About us
Over 20 years ago Fusion Academy started as a single, unique private school in the San Diego area. Fusion Education Group has replicated that school and now supports fifty campuses.

Each Fusion Academy is an accredited, one-to-one private school for grades 6 through 12. But we’re so much more than that. We’re a community of learning dedicated to
 creating a supportive environment where every student can flourish – emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Our teaching approach is unique and effective: one student and one teacher for the whole class period. This lets us present course material in a focused environment, at a pace and in a style that suits each student’s individual interests, strengths, and challenges.

Fusion is a unique place to work and teach. We believe that teaching and learning should be fun! So start a parade down the hall or wrap your classroom in tin foil! (If you can’t embrace that kind of wackiness, Fusion may not be for you…) “Fusionites” are creative and embrace change. We build relationships every moment, every day with students, their parents, and other Fusionites. Diversity is embraced and openness matters.


We also believe that teaching is a calling, and not a job. Some of our teachers have teaching licenses but some do not and are content experts. We come from diverse backgrounds including special education, traditional teaching, tutoring, and life experience. We all have at least a bachelor’s degree, and many have master’s degrees or professional degrees.
