WHAT PARENTS
ARE SAYING

"We pick them up and they don’t want to leave, they want to learn more, they want to show what they have done, they want to keep exploring and it’s just this joy for life & for learning."

Exploration/Discovery Parent

"What we love the most about AASV is how it is enabling our daughter to become self-sufficient and resilient. As she grows, we feel this is the best place for her to become independent, self-motivated, and ready to pursue whatever passions she discovers."

Spark Parent

"I see my child just come home so excited and want to keep learning and absorbing everything around them! The guides are top-notch!"

Spark Studio

"If you think the traditional school model is 100 years outdated and needs an overhaul, look no more. At Acton, on a daily basis, she is seen, heard, understood, listened to, mirrored and respected."

Student Learning Environment

STUDENT-LED LEARNING

Our student-led environment is a departure from a traditional classroom experience focused on lectures, rote memorization, and conformity.  At Acton SV, we offer students agency over their education and learning environment and we focus on their personal goals and interests. In contrast to traditional classrooms, in our self-paced, mastery-based approach, students spend the necessary time on a skill until they achieve proficiency.

PROBLEM SOLVING

 Entrepreneurship is a mental mindset. It’s an attitude and approach that empowers dreamers to become doers. At Acton SV, we seek active change rather than waiting to adapt to change. Our learners are encouraged to actively participate and pursue their interests and talents through exploration, intellectual curiosity, creativity and individual thought. We encourage risk-taking and embrace the possibility of failure as part of the journey.

SUPPORTS:

• SELF-DISCIPLINE
