Education in America is changing, and Miami will soon be home to a revolutionary private school. Fusion Academy is an accredited, non-traditional middle and high school where classes are one-to-one: one student and one teacher per classroom. The first Florida location will open in Miami-Dade County in January 2018 and will be the 44th Fusion campus nationwide. Fusion’s one-to-one model allows teachers to personalize class curriculum and pace around each student’s strengths, interests, and learning style.
By customizing the learning experience to meet student needs, Fusion students see a dramatic positive impact on their academic success. According to recent data gathered from a Fusion survey, 64 percent of Fusion students agree they have increased their learning compared to their previous school. In addition, the data shows 83 percent of students demonstrate a powerful increase in academic confidence after just three months at Fusion.
Fusion offers over 250 classes including many unique electives. The campus will feature a state-of-the-art recording studio and a mixed media art studio. Social and emotional wellness are a strong focus of Fusion, and there are classes and supplemental programs available. Many students enroll full time, but there are options to take classes for credit or seek tutoring/test preparation help.
The one-to-one school will be led by Head of School, Maria J. Cardenas, who earned a Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership from Florida International University. Prior to joining Fusion Academy, the Miami native served as the Assistant Principal at Archbishop Carroll High School and Department Chair at Miami Arts Charter School. Ms. Cardenas is excited to bring her experience and talents to a new learning environment in Miami that fosters impressive growth in students.
