Visions Program at Rivendell

On December 13, 2011, the Visions Afterschool Program hosted a site visit from the State of Vermont 21st Century team. They spent the day talking to staff, students and administrators about Visions, and used the afternoon to visit our three afterschool programs. We received very high marks for the programming we provide our students. They were impressed with our staff and inspired by our kids. We were highly commended for our structure and organization at all three sites. They said we have set the bar “very high” and are doing an outstanding job serving families in the Rivendell district. A heartfelt thanks to all of you for your commitment and support of Visions. This program is outstanding because of those who volunteer their time and effort.


Community Service

Community service is very important to all of us at Rivendell. We ask students to take part in atleast one workshop during the year (one hour a week) to help the people and places around our towns. Please encourage your child to share with the Rivendell community.


Video clips from the Visions Program

Students from the Thayer School of Engineering are working with Rivendell Visions students to get kids excited about math and science. During this trip they built towers, boats, and rockets. 

The VISIONS program runs according to the District calendar, beginning in early September and ending in June (ask about our summer program). VISIONS operates Monday-Wednesday from 3-5:30pm, and on Thursday from 1:45-5:30pm. We have different enrichment activities every day and because of the small setting, we are able to plan monthly themes. Some students come once or twice a week, and some come everyday. The Visions Director and Site Coordinator works hard to enlist community members, teachers, and highschool students to present and their special areas of interest, talent, and expertice to share with the students.

The Visions program offers wonderful opportunities for students to grow and learn about so many different things. It provides homework, reading, and social help to students, and assists many families with afterschool supervision. We are very fortunate that we are able to offer these opportunities for the children of our town.
