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

We believe each child who enters Acton Academy will find a calling that changes the world. Our Eagles are independent learners who find great joy in learning, in a tight knit community that upholds the highest standards of excellence.

JOY + RIGOR = MASTERY

"Embracing rigor is part of saying 'yes' to a Hero's Journey. Deep learning brings a special sense of joy, but the mastery required for a Hero's Journey goes even further, requiring commitment, discipline and hard work towards a worthy goal."

PARENT TESTIMONIALS

"Our daughter loves learning at Acton. She can’t wait to share her day the moment she jumps into the car. I’m so grateful to see a love for learning come back into her eyes."

"I would never have believed children could learn so much from each other – until I saw it with my own eyes. The lessons of self management and self governance have prepared our fifth grade son to be a lifelong learner.”

"Eagles play hard and work hard. Our daughter jumped seven grade levels in Math in two years, but there wasn’t any magic to it; just encouragement from her friends and lots of hard work.”
