About Us

Acton Academy Port St. Lucie is a learner-driven education that guides each child on a journey to discover a calling and change the world.

Traditional schools follow a hierarchical model of top-down authority. At Acton Academy, we have guides who coach learners using the Socratic Method. We believe children must be enrolled on a journey of their own learning to truly learn anything at all.

We are an independent affiliate of the Acton Academy network, founded with the original Acton in 2009 in Austin, Texas. The Acton network includes over 300 academies across the globe.

Our Mission

Each person who enters Acton Academy Port St. Lucie will be given the tools to find a calling that changes the world.

What We Believe

Our Educational Philosophy

We believe that clear thinking leads to good decisions, that good decisions lead to the right habits, that the right habits lead to character and that character becomes destiny.

We believe that learners are the agents and primary drivers of their learning. We believe that the role of adults is to prepare the physical and social environment and craft and curate experiences to support the educational journey. The following are the methods and values practiced at Acton Academy:

  • Self-paced learning in math, reading, writing, and computer science.
  • Learn to love to read.
  • Discover how to ask good questions, lead projects, and work on teams.
  • Develop problem-solving skills: clear thinking, logic, and reasoning.
  • Socratic discussions hone critical thinking and speaking abilities.
