A School That Empowers Your Children to Thrive
A Montessori inspired Private School serving ages 3-14 in St. George, UT with a focus on empowering young people to find their unique passions, talents, and interests, so they can become who they are meant to be.
At Acton Academy St. George, we are rethinking education to prepare learners for the 21st century. We use project-based hands-on learning, outdoor adventure play, and the latest in game-based learning in a self-paced learning environment to build a tightly bound community of lifelong learners. We set aside high stakes testing and rote memorization for character-based development and agency to foster meaningful growth in our learners.
This is Acton Academy St. George
From before we even became parents, we knew we wanted the best education possible for our children. We knew of a school that would embrace the individuality and agency of our children while building their character and giving them room to fail and learn.
But that school didn't exist in St. George, UT and for us it was the only option, so we started it.
Along with 270+ other owners, we believe Acton Academy delivers on everything we dreamed of school to be and know that it closely aligns with the values of Southern Utah residents. We'd love to show you how.
