Implementation Q & A

What was one of your biggest challenges when going blended, and how did you overcome it?


Working with students to help them properly manage their time to accomplish goals and realize a longer time-horizon for their thinking. These issues are still ongoing, but we are working through them by shared best practices of the community and public accountability.

What's the one piece of advice you'd give to emerging blended-learning programs?


Every day is not going to be a great day and judge your success over the long term. Trust the student.

School Overview

Acton Academy Southwest is an independent private school inspired by the original Acton Academy in Austin, Texas. Acton Southwest is dedicated to developing a lifelong love of learning and an appreciation of entrepreneurial values in all students. Like other Acton Academies, Acton Southwest is aligned with particular learner-driven philosophies: Socratic Discussion, the Hero's Journey, and Entrepreneurship. The school uses a modern-day Montessori approach to core skills, collaborative workshops, and Socratic discussion methods to help students learn and develop a sense of who they are meant to be. Students at Acton Southwest are held accountable to meet their goals, work hard, and become contributing members of the community.
