Do you believe that 
character still matters?


OUR PHILOSOPHY OF LEARNING

We believe that:
Clear thinking leads to good decisions,
Good decisions lead to the right habits,
The right habits lead to character, and
Character becomes destiny.

Our Learner Driven Communities are run mostly by our students, where closely connected families of lifelong learners are bound by clear covenants; and "Learning to Do" and "Learning to Be" are even more important than "Learning to Know".

LEARNING AT ACTON

LEARN TO LEARN

Socratic Discussions and self paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.

LEARN TO DO

Hands-on Quests for Science, Entrepreneurship and the Arts prepare children for Apprenticeships and real world challenges. 

LEARN TO BE

The Hero's Journey, relational covenants and real world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.

MEASURING MASTERY

EARN BADGES TO PROVE YOU'VE MASTERED NEW SKILLS

Young heroes celebrate the mastery of tools, skills and character by earning badges, assembling portfolios and taking part in public exhibitions.

  1. Parents use badges to track academic progress in Core Skills like reading, writing, math and spelling and character development in "Learn to Be" Badges.

  2. Electronic and hard copy Portfolios capture rough drafts, photos, video and other creative work.

  3. Public exhibitions at the end of most Quests allow young heroes to present work to experts, customers or the public for a real world test.
