Traditional System

Acton Academy

Children follow a set curriculum, whether exciting or not.

Authoritative figures set rules children must abide by.

Grades gauge learning then students move on, whether concepts are full understood or not.

Children may miss opportunities to learn essential skills needed for today's challenges.

Families may experience evenings of frustration and lost quality time due to homework.

Children must move at the same pace as peers.

Your child will find joy and become a lifelong learner by discovering his/her passions, which then fuels learning.

Together, children create provisional contracts that govern their learning experience.

Through Socratic (thought provoking) discussions, entrepreneurial ventures, leadership roles, collaborative skills and hands-on challenges, children gain tools needed for today.

NO HOMEWORK - regain lost time and start enjoying quality time with your family.

Your child will move at his/her own pace. On average, Acton students progress 3 grade levels above peers in a traditional setting.

Children are told where to be, what to study, and when to stop/start.

Your child will learn to self regulate, manage time and take responsibility for their own learning.

Concepts are mastered before your child moves forward, creating confidence and a solid foundation to continue to build upon.

 Testimonials

Wave

SANDY YAKLIN

“The fact that Acton demands excellence and mastery is the ONLY reason our daughter could even dream of applying to a top university. At Acton, she was not handicapped by being a ‘late bloomer.’ She has had both the room to find herself and the accountability to rise up.” 

Wave

CHARLIE AND PAM MADERE

“The Acton community and life experience provide our son the best possible environment in which to develop. You empower kids to an unparalleled degree. We truly believe this, relative to all other educational options. Every Acton parent goes to sleep each night thankful for the opportunity to be in this moment.”

Wave

SUSANNAH HOLLINGER

“Our daughter was showing signs of depression before attending Acton Academy. She is now happy and thriving, in large part because of the Acton way of learning. Now, she loves school so much that she never wants to miss a day.”
