The Montessori Vision

We embrace Dr. Maria Montessori’s vision that, “a child’s work is to create the person he will become.” Thus, we begin with the end goal in mind – young adults who eagerly tackle academic and personal challenges, who are compassionate collaborators, who engage in thoughtful research and critical thinking to actively solve problems, and who thrive as life-long learners.

The Acton Vision   


We believe each child who enters Acton Academy will find a calling that changes the world. Our Learners are independent who find great joy in learning, in a tight knit community that upholds the highest standards of excellence.

  • We believe each child has a gift that can change the world in a profound way.
  • We believe in a closely connected family of lifelong learners.
  • We believe in learning by knowing, learning by doing and learning by being.
  • We believe in economic, religious, and political freedom.
