Thank you, Fusion Academy, for sponsoring this post.

It wasn’t until I had children of my own that I realized how many options there are for educating my kids. I figured there were public schools and private schools — I never knew there were so many other ways students could learn and be taught. We know children learn differently, and we are beginning to better understand that a one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t necessarily work anymore.

What is Fusion Academy?

Fusion Academy in Newton is bridging this gap with an innovative learning concept that works for all students. Fusion boasts a one-to-one student-to-teacher ratio for middle school and high school students. Students are able to learn at their own pace, on their own time, with an educational program that is tailored to them and their needs.  

Why Fusion?

The beauty of one student to one teacher at a time is that the students are able to truly focus on their strengths and work on their weaknesses to learn in a way that is optimal to their own needs. There are over 300 courses available in the Fusion curriculum, giving students the opportunity to take the state-required courses and enjoy a variety of enrichment classes that are much better suited to their personal needs and interests.

Throughout my tour of Fusion in Newton, the word “cool” kept coming out of my mouth, which is not a way I’ve ever described a high school before! First, it’s a welcoming and inviting space with lounge areas, lots of fun touches, and a warm, welcoming homelike decor and floor plan. Also, the students I saw were so happy and so unique.

Who is Fusion for?

Students come to Fusion for a variety of reasons — some are athletes who need to use traditional school time to practice, some have gotten lost in the big world of education, some are coming back from illness, and some are students with learning differences. There are students who are gifted, students who have learning differences, and everyone in between. Fusion is really for all students, and it bridges a gap in education that helps students excel in their own way. 

At Fusion, students have a lot more freedom with their schedules and day-to-day learning, helping them become more responsible and confident. With a customized learning plan that suits their needs, they develop a lifelong love of learning.

Fusion Academy recently opened in Newton and is enrolling students now.
