Over 20 years ago Fusion Academy started as a single, unique private school in the San Diego area. Fusion Education Group has replicated that school and now supports 60+ campuses.
Each Fusion Academy is an accredited, one-to-one private school for grades 6 through 12. But we’re so much more than that. We’re a community of learning dedicated to creating a supportive environment where every student can flourish – emotionally, socially, and intellectually. Our teaching approach is unique and effective: one student and one teacher for the whole class period. This lets us present course material in a focused environment, at a pace, and in a style that suits each student’s individual interests, strengths, and challenges.
Fusion is a unique place to work and teach. We believe that teaching and learning should be fun! So start a parade down the hall or wrap your classroom in tin foil! (If you can’t embrace that kind of wackiness, Fusion may not be for you…) “Fusionites” are creative and embrace change. We build relationships every moment, every day with students, their parents, and other Fusionites. Diversity is embraced and openness matters.
We also believe that teaching is a calling, and not a job. Some of our teachers have teaching licenses but some do not and are content experts. We come from diverse backgrounds including special education, traditional teaching, tutoring, and life experience. We all have at least a bachelor’s degree, and many have master’s degrees or professional degrees.

The scheduling for the classes that you teach is inconsistent. Some weeks you may be teaching 5 classes a day depending on what the parents sign up for, others you may only teach 5 a week.
Nothing to write home about. Underwhelming and not quite what I thought it would have been. People are friendly and warm in general but just not great if you're looking for full time. Low hourd
The idea behind Fusion Academy sounds good, but in reality it does not work. It feels very much like a "pay for an A" type of setting. It attracts many entitled families who fully expect to be able to buy their kids a degree. The pay seemed ok at first (30 per / hr) but once you realize that parents are paying 130 per class, you realize you're getting the short end of the stick. No time spent writing emails and doing admi
Great support team and friendly environment which is excellent for learning and teaching. The meetings provide the teachers with the necessary training and information that we need for our courses and I see all of this being reflected in our students as they are really motivated and are working very well in class.
You do not receive enough paid hours for your work. Get ready to plan, grade, and perform administrative duties within a 10-minute time limit because that is all you are paid per period. In reality, you will be doing all of this for free. The school has expectations for teachers without any regard for what they should provide as employers. Namely, you are supposed to provide money in exchange for work. Don't even dream of health insurance since you might not even earn enough for rent. This is a dead-end, underpaid, gig economy job.
