After School Programs – Fun For All

By Xavier Serrato

Vision Academy offer services to children from all walks of life with an educational philosophy to guide students to empower themselves. We provide students with an opportunity to learn and enhance their skills in an academically challenging, creative and fun environment so that they can enjoy a bright and successful future.

The Vision Academy is excited to bring our after school program to The Greater Gethsemane Church in Hayes Valley! This beautiful San Francisco church has been a pillar of the community and together we provide a safe and encouraging environment where children will excel.

After successfully running two summer camps this year, Vision Academy is now offering three after school programs in Bay View, Hayes Valley and the Mission District. Each program provides another set of exciting tools and activities that will teach students to learn and enhance their skills in a variety of subjects such as math and will allow them to adapt and communicate with other children and enjoy a large selection of games. Participants have access to the latest technology, such as iPads, which will serve as positive reinforcements for learning. The iPads offer math games, and the kids enjoy using the new technology to learn.

The summer camps opened in June 2011 and offered an excellent learning opportunity for underserved children in the San Francisco area. The summer camp costs $10 for a three hours day.

Vision Academy does not deny services to any family due to the lack of funds, which enables all participants to have access to volunteer instructors that worked with the children for up to 10 hours per day teaching chess, music and art in addition to organizing field trips and sporting events.   Community churches and other local organizations have offered their facilities for the programs to ensure that the after school programs are held in a safe environment.
