Elementary School

Ages 7-11

At our Elementary Studio we lay the foundation for the joy of learning as we encourage our young heroes to find their life’s calling and tap into their unique genius. Our well-balanced educational experience ignites curiosity, creativity, and the ability to ask good questions.

Acton Academy Elementary School Eagles have the choice of continuing in the Middle School Studio at the main Acton Academy Austin campus.

The education he is receiving is so far beyond any traditional school experience he has had thus far.  Acton is providing our child with "real world" skills that will be necessary for him to not only thrive and excel in his education, but also to identify what would be a meaningful, purposeful path for his future.

Every year at Acton, we build small businesses from the ground-up.

Learning Environment

  • Learner-driven environment where students self-govern through contracts, mentorship, and character development
  • Mixed age classrooms called "studios" that inspire strong work-ethic and effective collaboration, outdoor education and outdoor space for learning and free play
  • No homework or frequent testing, STEM learning through a hands-on project-based curriculum
  • Socratic discussions fostering important communication skills and critical thinking
  • Mastery of core subjects using the latest in online learning software and goal-setting.

Measuring Mastery

Young heroes celebrate the mastery of tools, skills and character by earning badges, assembling portfolios and taking part in public exhibitions.

  • Parents use badges to track academic progress in Core Skills like reading, writing, math and spelling and character development in “Learn to Be” Badges.
  • Electronic and hard copy Portfolios capture rough drafts, photos, video and other creative work.
  • Public exhibitions at the end of most Quests allow young heroes to present work to experts, customers or the public for a real world test.
