Hey there! We're growing quickly, so as of March 2022:

We have 3 spots left in our Elementary Studio.

We are accepting applications for our Middle School that launches in the fall of 2022

Amarillo Acton Academy

helps 1st-5th grade students discover and grow their unique strengths

because the world needs them.

Amarillo's first and Only learner driven school

Our mission is simple:

each child that enters our doors deserves to find a calling that will change the world.

School, as we know it, was designed in 1893

Our school was born different. Acton Academy is one of the newest and most innovative (and downright coolest) school designs in the world. Each Acton school was founded by parents who believe there is a better way to educate their children and help other like-minded families in their community.

Are you frustrated with the old, traditional educational model that teaches students to spit out facts and pass state-mandated tests?

Our promise to your child

We believe each of our students will find a passionsomething they love and have a gift to do – finding and pursuing this gift we call the Hero’s Journey. Our mission is to equip our students with the skills and tools they will need to find and pursue their life’s purpose.
