The Acton Academy is dedicated to inspiring each child to see life as a Hero's Journey, where someone with curiosity and character can find a "calling," using his or her most precious gifts, in a way that brings great joy, to solve a deep burning need in the world. We currently offer 1st through 9th grades. Our high school will be 10th-12th grades and will open for the 2015-2016 school year.

Joy + Rigor

"Genius and talent are wasted without a focused discipline toward mastery. The choice to work hard without excuse is a decision made by each learner at Acton Academy. Embracing rigor is part of saying,'yes' to a Hero's Journey. The great discovery is that herein lies the joyful sweet spot of deep flow in learning." - Laura Sandefer
