- Acton Academy Albuquerque students, called Eagles, set daily goals and work at their own pace toward mastery in core skills like math, reading, writing, and typing using the best adaptive software programs available. Eagles work in mulit-age studios, creating class covenants and contracts to govern their community and maintain many of their own systems of accountability. Multi-disciplinary Quests allow Eagles to apply core skills and learn history, art, science, and entrepreneurship through hands-on, real world projects.
- Acton Academy Albuquerque currently serves ages 5-13 with plans to expand into ages 14-18 in 2021.
