FYI No Homework @ Acton Academy!
The purpose of an Acton education is to help your child discover, grow, and utilize their natural gifts and abilities.
We foster fellowship
among children, parents, and families to support one another on our
individual hero's journeys.
We believe the learning experience is much richer with hands-on learning. No boring sit in your desk teacher-led lecture-style learning at Acton!
We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Beginning in middle school, our students obtain summer internships in a field they are passionate about.
Nature is an essential part of childhood. Not only is it good for their soul, but it's important for kids to take risks, build resilience, and gain confidence.
We believe students learn by doing. Acton students are building real-life skills in the classroom every day through hands-on projects.
Acton Academy is “student led.” This means young people take ownership of their education and peer relationships.
We encourage our students to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy.

Our students are challenged to develop personal character and virtue that will help them navigate their life using:
- hard work
- a deep sense of life purpose
We help young people find a calling so they can change the world.
We believe each of our students will find a passion – something they love and have a gift to do – finding and pursuing this gift we call the Hero’s Journey. Our mission is to equip our students with the skills and tools they will need to find and pursue their life’s purpose.
