    Visions in Education was the best school! I had a super flexible schedule and my classes thoroughly prepared me for college. Because Visions in Education is a charter homeschool academy, I was able to take college courses concurrently at my local community college. This helped me prepare for full-time college coursework. Because of Visions in Education, I feel that I am ready, and well equipped, to transfer to UC Davis next fall.

    Visions in Education is a school that allows students to complete their education from home. Although I did not have the chance of playing sports in school, I had plenty of other opportunities. I was able to do plenty of art activities at different locations that really helped me with my artistic skills. Academically, I have no regrets. Visions allowed me to take multiple classes at my local community college that allowed me to prepare for higher education. The staff is great. They are all looking out for the students and want them to do their best. Thanks to them I have just graduated and in my first semester at U.C. Berkeley.
    Throughout my four years in high school, I attended three different schools before I found a school that works for me. I am an artist. I have been a competitive dancer for majority of my life and it was hard to find time to do school while I was training. I soon found Visions In Education
    (a homeschool based school) that was able to work with my dance schedule and prepare me for college. I am beyond grateful for the staff at Visions and I can't wait to embark on this new chapter in my life, as I graduate from high school.
