Acton Academy's multi-age learning environment supercharges the learning process. You won't spend your days marching along to a rigid curriculum, instead you'll take on engaging Quest-based projects, set goals, form close friendships, problem solve, collaborate, mentor, make difficult decisions, think creatively, persuade audiences, lead mixed-age teams, and create innovative opportunities for the world. The end goal isn’t to simply get a good score on a test, it is to help you discover your passions, grow your unique strengths, and prepare you to impact the world in a meaningful way.

What if your child is far more capable than we could imagine?

Well, we believe
they are.

Cultivating curiosity, resilience & Grit


We believe that asking questions is far more important than simply providing answers.


We believe in a growth mindset and that true talent comes from effort, hard work and perseverance.


We believe in failing quickly, cheaply and often. We celebrate those who try, fail, then try again.

“And yes, they learn reading, writing, and arithmetic using state-of-the-art, game-based teaching tools that have helped them progress at three times the rate of their public school peers.”
“There are no participation trophies allowed at Acton Academy. Instead, your young learner carries around badges of courage, perseverance and honor etched into their hearts to last a lifetime.”
— An Acton Academy Guide

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.”
“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.”
