SPARK STUDIO (Lower Elementary)

Ages 4-8

The purpose of our Spark Studio is:

🌵to foster academic, physical, and emotional independence through developmentally appropriate works inspired by Maria Montessori;

🌵to spark curiosity through hands-on experiences and play-based challenges, and;

🌵to equip learners for the next steps of their journey by applying the Hero’s Journey philosophy.

Our youngest learners have the option to work on a modified schedule – Monday – Thursday 9 am – 2: 30 pm. They will complete mini versions of our elementary studio components – core skills and learning quests.

Our middle ages work within both studio environments. They have already mastered some early learning concepts and are working toward self-regulation and putting the finishing touches on their early reading, writing, and math skills. Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. – 3:15 p.m.

DISCOVERY Studio (Upper Elementary)

Ages 8-11

The purpose of our Discovery Studio is:

🌵to develop self-awareness and independence through reflective processes and freedom within boundaries;

🌵to discover a joy for learning through a balanced learning design, and;

🌵to ignite curiosity through a wide range of challenges and experiences.

Our upper elementary-aged learners will work within the full Acton Academy model. We will meet Monday thru Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 3:15 p.m.
