Our Mission

Acton Academy Southwest Austin exists to inspire each student who enters our doors to find a calling that will change the world.

Our Philosophy of Learning

We Believe That:

Clear thinking leads to good decisions,

Good decisions lead to the right habits,

The right habits lead to character, and

Character becomes destiny.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that every child has a gift that can change the world in a profound way.
  • We believe in a closely-connected family of lifelong learners.
  • We believe in learning by knowing, learning by doing and learning by being.
  • We believe in economic, religious and political freedom.

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."

Our Promises

Through Socratic guiding and experiential learning, each member of our community will:

  • Begin a Hero's Journey

  • Learn to be a curious, independent, lifelong learner.

  • Develop a deep respect for economic, political and religious freedoms.

  • Cherish the arts, wonders of the physical world and mysteries of life on Earth.

  • Discover his or her most precious gifts and learn to use them to solve difficult problems.
