    Scurta descriere a companiei

    In 2019 Acton Academy Bucharest joined the global network of schools sharing the vision and standards of the first Acton Academy founded in 2009 in Texas. Our mission is to inspire each person who enters our doors to find a calling that will change the world. We are a private micro-school and learner-driven community. We combine elements of the Montessori method with Socratic guiding, hands-on experiential quests and interactive technology. At Acton, we have mixed-aged classrooms called studios with a self-paced learning design as opposed to grade-levels. We don't teach, we help learners find the right tools to achieve their learning goals; therefore, we have guides, not teachers. Acton Guides are adults who enjoy igniting the spark within young people, are great storytellers, believe in equipping and empowering young minds, can inspire and enjoy being inspired. They are always ready to empower young heroes to find their special gifts and strengths.
