Kindergarten through 9th Grade

At Evergreen we lay the foundation for the joy of learning as we encourage our young heroes to find their life’s calling and tap into their unique genius. Our well-balanced educational experience ignites curiosity, creativity, critical-thinking and the ability to ask good questions.

If you are looking for an educational setting where your child will cultivate 21st century skills, develop strong character, and embrace a strong sense of self and purpose, Evergreen is the place for you. Matina Hunnell is passionate, creative, and skilled in leading the work of Evergreen Acton. The innovative learning design engages students to be lifelong learners and help them discover their calling. I wholeheartedly recommend Evergreen and its team!

Acton has been an important stepping stone for our daughter to grow into her full potential. During the past two years, we’ve seen her build confidence, develop a willingness to try difficult things, and experiment with leading her peers. She’s become comfortable with public speaking, acting and goal setting. She’s literally taken charge of her academics. And in all of this, she’s learning to become a self-directed critical thinker. Good stuff.

We are so happy to have found Evergreen Academy! The only negative is that I wish we had found them sooner so that our older children would have had this education experience. I can already see that our child is developing a love of learning. We are excited that the education environment Evergreen fosters allows the learners to move at their own pace in different subjects while challenging them to grow their skills.
