(San Antonio – January 11, 2022) The opening of the first Fusion Academy campus here offers a new education option for San Antonio families seeking a personalized and accredited school for their middle and high schoolers that is equally focused on academic progress and social and emotional health.
“We are thrilled to be teaching in San Antonio!” said Lynique Charles, Head of School at Fusion Academy San Antonio. “Opening a new school is exhilarating. We’ve been so warmly welcomed and are delighted to join the vibrant education community.”
Founded in San Diego, California in 1989, Fusion Academy’s approach to learning is grounded in its one-to-one model of one teacher to one student, with different teachers for different classes. Fusion Academy San Antonio will be the eighth campus in Texas and the first campus to offer a new flexible learning model that combines three learning modalities including one-to-one learning, asynchronous digital, and small learning project-based groups. The campus is located at 227 North Loop 1604 East, Suite 100, San Antonio, TX. Fusion opened its first Texas academies in Dallas and Plano in 2014, and has since opened schools in Houston, Southlake, Sugar Land, The Woodlands, and Austin.
Fusion’s model of tailoring students learning journeys according to their strengths and learning preferences ensures students master subjects at their own pace. Fusion works with students in three key areas to help them develop the self-determination they need to be successful adults in society, these areas include self-confidence, self-advocacy, and goal setting. This approach better prepares students academically, socially, and emotionally for their future. Fusion Education Group student and parent surveys show dramatic increases in academic engagement, positive relationships, and emotional support:
- 97% of parents report their child has positive relationships with their teachers.
- 87% of students feel that the adults on campus really care about them.
- 83% of students report feeling comfortable being themselves.
- 83% of parents agree their child seems more confident since joining school.
Fusion Academy student schedules are customized, so students take classes at a time of day that works best for them. Athletes, actors, and students with extracurricular passions can schedule school around their life instead of the other way around. Other students who attend Fusion include gifted or accelerated students, students with mild learning differences, or anyone looking for a more personalized learning environment.
Each Fusion campus features Homework Café spaces where students complete homework before leaving for the day. The cafés are also the student social hub; where student meetings occur, clubs meet, and more. Fusion campuses also feature a state-of-the-art recording studio, a mixed-media art studio, and a science lab with college-level tools. Fusion academies are intended to remain small, serve as a haven from large traditional schools, and rarely exceed 100 students. Students can attend Fusion full-time for middle and high school, or part-time for tutoring, classes for credit, or college counseling. Fusion students have been accepted to more than 200 unique colleges and universities, many being their first-choice school.
“Fusion serves as a beacon of hope for students who have been disengaged in traditional settings,” said Charles. “Sometimes kids need a different setting to make things click. At Fusion they find a safe, secure space, and acquire self-confidence that allows them to engage with learning again. We are privileged to partner with families on their student’s learning journey.”
