  • Our Core Values

    Autonomy & Independence

    Starting with our youngest learners, we "follow the child," fomenting independence and autonomy so that they grow into self-reliant, responsible and empowered people.

    Individualized Learning

    We believe that school should be positive and productive and it should serve each learner. We believe in mastery over passing and in following your passions and developing the skills your child will need on his or her unique path.

    Curiosity & Exploration

    We believe children are innately curious, and need a learning environment that cultivates their curiosity. Our focus at Acton is to create an environment where creativity is the fuel for learning.


    Rather than follow a standardized curriculum, our learners chart their own course, setting goals each week and then working hard to reach them - which gives them the power of self-discipline and self-management - a key to being successful in the new economy.

    Authentic Friendships

    We believe that people skills are the most important skills and that honesty, empathy, connection, kindness and vulnerability allow authentic friendships to grow and that holding each other accountable to be our best selves is an aspect of true friendship.

    Life Skills

    We engage children in real-world skills: from preparing food and cleaning up after themselves to learning how to manage conflict, collaborate with others, communicate effectively and even to build their own businesses.

  • Testimonials

    "Within minutes of hearing about Acton Academy's learning design, mission and philosophy, I said to my husband: THIS. This is the kind of school we have been looking for for our children. We embraced the Acton journey and we have never looked back. Our kids are thriving, happy and free to be themselves. And they are part of a global network of innovators that will serve them in their future careers - wherever they decide to go, whatever they decide to do. Thank you, Acton Academy!!!"
