We believe that each young person who enters our doors is a hero destined to change the world.
Acton Academy Del Mar, Inc is part of the Acton Academy network – a network of true learner-driven micro schools started in Austin in 2009– and considered by many to be a leading model of K-12 innovation in the United States.
We believe it is the most nurturing, deep-learning, student-centered learning environment in the world, and we're thrilled to share it with intentional families in our community.
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?
