Education Reimagined

Forget the educational paradigm you've known all your life. We're reinventing education, and your family can be a part of it.

A 21st century school in Princeton, NJ

We offer a truly different approach to school. Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades.

At Acton Academy Princeton, our students learn in collaborative classrooms of multi-age learners. Our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences.

At Acton Academy Princeton, we believe that learning to do, learning to be, and learning to learn are more important than memorization alone – learning to know.
