Do you believe your child has the potential to change the world?

Do you believe learning to do and learning to be are more important than textbooks alone?

Do you believe in a closely connected family of lifelong learners?

A 21st Century Academy made for today's generation.

We believe that strong communication skills,  combined with conscious decisions and kindness, will position children to become the Heroes of their community and leaders in any endeavor they challenge themselves with.

We believe that children should be given the freedom to think for themselves and that they each have the natural ability to be problem solvers.

We encourage young people to learn to search for problems that need solutions.

A generation of Heroes that learn to solve problems will change our world. A generation of independent thinkers that confidently use their voice, think critically and hold space for multiple perspectives.

Acton Academy Heroes grow rooted in self-confidence, resilience, grit, and empathy. They courageously explore the unknown and take risks, knowing they will learn something valuable even if they don’t succeed.

What our parents write about us

I have been very impressed with my son’s experience at Acton Academy. I have seen his school related anxiety greatly reduced due to the flexibility of their unique approach to learning. Each student is valued as an individual, with perspectives that are heard and respected. Decision making is a collaborative process, allowing the students to feel a sense of responsibility and ownership over their education.

My son has been given the encouragement and resources to pursue areas of particular interest to him. He has been made to feel that he has important gifts to contribute to the world. I think that is the greatest possible source of motivation for learning, and I appreciate that Acton has provided an environment in which confidence can grow.

My nephew attends this school and it’s been amazing to see him blossom. He was a kid who hated school, but Acton has a totally unique approach to learning. The kids have a VOICE, they can pursue their own interests while learning the curriculum, and they are very active in creating a positive, collaborative environment.

If your child is someone who thinks outside the box and has struggled with the rigidity of rote learning, check out Acton. They will utilize your child’s unique gifts in incredible ways!
