Our Program


We are now accepting applications for Fall 2019 for children who will be 5-11 years old by August 2019 and we will grow organically adding one age level each year. Our goal is to set a solid foundation by enrolling truly committed families who are passionate about the Acton method.

Our Hybrid Model

We are a hybrid educational concept and will operate three days a week (Tuesday through Thursday). Families will homeschool the rest of the week. Our method treats the world as the classroom with 3 days in school, an 11 month calendar, and 5-6 week sessions with breaks in between. Families will not be penalized for travel or days off to pursue family and personal endeavors, within reason. Participating children will be registered with the state as homeschoolers.
