We believe that strong communication skills, combined with conscious decisions and kindness, will position children to become the Heroes of their community and leaders in any endeavor they challenge themselves with.
We believe that children should be given the freedom to think for themselves and that they each have the natural ability to be problem solvers.
We encourage young people to learn to search for problems that need solutions.
A generation of Heroes that learn to solve problems will change our world. A generation of independent thinkers that confidently use their voice, think critically and hold space for multiple perspectives.
Acton Academy Heroes grow rooted in self-confidence, resilience, grit, and empathy. They courageously explore the unknown and take risks, knowing they will learn something valuable even if they don’t succeed.
The world is changing fast. The skills of tomorrow aren't the skills of today. Take with you a DIY toolbox of curiosity, grit, trial-and-error, joy, and perseverance. You've confronted new things before. You can learn anything.
What skills do you need to change the world? Every day we're standing in the shoes of doctors, designers, presidents, and builders, learning the skills and tools that heroes have mastered. We call it a Quest.
No other accomplishment matters unless you've built a life you're proud of. Have you become a good person? What relationships have you nurtured? What habits have become part of your character?
