What exactly is the difference between Acton Academy and other schools?

FYI No Homework @ Acton Academy! 😀🙌 👏

New Technology

We use the latest technology in a self-paced learning environment that is designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork.

Project Based Learning

We believe students learn by doing. Acton students are building real-life skills every day.

Guides vs. Teachers

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. No boring sit in your desk teacher-led lecture-style learning at Acton!

Student Led

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 apprenticeships in a field they are passionate about.

Character Education

We encourage our students to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy.

School, as we know it, was designed in 1893.

Our school was born different. Acton Academy is one of the newest and most innovative (and downright coolest) school designs in the world.

Our students are challenged to develop personal character and virtue that will help them navigate their life using as their compass kindness, hard work, honesty, responsibility, and a deep sense of life purpose.

We help young people find a calling so they can change the world.
