A Full-Time, Private, K-12 Academy
As a parent it can be frustrating to see your child’s unique talents lay dormant and undeveloped because of a focus on TESTING and HOMEWORK (that steals precious time from your family). We too, have seen our child’s eyes light up when they are invigorated by learning...and experienced helplessness when the light is snuffed out by standards and checkboxes.
We have found the solution and want to share it with you.
Students from all backgrounds can thrive at Acton!
We crave a life that means something to the world. We crave being known for our uniqueness, not what others expect or hope us to be.
— Laura Sandefer, Founder of the first Acton Academy

Breathe a sigh of relief to see your child loving school!
With its self-directed philosophy, coupled with an emphasis on Socratic learning and discussion, we feel that Acton Academy will equip our children with unique and powerful advantages in a world where automation and A.I. will require new kinds of development and skills.
Over the past two months, I have seen a great deal of growth in my child. He has become more self-motivated, his communication and social skills are improving every day. He is thinking deeper and beginning to care about things that he has had little regard for in the past. But my favorite thing is his newfound sense of belonging and significance at Acton.
Acton has lit a fire under my son; his personality and interests are blooming left and right since her started here!
Watching them work as a team and learning to accept and adapt to eachother different personalities!
My child seems to have more confidence.
'School' is no longer a bad word! They love going every single day!
My son's education is now being driven by him instead of being led by a teacher.
I love the personal accountability at Acton Academy as well as a good balance between focused core subject time and interactive peer time. I love how children learn to solve problems both independently and in a group. I also love the high level of freedom they have as well as the balanced accountability/consequences. I am still amazed that I was able to find a model that could would allow all four of our very unique children to thrive and get out of it what they need for their own personal growth.
