Kinder-6th

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.

I am so grateful and amazed at Acton Academy! Acton has truly become a place where my children are thriving and loving learning. They love school again and have the ability to explore while learning.

The thought of a learning environment that incorporates active learning, includes all the senses, and emphasizes a pursuit personalized to your individual gifts, sounds amazing. What kid doesn't deserve that?

  • Electronic and hard copy Portfolios capture rough drafts, photos, video and other creative work.
  • Public exhibitions at the end of most Quests allow young heroes to present work to experts, customers or the public for a real world test.
