A TRANSFORMATIVE EDUCATION

Evergreen joins a growing network of Acton Academies worldwide, building on the success of the original Acton Academy in Austin, Texas. Watch the Disruptive Education docu-short video about how Acton is transforming education and helping children discover and cultivate their potential.

What Makes us Different

Latest technology in a self-paced learning environment

Evergreen uses the latest technology in a self-paced learning environment that is designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. Evergreen students are empowered to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and learners.

Children learn best by doing

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

Guiding students to learn with the Socratic method

We believe the learning experience is much richer when the teacher (“Guide”) offers insightful questions and facilitates hands on learning. Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to students’ questions with new questions. This exchange hones students’ critical thinking skills.

Power of Apprenticeships

We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Beginning in middle school, our students will obtain summer internships in a field they are passionate about. Acton students have interned with doctors, entrepreneur bakers, plumbers, attorneys and graphic designers. What will your child choose?

Development of personal virtues

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.
