What do I do now?

Where every child begins a hero's journey

Do you believe character matters more than tests and free play is more important than homework? Do you yearn for your child to have opportunities to follow their natural curiosities and find a calling, not just a career?

AAC helps K-12th grade students discover and grow their unique strengths.

Empower your child to fulfill their dreams

At Acton Academy Concord, we help our K-12 students create their own path to success by developing the real-world skills and character traits that matter most.

We offer a truly different approach to school.

Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades.

At Acton Academy Concord, our students learn at their own pace and level in all academic areas. Our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences.

Our learning environment is supported by learning specialists to assist children with learning differences.
