About the Organization Fusion Academy is a revolutionary
alternative, accredited private school for grades 6-12 that offers
a fully individualized classroom: one student, one teacher. As the
nationwide leader in one to one schooling, Fusion Academy has
campuses throughout the country.
Every student at Fusion is unique - some students are
accelerated learners; some need flexible scheduling; and others
have special learning needs due to attention challenges, learning
differences, or social and emotional difficulties. No matter why
students come to Fusion, our model is simple - through compassion
and acceptance, Fusion students learn on their terms, on their
schedule, and in their learning style.
Our model is a unique academic program offering services
year-round on a rolling admissions basis. Our environment is highly
personal and socially inclusive. Equal emphasis is placed on
students' emotional well-being as it is on academic achievements.
In addition to full time enrollment, students at Fusion Academy may
take a class for credit or enroll in our tutoring/mentoring
The Fusion culture offers a special place to work, teach, and
learn. Fusionites are a special brand of educators--they are
creative, passionate, embrace change, and have fun! They
communicate honestly and with compassion to both students and
colleagues. People join the Fusion family for more than just a
paycheck; they seek to work with peers who share these values. And
because Fusion is growing rapidly, we offer considerable
opportunity for career advancement throughout the country.
