AABC's Founding

In August 2019, Acton Academy of Bergen County ("AABC") was founded by Michal Lesham and Shira Cohen. Before launching AABC, Michal worked as a Guide at Acton Verona in Oneida County, NJ. Michal was driven to open an Acton Academy out of a passion to provide (for her four boys and other young learners) a forward-thinking educational option in Bergen County, NJ. 



2019: AABC launches with 13 Learners, 2 Guides, and 1 Studio.​

2020: AABC nearly triples in size to 38 Learners, 4 Guides, and 2 Studios.

2021: AABC expands to 52 Learners, 6 Guides, and 3 Studios, with an enrollment waitlist.
