Fusion's summer program
Help your child make the most of summer with our one-to-one summer classes, enrichment programs, and skill-building. Take advantage of flexible scheduling
to customize a program that will let your student maintain momentum, catch up on credits, polish a skill, or get a jump-start for fall.
Our unique one-to-one approach
to teaching, tutoring, and mentoring unleashes the potential of every child to learn in their own way—and it works! It’s what makes Fusion the best place for your student to get ahead this summer, while still allowing time for fun, friends, and family.

Classes for credit
Retake a class, get ahead of peers, ease stress for next year or replace a poor grade on a transcript with our available summer classes for credit. All of our classes for credit are taught with a one-to-one ratio, with curriculum individually tailored to each student’s unique personality and learning style. They are accepted as transferable units by most high schools.
Each student is required to attend 17 instructional sessions per semester, but some courses will require an extension of time to meet graduation requirements. Students can begin a class at any time of the year.
