East Valley Acton Academy helps PreK-8th grade students discover and grow their unique strengths, because the world needs them.

Young people need to learn the right things to help them fulfill their dreams. At

East Valley Acton Academy, our mission is to empower PreK-12 students to live meaningful

lives by providing an environment where they discover their unique strengths, learn

real-world skills, and grow in good character. Children get one shot at their education,

so they need to learn what matters most.

Learn By Doing

We believe students learn by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tidepool habitat, playing a musical instrument, painting a mosaic, or programming a robot, Acton students are building real-life skills in the classroom every day.

Students Take Ownership

Acton Academy is “student led.” This means young people take ownership of their education. Acton students learn to think independently, take responsibility and embrace challenge. They are being prepared to bring their own unique genius to the world.

Change The World

We encourage our students to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy. Armed with purpose and good character, we believe our students will launch into adulthood prepared to find their calling and change the world.



“This morning my child got up, got dressed, and said I'm ready for school! But it's Saturday little one. The comment says it all. Hard lessons and fun lessons & they want to go back."

"Our learner has loved it from day one and we have enjoyed watching her blossom and grow in this learner led learning environment. These kids have really come together as a community (in many cases better than adults in the workplace) and the varying age groups in something our learner really enjoys as it allows her to be a helper to the younger learners and be the "big sister" role she doesn't get to have at home.

This school is such a breath of fresh air for our family!"

“My child's time at East Valley Acton Academy has been such an intriguing experience so far! It is so satisfying to pick him up and vividly observe his excitement for all he got to experience in his day. He is animated, engaged, and expressive about what he did with is day, and it makes us so happy to know he genuinely enjoys Acton. He also enjoys the freedom of exploring the outdoors."
