We Want Your Referral

New Vision Charter School is enrolling for the 2021-2022 school year and we want your referral! By simply telling your family and friends all the great things that are happening at New Vision and telling them to enroll you could get your 2021-2022 Student Fees waived. If they enroll and start New Vision in the fall, we will waive your student fees (not including athletic fees). It is a win-win.

Virtual Book Fair

We are so excited for our Virtual Book Fair! This is an awesome way to get books into your kids' hands and support the school at the same time. Check out the below links and watch social media over the next week. You can place your order online on February 14. Help us reach our goal of 313 books.

Valentine's Day Jewelry Fundraiser Update

We raised over $900.00 for the Uganda School of Convoy and Hope with out Valentine's Day Jewelry fundraiser! Because of the large amount of orders and interest there were some hiccups and some people did not receive their orders. If you did not receive your order please reach out to Mr. McNutt at smcnutt@newvisioncharterschool.org so we can ensure we are there to solve any problems.


Thank you all for your generosity, your involvement in this fundraiser has made a profound impact on the lives of many!
