He or she will:
1. Begin a Hero's Journey.
2. Learn to be a curious, independent, and lifelong learner.

LEARNING AT ACTON
Learning to Learn
Socratic Discussions and self-paced challenges equip children to be independent lifelong learners.
Learning to Do
Hands-on Quests for Science, Entrepreneurship, and the Arts prepare children for Apprenticeships and real-world challenges.
Learning to Be
The Hero’s Journey, relational covenants, and real-world consequences transform difficult decisions into virtuous habits.
Our Learner-Driven Communities are run mostly by our students, where closely connected families of lifelong learners are bound by clear covenants; and “Learning to Do” and “Learning to Be” are even more important than “Learning to Know.”
