How did we get here?
No "hold on to your seats" story just two parents, like you, excited and enthusiastic to watch their children, Ruby and Roy, find their calling and change the world. Just like so many parents, we thoroughly researched potential schooling models and questioned countless friends about their schooling experiences. The rethinking education model of Acton Academy offers what we want for our children and for all children - to be prepared for a meaningful life, with 21st century skills that focus on learning to "Do" and to learning to "Be" while embracing the path of a lifelong learner.
Acton Academy is a proven network of learner-driven micro-schools, founded by educators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and parents.
As part of our own Hero's Journey, we are proud to be part of the growing movement of families and educators advancing alternative schooling in our current educational landscape. We invite you to explore Acton Academy Dripping Springs and reach out as you prepare your family to change the world.
