Children can change
The Wildflower Academy mission is to inspire each child and parent who enters our
doors to find a calling that will change the world.
Head of School at Wildflower Academy
"That is when I found Acton Academy a nonprofit foundation that helps parents open schools worldwide. Acton co-founders Jeff and Laura Sandefer opened the first Acton in Austin Texas in 2008 to create a more robust education for their two sons. They have taken their best practices and learning philosophies and are helping other like-minded families open schools all over the world. It was as if a blurry vision and determination to offer my kids the best education had suddenly become crystal clear."
Director of School at Wildflower Academy
"The question that plagued me was if a traditional school or even homeschooling was the best education I could provide my children. I didn’t want to settle for just ok – I wanted excellence. In my heart, I believed there had to be a better way!"
Founder Acton Academy
"What if children could share learning in a tight-bound community with a high standard level of excellence? What if they are encouraged to find a deep, burning need in the world that matches the deep, burning need in their heart? We believe children are far more capable than we have ever imagined. That's why we encourage them to embark on their hero's journey to change the world."
Using the tools and resources of the 21st century, children collaborate in a learner-driven community to discover their calling, develop their character and unique talents, and learn to take responsibility for their hero's journey.
