Give Your Child the Education They Need to Grow, Thrive, & Change the World

The traditional school model often leaves child overwhelmed, unengaged, and hyperfocused on memorization rather than learning.

At Acton Academy, our innovative learning experience allows children to learn at their own pace, prepare for the real world, and discover their unique gifts.

Don’t Let the Traditional Educational System Hold Your Child Back

It’s hard to think of school without picturing children sitting at desks all day, regurgitating facts, and rushing to finish piles of homework. But this 150-year-old educational system doesn’t prepare child for success in the 21st century. Too often, they struggle to retain knowledge, lose interest in learning, and fall behind when they get out in the real world.

We believe there is a better way to learn. At Acton Academy, the traditional model of education is reimagined, with a focus on self-directed learning, real-world experiences, and mastery of core skills. Founded on the principles of curiosity, exploration, and personal responsibility, Acton Academy guides children on a transformative journey of discovery, where they become architects of their own learning.

Children will learn leadership, goal setting, creativity, innovative thinking, and teamwork—as well as the traditional math, science, history, and language skills needed for high school success.

Your child deserves an innovative, fun, and challenging learning environment. Click the button below now to request more information about our process and find out if we are a good fit for your family.

Why Parents Choose Acton Academy Amarillo

Character Development in Addition to General Education

Unlike traditional schools that only focus on core subjects, we ensure children have all the skills they need to succeed in life long term, including leadership, communication, problem-solving, good decision-making, and more.

Flexible Studios Instead of Crowded Classrooms

Our classes are tight-knit communities of mixed-age children who support each other and collaborate daily. Teaching children how to work together gives them invaluable relationship skills that will help them in every aspect of life.

Hands-On Learning in Place of Pop Quizzes

Most children learn better when they can explore and play. We give them room to grow at their own pace with engaging activities, projects, 21st-century learning challenges, and games. Mastery is demonstrated through the earning of badges instead of grades, and through exhibitions of learning instead of tests.

“While the academic learning is most certainly happening, we have been most impressed with the emphasis this school places on character development. We have seen our 7-year-old daughter go from crying to volunteering for speaking roles in front of all the parents and fellow students. She has come home saying things like, ‘Today was a good day, Mama. I was so brave.’ We could go on and on. We love this school.”
