- We believe the learning experience is much richer when the
teacher ("Guide") offers insightful questions and facilitates hands
on learning. Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to
students` questions with new questions. This exchange hones
students` critical thinking skills.
- Acton Academy is "student led." This means young people take
ownership of their education and peer relationships. Acton students
learn to think independently, take responsibility and embrace
challenge. They are being prepared to bring their own unique genius
to the world.
- We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Beginning in
middle school, our students obtain summer internships in a field
they are passionate about. Acton students have interned with
doctors, entrepreneur bakers, plumbers, attorneys and graphic
designers. What will your child choose?
- We encourage our students to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy. Armed with purpose and good character, we believe our students will launch into adulthood prepared to find their calling and change the world.
