What is the Wellness program?
Fusion’s wellness program rounds out the academic experience for our students, providing a greater balance and offering opportunities for social, emotional, and personal growth. It stresses self-discovery, physical awareness, and exploration.
Who should attend?
Students attend a total of 20 sessions across four wellness elements—Art Expression, Healthy Habits, Music Expression, and Physical Wellness—as part of a customized program to achieve a more balanced life. This can be needed for a number of reasons, such as high stress, anxiety, low self-esteem, poor body image, social pressure, or substance abuse issues.
