Start Acton

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

Then perhaps the Acton Academy is for you and your family.

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.”
