The journey starts here.

Acton Academy West Austin, founded in 2015, is a student-led, self-paced, private accredited school. The school uses online adaptive software for math and language, real-world project-based learning, Socratic discussion groups, and examination of the Hero’s Journey and how it applies personally to each student. The Acton model is designed to prepare learners for the quickly changing world.

The middle school and high school programs will guide learners to take the next step into building their real-world experience by completing apprenticeships, forming strong mentor relationships, and completing the Next Great Adventure curriculum. These tools will guide them to find their calling, and to write their own Hero’s Journey story, whether that’s going to a top college or creating the next great start-up.
