Learning To Do
Changing the world requires skills and hard work and lots of failing: At Acton Academy, it is our duty to help our heroes find their passion and pursue their talents with real life experiences. These skills mastered are translated into action with a product being sold, a project being presented or a solution being pitched in every six weeks. We call it a Quest.
Learning To Be
We ask our heroes: Are you performing at the highest standard of excellence? Are you becoming a better person? Is the hard work being translated in a virtuous character?
Learning To Learn
The world is changing at an accelerated pace. The workforce isn’t static anymore, with many careers that will be created in the next 10 years don’t even exist yet. We want our future generations to be flexible and adaptable, knowing that anything is learnable.
Learning To Know
In a world where accumulating knowledge becomes less valuable (where anything is searchable). Instead of memorization and facts with multiple choice, at Acton critical thinking promotes a clear “why?” with what we call this Socratic discussion launches. Learning is a journey: We want our heroes to think outside the box, to be curators of content and problem-solvers that lead an inspiring and creative life.
