Gifted Students Looking to Accelerate

Gifted, twice-exceptional, and other students who want to accelerate their learning thrive in Fusion Academy’s one-to-one classrooms. Beyond instruction, Fusion teachers also act as mentors in this personalized environment.

Personalized Support for Twice-Exceptional and Gifted Students

Gifted and twice-exceptional students can often be overlooked in a large classroom. Unfortunately, because the student is unchallenged or bored in class, families are sometimes alerted because of behavior problems or failing grades even though the student is highly intelligent.

In Fusion Academy’s one-to-one classrooms the student is the center of attention and the teachers are able to personalize each class just for them. Students can move at an accelerated pace and have the ability to dig deeper into subjects they are passionate about.

Middle School and High School Enrollment Options

Fusion Academy offers both middle school and high school courses for twice-exceptional and gifted students. At Fusion, we understand how twice-exceptional and gifted issues affect learning and we have developed strategies for middle and high school students. Students can also have either full-time or part-time schedules at Fusion Academy.

“Our son struggled in the traditional high school setting. He is very bright, but lost focus with social distractions, and had trouble with accountability and self-motivation… Our son thrived in the one-to-one classroom setting and began earning straight A’s. He was also able to take classes at an accelerated rate and graduated a year ahead of schedule. He loved his teachers, learned time management, became self-motivated, and decided he wanted to study engineering in college. He applied to eight engineering programs and was accepted to six of them.

He received an academic scholarship at Ohio State University, the largest university in the country, and started as a 17-year-old. I was worried about the size of the school after attending Fusion, but he had no problem with the transition. That was almost four years ago. Now he is graduating with a degree in Computer Engineering, is on the Engineering Dean’s List, and will be working for Amazon as a Software Engineer. Fusion was absolutely the foundation of my son’s success. They truly help students find their best selves!”

Lisa Bayindirli, Fusion Solana Beach Parent

“Our son has unique needs as a “Twice Exceptional” student, and we have found the teachers and staff at Fusion to be flexible with his course scheduling and over and above supportive and caring about his wellbeing (and that of our entire family) in addition to his academic and social success. He has had classes with many of the different teachers at Fusion over the years and each one has worked with us to tailor the approach to the required curriculum in a way that best suits his learning needs and style.

We have been very impressed with the skill level of the Fusion teachers, both to push our son in the areas where he is gifted and to provide access to regular extra sessions to address his learning disability. Each one has had a slightly different style, but all of his teachers have worked with him in a way that he becomes a part of the plan/invested member of his own learning team, which drives his academic success on both 2-E fronts simultaneously. This is something we were not able to attain in our public school system despite the fact that our county offers a robust 2-E Gifted/Talented + Learning Disabled program at all grade levels. ”
