A school that empowers your children to thrive

We felt there was more to school than the outdated traditional school model that emphasizes fitting into the box rather than charting your own path. If you're like us and believe there's more to education than test taking and lectures let us send you a FREE info kit. Let's reinvent education for our kids right here at Acton Academy Pittsburgh!

What is Acton Academy Pittsburgh?

What is the difference between

Acton Academy Pittsburgh and other schools?

  • We use the latest technology in a self-paced learning environment that is designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. Acton Academy Pittsburgh learners are empowered to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and learners.

  • We believe learners learn by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tidepool habitat, playing a musical instrument, painting a mosaic, or programming a robot, Acton Academy Pittsburgh learners are building real-life skills in the classroom every day.

  • We believe the learning experience is much richer when the teacher (“Guide”) offers insightful questions and facilitates hands-on learning. Guides use the

    Socratic method, always responding to learners' questions with new questions. This exchange hones learners' critical thinking skills. No boring sit in your desk teacher-led lecture-style learning at Acton Academy Pittsburgh!

  • We are “learner-driven.” This means young people take ownership of their education and peer relationships. Acton Academy Pittsburgh learners learn to think independently, take responsibility and embrace challenge. They are being prepared to bring their own unique genius to the world.

  • We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Beginning in middle school, our learners obtain summer apprenticeships in a field they are passionate about. Acton Academy Pittsburgh learners have apprenticed with media agencies, veterinarians, interior designers, entrepreneurs, attorneys and historians. What will your child choose?

  • We encourage our learners to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy. Armed with purpose and good character, we believe our learners will launch into adulthood prepared to find their calling and change the world.

Need to know more about what

Acton Academy Pittsburgh can do for your child?

At Acton Academy Pittsburgh, we call our classrooms "Studios" because learners are learning through movement, exploration, and hands-on activities. Find out how our learning design can help your child reach their full potential by digging into our info kit.

*Even if your child's studio is currently full -- We encourage all families to still go through the audition process if you are interested in Acton Academy Pittsburgh as we often have seats come open when learners level up in their studios mid-year or a family moves away.GET STARTED TODAY WITH AN INFO KIT!
