Revolutionary One-to-One School to Launch in Tysons
Fusion Academy Opening Third D.C.-Area Campus to
Bring Personalized Learning to Northern Virginia Residents
Tysons, VA – Fusion Academy will open its 39th campus in Tysons, VA, on January 9, 2017. Fusion is a revolutionary learning community that builds personal relationships and customized education solutions for every student. Fusion’s individualized teaching methodology unlocks students’ academic potential while also creating opportunities for emotional and social growth. Following the successful opening of two campuses in the D.C.-metro area earlier this year, Fusion is expanding with a third local campus to meet the increased demand for high-quality and unique educational options.
“One-to-one, relationship-based teaching echoes the way we have educated our next generation of students throughout most of human history,” said Jeremiah Hakundy, Head of School at Fusion Tysons. “It seems revolutionary by today’s standards, but it’s also the most natural way to educate. We can precisely meet students of all capabilities where they are currently, as well as provide truly individualized instruction with meaningful connections, support, and genuine understanding. We are able to catch students up on content, accelerate to the next level, and foster a nurturing and successful environment for students for whom the traditional classroom is holding them back for whatever reason–including social and learning differences, highly gifted and twice exceptional students, and students and families who benefit from flexible scheduling.”
Led by Hakundy, a Harvard graduate and experienced teacher and education administrator, Fusion offers flexible scheduling to meet the growing demands students face outside of school. At Fusion, homework is completed in the Homework Café® on campus, and no work goes home at the end of the school day. This enables students to spend quality time with family and friends while simultaneously making sure they receive the instructional support they require to complete assignments.
“Having worked with adolescents for almost a decade in both educational and therapeutic settings, I have witnessed firsthand how focusing on individuals’ strengths and contributions leads to students’ emotional and academic success,” said Rachel Bailey, parenting specialist and consultant. “Fusion’s emphasis on respect-based teacher-student relationships, as well recognizing each student’s unique qualities is refreshing, and I am confident that it will be effective in helping many students meet their potential. I am excited to see a variety of learners in our area benefit from their presence in our community.”
The Fusion Tysons campus will be located at 1934 Old Gallows Road in Vienna near the intersection of routes 7 and 495 right in the heart of Tysons. Fusion Academy was founded in San Diego, CA, more than 20 years ago out of frustration with the status quo in traditional K-12 schools. Fusion’s one-student-to-one-teacher model proved to unlock academic potential while opening opportunities for emotional and social growth.
