The unconventional Fusion Academy – which espouses a one-student, one-teacher learning approach for students in grades 6 to 12 – is coming to Malvern, writes Kathy Boccella for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

It plans to open in April near the Uptown Worthington Shopping Center, and expects to attract almost 75 full-time students and dozens more for individual classes.

The unique educational institution builds on the latest educational trend that leans toward more personalized instruction, and offers classes tailored to each student’s needs and interests.

The school comes with a hefty price tag of around $45,000 per year.

The one-on-one learning approach is touted by Fusion as an effective alternative for the increasing number of students and parents who believe that conventional classrooms do not meet the needs of children.

Fusion also provides an escape from the anxiety of attending large, competitive schools.

“We have lots of students coming from schools where they felt lost, not safe, not mattering that much,” said Brendan Cartlidge, Fusion’s Director of Admissions. “They step into this school, and they feel important.”
