In January, a new 6th-12th grade alternative private school called Fusion Academy plans to open in Walnut Creek.
It will be the third Bay Area campus introduced in the past six months and the eighth campus to open in the state since February, 2010, according to a news release I received today.
More information about the school — which features flex schedules, one-to-one teaching and no homework — is available at an informational meeting from 7-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19 at the Blackhawk Country Club.
Here are details from the news release:
“Fusion Academy & Learning Center Walnut Creek is modeled after Fusion Academy & Learning Center Solana Beach, which has provided one-to-one teaching and life skills programs to students for more than 20 years. Students may attend Fusion Academy full time or enroll in after-school programs as an educational supplement.
The Walnut Creek campus will be open Monday-Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., providing students and families with optimal flexibility with scheduling.
‘We’re excited to continue our growth across the Bay Area and throughout California with the opening of our campus in Walnut Creek,’ said Michelle Rose Gilman, founder and president of Fusion Academy. ‘While many traditional schools do an excellent job in educating children, there are some children whose needs require an individualized approach, an education that is tailored specifically to their interests to maximize engagement and retention. Our objective is to reach those students.’
Parents interested in learning more about Fusion Academy Walnut Creek are encouraged to attend an informational meeting at Blackhawk Country Club (599 Blackhawk Club in Danville) on Wednesday, October 19 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
