Fusion Academy Greenwich named among ‘Most Innovative K-12 Schools in America’

Fusion Academy, with a campus in Greenwich, was recently named among the “41 Most Innovative K–12 Schools in America” — the only school in the Greenwich area to be recognized. Fusion is an accredited private school providing one-to-one classrooms for kids from grades 6-12, offering a non-traditional school model that allows complete customization for each student.

“We are honored to be recognized for the work that we are doing to foster student growth and development using our completely customized and individualized, one-to-one educational approach.” said Jennifer Walsh-Rurak, Ed.D. Head of School at Fusion Academy Greenwich. “This award confirms what we know to be true; Fusion is truly innovative and through our personalized approach we are changing the lives and trajectories of students who would otherwise be overlooked or underserved by the traditional K-12 system.”

Noodle, an education-based website that released the list, noted that the schools they selected inspire students to love learning, and empower teachers and administrators to create unparalleled educational opportunities.

In describing why Fusion made the cut, the article noted, “Fusion offers a personalized approach to college preparatory coursework for learners who want scheduling flexibility, while also focusing on the social-emotional aspects of student development. Students may attend classes year-round, and full- or part-time, according to schedules that are similar to those typical of college life — that is, from early morning through the evening, Monday through Thursday, with optional programs available on Fridays. Courses take place in classrooms on Fusion campuses, and are structured as one-on-one meetings between an instructor and a student.”

Fusion Academy Greenwich campus, located at 66 Gatehouse Road in Stamford, is the first Fusion Academy in Connecticut and ninth in the Tri-State area, joining schools in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Westchester, Princeton and Englewood, among others. The unique one-to-one private school is experiencing rapid growth with more than 30 campuses having opened or to be opened soon in California, Texas, Connecticut, Illinois (Chicago), New Jersey and New York.

Classes are offered year round so students can begin studying at any time during the calendar year, including enrolling for a full schedule of courses over the summer. Students seeking to make up a course, get ahead, or simply have some fun may take standard academic courses for credit or sample the Fusion program by taking the Fusion Intensive. The Fusion Intensive allows students a semester for credit plus a sampling of art/music, Leadership Skills, and Study Skills for a special introductory price.
