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.
Learn to Do
What skills do you need to change the world? Every day we're standing in the shoes of doctors, designers, presidents, and builders, learning the skills and tools that heroes have mastered. We call it a Quest.
Learn to Learn
The world is changing fast. The skills of tomorrow aren't the skills of today. Take with you a DIY toolbox of curiosity, grit, trial-and-error, joy, and perseverance. You've confronted new things before. You can learn anything.
Learn to Be
No other accomplishment matters unless you've built a life you're proud of. Have you become a good person? What relationships have you nurtured? What habits have become part of your character?
