to be successful in any career involving healthcare. This partnership with Folsom Lake College also includes certifications and guest speakers. Learn more.

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 social services and support for students and families in need. Through Referral Services, Visions connects students to local support services and counseling options. Student Outreach removes barriers so that a student may be successful. This program provides focused services to students seeking support for academics, behavior, attendance, substance abuse, mental health or social issues. Student Outreach is a process – not a curriculum or treatment center – that connects students to services within the school and community to create a network of support. Additionally we’re partnered with Care Solace to provide mental health resources to our students, families and staff.
