Key To meet different student goals and aspirations, we offer three course levels: essential, college prep, and honors. The levels vary in subject matter and difficulty, and prepare students in different ways:

e

Essential Course

p

High School/College Prep Course

h

Honors Course

Essential courses have modified rigor yet include all course content.

Middle School courses taken at the “p” level are designed to prepare them for secondary study within the course content and discipline. High School courses taken at the “P” level are college prep courses - designed to prepare students for higher study within course content or discipline.

Honors courses are designed to challenge students beyond the college prep level and result in a weighted GPA. Enrollment in an Honors course requires a grade of B or higher in prior course discipline coursework.

One Level

One level courses are accessible to all students and are only offered at this one curriculum level.

GPA It is the policy of Fusion Academy not to rank its students on the basis of academic performance. As an educational institution, we are committed to prioritizing learning goals and providing grades that represent their individual progress. Fusion Academy uses an alpha system to evaluate its students’ academic achievement.

NCAA Approved Classes What is National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Eligibility? Students who want the option to play sports during their first year at an NCAA Division I or II college must take specific courses that appear on a high school core course list. Fusion has a robust NCAA core course list for students to choose courses from when seeking eligibility. Speak with your Director of Student Development if your student will be seeking NCAA eligibility. Early planning is best due to strict course completion timelines.
