In an age where Google shares information, Uber shares cars, and Airbnb shares rooms, Acton Academy turns learning upside down by equipping children to share learning with each other, in a close-knit community with extremely high standards of excellence.
Word of Acton's transformative impact is spreading, family by family. Over 50 Acton Academy affiliates span the globe, with applications pending from more than 6,300 entrepreneurial parents who want to start a learner-driven community.
Courage to Grow is not a "how to" book, but a fast-paced story of courageous families who found more compelling ways to learn and grow. Along the way, parents and children discovered the questions, tools, and frameworks we all need to forge a stronger character and supercharge human potential.
Like all good tales, Courage to Grow has a surprise ending, a final lesson you won't want to miss about parenting and the courage required to live life to its fullest.

Agency-based education is how things should be
I loved this brief look into the Acton academy. if only educators would realize that children are adults and need to be treated with the freedom that adults enjoy otherwise they will grow up feeling that it's okay to compel others to do the things they think are best for them. This is a critical public problem as well because anyone who grows up in the public education system has the mindset that that's how everyone should be educated. It's a hurdle that needs to be overcome mentally for adults to see their children is capable of doing something greater with their freedom given to them.
