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.

I am very appreciative of how helpful Visions In Education (VIE) has been to me, over the years. From my experience with them, they have provided everything I ever needed involving curriculum. All school books and materials I ever needed were funded by VIE. I am currently enrolled, as a Senior, with the school. I have been part of VIE for over 7 and half years. My Credential Teacher (Koreen Deller)is always helpful, encouraging, and has made sure that I'm aware of all assignments (LPs) that are done or need to be completed at a certain time. In addition, this school has allowed me to learn so much from the variety of curriculum provided, and allowed me to learn at my own pace. I'm very excited about graduating from this school, later this month.
Visions in Education is an amazing charter school with a lot of opportunities for its students. Many of the students take part in an independent study program that prepares us to head straight to a 4-year University. Other participate in studies with a main teacher whom watches over all of their subjects. The only that I hope they will change in the future is having more activities in the East Bay. Most of the activities and classes are in Sacramento, Vallejo and Carmichael.
