Our South Miami Campus
Acton Academy’s studios are a blend of the old and the new – a return to the community schoolhouses that built America – with the best of modern technology and 21st-century organizational design.
“SPARK” — AGES 6-9
Success in Spark = Grow a unique, curious and independent spirit
Spark is an authentic Montessori environment of whole child development: cognitive, physical, emotional and social.
Children in Spark learn and discover through play and exploring natural interests. The Primary Studio also builds foundations of reading, goal setting and independent learning skills that prepare young people to soar in the Discovery Studio.
“DISCOVERY” — AGES 10-12
Success in Discovery = Develop a deep love of learning and kindness in relationships with others
The Elementary Studio – Discovery – builds a foundation of learning and discovery through personalized Core Skills, exploratory Quest projects and play. Core Skills – reading, writing, math and computer science – are self-paced and mastery-based using adaptive technology. Students explore the arts, sciences, history and natural world through hands-on projects each afternoon. Simulations require teamwork, critical thinking and creativity. Meanwhile, plenty of free play binds the community together and builds problem solving and collaboration. Basic reading and math skills are a requirement for joining this studio.
