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.
We believe every student who walks into our school has the seeds of genius with the potential to change the world. We believe students should be in charge of their own learning and advancement, both individually and as a group, in a community that resembles the real world as closely as possible. We believe students can, and should, teach one other.Learn more about our model
