Welcome to Fusion Academy Pasadena Downtown
Futures Academy in downtown Pasadena, California is in the process of changing its name to Fusion Academy Pasadena Downtown throughout the 2022-2023 school year. We will continue to offer the same quality one-to-one education experience focused on supporting your student’s skills, interests, needs, and learning preferences.
Fusion Pasadena Downtown is an accredited private school where classes are one-to-one: one student and one teacher. Students may attend full-time for middle and high school or part-time with classes for credit, tutoring and mentoring, post-secondary counseling, and more.
Hear Directly From Families
Fusion Academy Parent Promise
We know switching schools is a tough decision. For new full-time students, we offer The Parent Promise: if you are not satisfied with your student’s improvement at Fusion during their first 30-days of attending classes, we will fully refund your tuition for that period.
Attending Fusion Pasadena Downtown
Every part of the Fusion Academy experience is personalized for each individual student. It is this approach that makes us the most engaging private school in the nation. Our thoughtfully designed approach of love, motivate, teach, allows us to first get to know each student and build a program customized for their strengths, interests, and learning preferences.
Students take classes with teachers who tailor instruction to their interests and academic goals. Our one-to-one instruction help students grow academically and socially.
Homework Café®/Guided Study
Instead of taking it home, coursework can be completed on campus. These spaces are monitored by a teacher who is available to provide support and mentorship. This is also where clubs meet, student meetings are held, and where students can interact with their peers between classes. Socialization happens where it should: outside the classroom.
Supplemental Part-Time Options
Fusion also welcomes students who have a primary school but are seeking premium one-to-one classes, tutoring, or academic support. Fusion students also can supplement their learning with these options beyond their full-time program.
Classes for Credit
Students can choose from over 250 classes to take for credit. This is a great way to catch up or remediate lost credits or take a tough class in a more personalized environment.
Tutoring and Mentoring
Our teachers are our tutors and are subject matter experts in what they teach. For students who need additional support in a subject, our tutoring and mentoring can help them succeed.
We offer one-to-one post-secondary counseling sessions to help students prepare for life after high school. Our counselors can help with college applications, essay writing, exploring gap year programs, and more.
Our campus is a connected community where students experience more than academics. The Homework Café Director plans programming to align with Social-Emotional Learning competencies and personalizes events based on student interests.
Campus Activities and Clubs
Staff and students collaborate to create experiences that are inclusive and based on student interests.
Students have opportunities like prom, field trips, service activities, and more.
Fusion students and families are part of a national network of 60+ Fusion campuses. Students and parents are invited to participate in national webinars and virtual events.
