Each model, Futures Academy, Fusion Academy, and Fusion Global Academy, offers fully accredited courses, 1:1 learning, and an individualized and flexible educational plan to accommodate each student's unique needs.

Our largest network, 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 our schools 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, the model is simple - through compassion and acceptance, Fusion students learn on their terms, on their schedule, and in their learning style.

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 program.

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 growth.
