Your child is destined to be a world-changer

Acton Academy Syracuse is a community of independent learners who come together in a shared workspace environment to experience project-based, hands-on learning with peers.

Opening Fall 2019

We offer a truly different approach to education. Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades. At Acton Academy Syracuse, our students learn in collaborative classrooms of multi-age learners. Our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences.

At Acton Academy Syracuse, we believe that learning to do, learning to be, and learning to learn are more important than memorization alone – learning to know.
