A 21st century school with locations in Chesapeake and Virginia Beach

Acton Academy Hampton Roads is part of the Acton Academy network –a network of true learner-driven micro schools started in Austin in 2009– and considered by many to be a leading model of K-12 innovation in the United States.

We believe it is the most nurturing, deep-learning, student-centered learning environment in the world, and we're thrilled to share it with intentional families in our community.

At Acton Academy Hampton Roads, we believe that learning to do, learning to be, and learning to learn are more important than memorization alone – learning to know.
