What Is Acton Academy?

And How Can It Unleash Your Child's Full Potential?

Our System is Built to Turn Your Child into a Life-Long Learner and Self Starter.

We accomplish that by using the latest technology in a self-paced learning environment designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. As a result, we empower students to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and learners.

We believe students learn by doing. So, whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tidepool habitat, playing a musical instrument, painting a mosaic, or programming a robot, Acton students are building real-life skills in the classroom every day.

Instead of Memorizing Facts - We Focus on Self Discovery & Skill Development.

We believe the learning experience is much richer when the teacher (“Guide”) offers insightful questions and facilitates hands-on learning. Acton Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to students’ questions with new questions. This exchange hones their critical thinking skills and helps us avoid the boring, “sit at your desk” lectures that stifle inspiration.

Acton Academy is “student-led.” Young people take ownership of their education and peer relationships. Acton students learn to think independently, take responsibility, and embrace challenges. We equip them with the skills they need to bring their unique genius to the world.

We Want Kids To Discover & Develop Skills As Early as Possible.

We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Beginning in middle school, our students obtain summer internships in industries and work fields related to their passions. For example, Acton students have interned with doctors, entrepreneur bakers, plumbers, attorneys, and graphic designers. What will your child choose?

We encourage our students to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness, and empathy. Then, armed with purpose and good character, we believe our students will launch into adulthood prepared to find their calling and change the world.
