We believe each child who enters Arts Thereafter: An Acton Academy will find a calling that changes the world for Christ. Our Lions are independent learners who find great joy in learning, in a tight knit community that upholds the highest standards of excellence.
Our Learner Driven Communities are run mostly by our Lions, 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.”
JOY + RIGOR = MASTERY
"Embracing rigor is part of saying 'yes' to a Hero's Journey. Deep learning brings a special sense of joy, but the mastery required for a Hero's Journey goes even further, requiring commitment, discipline, and hard work towards a worthy goal."
