About Acton Academy
Do you believe that learning to do and learning to be are far more than textbooks and standardized tests? Do you want your child to find a calling and not just a career? Would your child thrive with a customized curriculum tailored to her strengths and interests? Do you want your child to know and believe he has a hero within? Then Acton Academy Venice Beach might be the school for you and your family.
Serving 1st through 12th grade, Acton Academy Venice Beach is built upon the principles and approach originated at Acton Academy in Austin,TX. We’ve come west to dramatically change the approach to education for those on a hero’s journey. At Acton Academy Venice Beach your child will become a life long learner, self reliant, and enter their own hero’s journey. Students at Acton Academy learn by doing through a variety of project and holistic methods such as individualized curriculum, learning style analysis, and self and peer accountability.
In short, every aspect of the experience is student driven, guided by life long learning adult guides, and viewed as a constant experience to tackle new challenges. Through this experience students learn the essentials of mathematics, reading, writing, history, geography and more, but within the real world context in which we all live and use these skills to survive and thrive.
