• A New Education for a New Generation

    We hope these resources equip and inspire you to see beyond conventional education to an exciting new world that awaits your child.

  • Do you have a love for learning?

    Acton is a learner-driven microschool, which means that our learners are self-directed. By the time they graduate, our Eagles know how to find information, evaluate it according to their criteria, and make great decisions for themselves.

    Naturally, we don't expect anything less from our Parents!

    This page includes videos, testimonials, interviews of Acton Graduates, book recommendations, and the most important tool to get to know us: "The Courage to Grow" by Laura Sandefer - the story of how Acton Academy came to be.

     

    We invite you to thoroughly digest this feast of information, to see if we would be a great fit for your family. Then, if you feel called to apply to be an Acton Academy Family, please click the "Schedule a call with our Director" button, and you can begin the process.
