Tuition Assistance Builds an Assessible and Inclusive Community
OUR PHILOSOPHY OF TUITION ASSISTANCE
The tuition to attend Acton Academy is $13,900.
Acton Academy's tuition assistance program is a tool created with the core belief that a world class educational experience for children should be accessible to a wide range of members of our community.
We believe that cost should not be a primary deterrent for families exploring our school. We offer tuition assistance and flexible monthly payment plans and work with parents to find an affordable way to give their children the gift of an extraordinary education.
What exactly is the difference between Acton Academy and other schools?
FYI No Homework @ Acton Academy!
A Meaningful Education
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.
Phenomenal Teachers "Guides"
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.
One Day Per Week in Nature Immersion
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.
Project Based Learning
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.

What Other Parents Are Saying About Acton Academy
The Current, Traditional School Model Was Designed in 1893
ACTON ACADEMY WAS BORN DIFFERENT
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.
Our Promises To Your Child
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.
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".

EARN BADGES TO PROVE YOU'VE MASTERED NEW SKILLS

- Parents use badges to track academic progress in Core Skills like reading, writing, math and spelling and character development in "Learn to Be" Badges.
- Electronic and hard copy Portfolios capture rough drafts, photos, video and other creative work.
- 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.
