Our school was born different. Acton Academy is one of the newest and most innovative (and downright coolest) school designs in the world. Each Acton school was founded by parents who believe there is a better way to educate their children and help other like-minded families in their community.
For the best experience, we encourage you to read this booklet on a tablet or PC.

We are the Molley family. Like many of you, we wanted to provide the best possible learning environment for our children that would spark their natural curiosity, inspire them to be lifelong learners, challenge them to grow in character, and equip them to be leaders that will change the world.
After exploring a range of educational settings, including public school, private school, and homeschool, we were unable to find anything that fit our vision of what education could be.
When we eventually came across the Acton model, we knew that it was EVERYTHING we were dreaming of...and MORE!
We knew we had to be part of this unique and special community and were thrilled at the opportunity to bring this special private school to other families in Ascension seeking a similar experience for their children.
Together, with parents, we work to make our school the perfect blend of individuality, curiosity, and community.
Our dream was to create an environment where meaningful skills are taught through real-world scenarios.
Where good character gets rewarded, and where developing a problem-solving mindset is the goal instead of an afterthought.
Where children are taught how to think, not what to think.
Where children wake up on Saturdays disappointed that there is no school.
