A Personalized Free Trial of Fusion!
There’s nothing like experiencing the power of personalized education first-hand. Your child can enjoy a one-hour free trial session to see what one-to-one learning is like at Fusion Academy. They’ll get to spend time with a teacher/mentor and see if Fusion is a good fit for them. This is a great way to see if your child wants to take a summer class or enroll for the fall school year all of which would be entirely personalized to them.
