All our families are on their own unique journey.
The best way to describe Acton Academy Venice Beach is a hidden educational gem. It is a precious place where learning is valued, cherished, and celebrated. Since starting at Acton our son advanced well beyond his age group level because the Acton approach works. The Acton approach is based on three “secret ingredients:”
a contagious passion for learning,
empowerment of learners absolutely, and
an ever-supportive community.
Collectively, these three ingredients make Acton’s educational approach magical. Kids value their peers and learning. They challenge themselves academically while developing empathy and social skills. Anyone who cares about learning and community will be astounded by the Acton magic.Roy and Noa’s Testimony
Carly has been attending Acton in Venice Beach for four years now. Good riddance to the cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all, tired and ineffective educational factory. And hello to a welcoming, nurturing, and multi-faceted learning environment. My daughter excels—in her studies, in her love for creative writing, and in just plain feeling good about herself. She has learned self-sufficiency, gained the tools and confidence to overcome challenges, and has renewed pride in being exactly who she is.
I will never forget that first week at Acton…my ten-year-old literally jumping up and down when I came to pick her up. Her excitement and joy from learning was dazzling. It had always been there, but it had been stifled. That same enthusiasm is what I see today. In all her endeavors.
This is the gift that Acton Academy gives. It puts the joy back in learning and affords a child the freedom to find the best path toward success and happiness. What more could a parent ask for?Alison’s Story
The Acton educational model has inspired us every minute our learner has been there. Thank you for providing an environment where our kids can learn, teach, consider, and direct at their pace in a way that is particular to them.Whitney’s Story
