A transformative education


Acton Academy East Bay joins a growing network of Acton Academy Schools worldwide. We join teams in Wisconsin, Chicago, Toronto, Houston and London who won the right to open a new wave of Acton Academies to build on the success of the original Acton Academy in Austin, Texas. Watch a video about how Acton is transforming education.

At Acton, we believe every child who walks into our school is a genius with the potential to change the world. We believe students should be in control of their learning and advancement, in a community that closely resembles the real world. We believe students can, and should, teach one another and work collaboratively to grow.
