Discovery Studio
(Ages 8-11)

Accomplish important work and play well with others

An Acton Elementary Studio is like a close-knit neighborhood where learners tackle important work, solve problems, collaborate with peers, and engage in increasingly challenging games.

Discovery learners:

  • Ask great questions.

  • Have fun and welcome others.

  • Set and track goals.

  • Build a solid foundation in math, reading, writing, and Civilization.

  • Explore, are curious, and develop a love of learning through hands-on project-based learning.

 

Studio schedules follow a general organizational structure but vary daily, week-to-week, and session-to-session. Here is an example of the Discovery schedule:
