Fusion Academy Oak Brook, a private middle and high school with a one-to-one teaching model, held its Grand Opening on October 13th. The campus, which opened in March, invited the community to come together to celebrate their journey. Attendees had the opportunity to take a tour and hear stories from Fusion students and families. Village of Oak Brook officials led a ribbon cutting ceremony during the event. The event took place at Fusion Academy at 3041 Butterfield Road, Suite 200 in Oak Brook.
Fusion Academy classes are all one-to-one: one teacher and one student per classroom. This allows for the customization of curriculum and teaching for each student’s unique strengths, interests, and learning style. Fusion serves middle and high school students who do not fit into the traditional school model. Each student’s story is unique, but many have the following backgrounds: ADHD, accelerated/gifted learners, dyslexia, dysgraphia and learning differences, social challenges and school anxiety, or students with challenging schedules.
“Our journeys are all different pieces of colorful tiles held together by the strength of our relationships to create a vibrant mosaic,” said Melisa Simpson-Lord, Head of School.
Village of Oak Brook President Gopal Lalmalani added, “The Village of Oak Brook welcomes Fusion Academy to our community. Congratulations and we wish Fusion much success!”
