1. What age range do you accept at AABC?

We are currently accepting learners ages 5 through 14 years old for our Sparks, Discovery and Explorer Studios.

2. What does it mean you are a micro-school?

We plan to have no more than 25 learners in each of our studios, which will make our school smaller than 100 learners in its full capacity.

3. What is the tuition?

Tuition is $9500 per year, per child. A yearly non-refundable registration fee of $400/child is required to reserve your child’s spot in the school. 

4. Is AABC accredited?

Yes. We are accredited by the International Association of Learner-Driven Schools (IALDS)

5. Is AABC a religious school?

While we expose children to the importance of mindfulness, ethical principles, and the significance of religion in history and the development of society, we are not a religious school. We value and respect individual beliefs.

6. Are you a part of a chain or franchise?

We are not a franchise or chain. AABC is an independent school that part of an affiliate network from which it finds its inspiration and receives mentorship from the founding Acton Academy in Austin, Texas.

Our network of affiliates is passionate about revolutionizing education, pursuing best practices, and protecting a learner-driven environment. Each affiliate follows their own methods in keeping with these commitments and varies based on the leadership at each school and community they serve.

7. What do you mean by "a Hero's Journey"?

We believe that each of us has a special calling in life, and a series of trials and tests that must be faced with integrity and purpose, in order to live a satisfying and fulfilled life. Our mission is to prepare your child for his or her special journey.

8. What do you mean by "Every child can change the world"?

We believe each of our learners will find a passion — something they love and have a gift to do. They will use this gift to serve others and fulfill a need they are passionate about in the world. This may be by becoming a shoe-shiner who tells stories and makes people’s day just by doing his job with love and vigor; it may be by becoming a coach who sees the light in a child’s eyes and guides her to pursue a dream; it may be by becoming a father or mother who leads a family on a Hero’s Journey; it may be becoming an entrepreneur or business leader guided by compassion and integrity, or it may be by becoming an artist or writer who brings beauty to people’s lives.
