One Teacher, One Student, No Homework at Fusion Academy

Alternative private school opens up in Woodbury.

One Teacher, One Student, No Homework at Fusion Academy
An alternative private school boasting one-to-one teacher-student ratios recently opened its first Long Island campus in Woodbury.

Fusion Academy is an accredited institution offering a highly individualized education for grades 6-12. Started in California in 2002, the school has campuses in New York City, New Jersey, and California.

Fusion markets itself as "the ultimate in personalized education" with a curriculum tailored to each student's emotional and academic needs, abilities, learning style, pace and schedule. Most notably, each student is taught by one teacher in a private classroom. 

To the joy of some parents, Fusion Academy students never take their school work home with them. Instead, they complete it under teacher supervision in the "Homework Cafe."

Tuition starts at $3,900 per semester, per course for "standard middle school" and $3,350 per semester, per course for "standard high school." Students can opt for an extended high school program at $3,900 per semester, per course, or an honors high school program at $3,840 per semester, per course.

The school campus is located at 260 Crossways Park Drive in Syosset. Learn more about Fusion here.
