Our Mission

The Acton Academy West Austin mission is to inspire each child who enters our doors to find a calling that will change the world.



Our Promise to You

We promise, through Socratic guiding and experiential learning, you and your child will:

Begin a Hero's Journey

Learn to be curious, become an independent learner and love life-long learning

Discover your most precious gifts, along with the dedication it takes to develop real talent

Understand the importance of a strong character

Cherish the arts, the wonders of the physical world and the mystery of life

Treasure economic, political and religious freedom.

Our Beliefs

We believe each child has a gift that can change the world in a profound way

We believe in a closely connected community of lifelong learners

We believe that the American Experiment, with all its faults, is the best hope on earth for protecting human liberty.

Our Educational Philosophy

We believe "learning to do" and "learning to be" are even more important than "learning to know"

We believe that clear thinking leads to good decisions, that good decisions lead to the right habits, that the right habits lead to character and that character becomes destiny.
