Hi! My name is Kristina Baucom, mom and founder of Acton Academy Waco. As parents, we send our children to school to prepare them for the real world which is changing very fast. But our schools haven’t changed much for hundreds of years. It’s no surprise that parents are frustrated with the old, traditional educational model that teaches students to check boxes and spit out facts.
At most schools, children spend their day sitting in a classroom following instructions and having every moment of their day tightly regulated. In today’s current career climate, people are valued for their ability to be creative, work autonomously, collaborate with teams, and solve difficult problems. These types of skills can’t be learned in a traditional classroom where test scores and conformity take center stage.
At Acton Academy, we believe learning should be an adventure – unique to each student – preparing them to bring their own special genius to the world. We use the latest technology and hands-on projects in a self-paced learning environment that fosters responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. From apprenticeships to business startups, our students are learning to set and achieve goals and create their own destiny. Acton students are empowered to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and learners.
My husband and I are so grateful we found Acton Academy a nonprofit that helps parents open schools. Like you, we aren’t trying to raise an “average” child. Don’t settle for an average education. Begin your family’s adventure by auditioning for a spot at Acton Academy.
