What We DON'T Believe In...

  • Students sitting in rows of desks listening to lectures

  • Regurgitating information for standardized tests

  • Report cards to gauge learning

  • Factory-like school where one-size-fits-all

  • Pre-determined pace and materials

  • Lack of leadership responsibility

Are you a Montessori School?

YES and NO.

 

We support and use many Montessori practices. However, Acton Academy takes education a step further in preparing our next generation for today's challenges.

 

We add a Socratic dimension to our approach. This puts our heroes (aka students) in real world situations where there is not a right or wrong solution. Our heroes need to know what to do with today's readily available information and how to act responsibly with it.

  • Do you want to prepare your child for the real world by learning from difficult real world challenges?

  • Do you want your child to feel like life is an endless stream of   opportunities?

  • Have you tried homeschooling but want even more for your child?

  • Do you believe each child has individual strengths and should be   allowed to master concepts at their own pace?

  • Do you believe in freedom for families; that parents, not schools, are in charge of their families and that you are responsible for making your own choices for your family?

  • Do you believe that individual liberty and a civil society are gifts   we should pass on to our children, but that we need to instill this   love and respect of country into the next generation?

Thoughts to Ponder

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

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.”
