Our Mission

Guided by a fundamental belief in the immense potential within every person, our mission is to help each student flourish – emotionally, socially, and academically – through positive, mentoring relationships and a personalized education experience.

Our History

Michelle Rose Gilman founded Fusion Academy out of frustration with the status quo, and a need for personalized education in her community. What began with one campus in Solana Beach, California in 1989 expanded to add a Los Angeles campus in 2010 through the help of what is now Fusion Education Group. Since then, Fusion has expanded to over 80 campuses across the country and changes the lives of thousands of families each year.

Our One-to-One Learning Model

Personalized Education

Students learn best when they feel safe, cared for, engaged, and confident in themselves as learners. We believe positive, authentic relationships are the key to unlocking the incredible potential each and every student has.

Our thoughtfully designed approach of love, motivate, teach, sets a strong foundation of trust and understanding.

Our Education Philosophy:


Love: Students must first feel safe and understood to learn, which happens through a trusting, authentic relationship with their teacher.


Motivate: After a trusting relationship is built, teachers know what motivates their student, and the student is open to learning.


Teach: All teaching is personalized to the student’s strengths, interests, and learning preferences.
