School Notes

  • Fusion Academy is a revolutionary private middle and high school where all classes are one-to-one: one student and one teacher per classroom. This allows for the personalization of curriculum and instruction for each student's individual strengths, interest, and learning style. This unique, relationships-based education model began with one school in Solana Beach, CA, and now there are over 40 campuses across the country.  Each campus is unique but has a similar vibe and culture as the original Solana Beach campus. It includes a state-of-the-art recording studio and mixed-media art studio for students to express their creativity. There are also two Homework Cafe spaces, one silent and one social, where students complete their homework before leaving for the day. The educational experience at Fusion is completely customized to ignite a student's passion for learning. Classes are self-paced, and course materials are presented in ways that suit students individual interest, strengths and challenges. It was modeled around the needs of students who weren'r finding their place in more traditional school environments whether they struggled with mild learning differences, social or emotional issues, the rigid scheduling of more traditional schools, or the boredom of a classroom not geared to accelerated learners. From algebra to yoga and everything in between, Fusion offers over 250 middle and high school courses, all of which meet state standards.Classes are available at three levels: essential, college prep, and honors. Fusion teachers have also created classes for students if there is something students would like to learn that isn't available in their catalog, while still adhering to state standards. Along with personalized curriculum, Fusion's one-to-one teaching model also allows for the customization of scheduling. Students may enroll at any time of the year, and take classes at a time of day that works best for them, which appeals to students who have demanding schedules outside of school because of sports or artistic involvement. Some students enroll full time, while others utilize Fusion's classes-for-credit or tutoring and mentoring services. Families also turn to Fusion to support their homeschooling efforts by taking classes for credit like world languages and lab sciences. While it's impossible to put our students into categories, we generally serve students with the following backgrounds: ADHD, accelerated/gifted learners, mild learning differences, social challenges, school anxiety, or students with challenging schedules. Students who attend Fusion have one thing in common: traditional school isn't working.
