WHY START AN ACTON ACADEMY?

  • Every individual is a genius and you can tap their potential to change the world.
  • Because less than 8% of applicants make it through our selection process and 98% that open an Acton Academy are still operating today.
  • You are a person who believes you are going to change the world through starting an Acton Academy and are willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

Are you willing to take control, work hard, challenge yourself, and turn learning upside down?
