Each individual at Acton Academy matters so we want to know WHO YOU ARE.
Because we only have a few spots, reserved for extraordinary people. We need to know what you’re made of and that you’ll never give up.
Most schools solicit applications; we’re a learning community that only accepts commitments from people who believe they are going to change the world. You have to prove yourself if you want a starring role in life.
