As an Affiliate of Acton Academy of kids at Acton Oakland we have the same/combined what and why as educators and parents.
We want our kids and the next generations not to just be stable or successful, but achieve greatness & change the world in their awesome and unique way. We want to prepare them to be that special gift to humanity.
Because it is the human condition, we all have greatness in us, we all have genius in us. There isn’t a superhero movie we don’t align ourselves with the protagonist with, we want to be Harry Potter, Iron Man, Batman or Superman. We may not have superpowers, but we have super gifts.
That leads us to how:
As parents we started our journey when our kids were born. We experimented with multiple methods, home school, traditional schools and alternates as well, nothing really put it all together.
We then found out about Acton, we watched the videos. five days later, the decision was made, move to the closest Acton, the rest is history.
What keeps us going?
We keep on going to back to a some questions that keep us dedicated to this.
Does the traditional Education system cultivate the unique genius in my child?
From my experience going through the education system, the answer was NO.
Does the traditional education system teach you how to generate massive wealth?
Watching my father, an immigrant, build wealth and settle in a new country, the answer was NO.
For you these questions may be yes, but if it may be a no for you or somebody you know, please share and/or sign up for a tour.
Just some food for thought, kids going through school today don’t even know what careers will exist when they hit adulthood. How prepared are they to be that dynamic? For me I am confident that my Kids going through Acton will be prepared for an ambiguous future.
