A DAY IN THE LIFE

Our learners are encouraged to explore, experiment and push the limits. To imagine, create and investigate in an environment that fosters education through PLAY and FUN!

"What we learn with pleasure, we never forget!" ~ Alfred Mercier

A TYPICAL DAY

There is no such thing as a "typical" day at Acton Academy North Broward, but you will always find learning, FUN, and innovation in the studio.  We structure our day with three main blocks of time.

 

Morning:  

We come together each morning for a launch to reconnect and set the tone for the day. Learners then break off to work toward their S.M.A.R.T goals for core skills, followed by recess.

Afternoon:

Learners regroup in the studio and work together on Quests. They create their own businesses, produce plays, publish books, develop video games, and more.  Through these hands-on projects, learners discover and develop their unique talents and passions.

Rotating:

​Each day, time is provided for either physical education, art, music or science.

"Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness;

but direct them to it by what amuses their minds,

so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy

the peculiar bent of the genius of each."

~Plato
