Will my learner be ready for college?

Our promise at Acton Academy is to have our learners equipped for any selective university. Once your Eagle gets over the test-taking barrier at the university of their choice, their portfolio, and critical thinking skills will be a big boost during the application and interviewing process. Most importantly, our Eagles will be well prepared to shine in the real world, whether they choose to go to college full-time, part-time, or not at all.

Is Acton Academy accredited?

Yes, our school is accredited through the International Association of Learner Driven Schools.

Is Acton Academy right for my child?

Acton is the right place for your child if they believe the below:

  1. Wish traditional school was more challenging and engaging
  2. Enjoy doing projects around their interests, including building, creating, innovating, or making art
  3. See things differently
  4. Care about their future, want to find a calling, and want to change the world
  5. Are kind, hardworking, and committed to doing their best

What is your academic calendar?

Our school is broken out into sessions with a week break in-between each session, plus traditional school breaks (Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring). School will begin in late July and ends in late May with an optional 4-week summer session during the month of June. Our flexible calendar allows families to travel together throughout the school year. Please see our current calendar for more details. 

How does self-paced learning happen at Acton Academy?

We provide a 21st-century learning environment using the latest in educational technology for self-paced mastery of reading, writing, and math skills. Learners are placed according to ability (not age). This allows our learners to go at a self-paced speed. Learners will move on to the next level only after the content has been mastered, which ensures there are no learning gaps.

Do you offer team sports?

Although we do not offer formal team sports, many of our students participate in city league sports. Our school embraces a deep commitment to physical fitness and overall health awareness.

How long is Acton Academy in session each year?

We operate on an 11- month calendar, but our flexible program allows families to travel together during the year.

Do you offer art and music?

From charcoal drawings, soft pastel, clay, and murals, our students experience varied and unique art and music workshops.

Is Acton Academy a religious school?

While we expose our learners to the importance of mindful spirituality and stress the historical importance of Christianity to the development of Western Civilization, we do not promote any one religion.

Will children be grouped into grades?

We believe that Eagles learn best when working with children younger and older than themselves rather than split up into groups based solely on age. In addition to an individualized curriculum, all ages of students work together in groups. 

Without homework and frequent test-taking, how do I know my child is learning?

Our Spark Studio is best imagined as a garden where learners (ages 4-7) embrace Montessori work and Spark Play to learn real-life skills and develop the independence, focus, and kindness needed to enter an Acton Elementary Studio — each prepared to discover a calling that will change the world.

Will you have an Elementary, Middle and High school?

Yes- as our learners grow, our school will grow with them! We plan to offer a full PK through 12 education.
