Implementation Q & A

When you first implemented blended learning, why did you choose that particular model? (has your model changed? why?)


We found Acton Academy's system resonated with us and fit all the main points we were looking for and felt were challenged with the traditional system. Having a model school to follow with years of experience, as well as a large and growing group of new school founders, to learn from is an incredible boost for us.

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


Recruiting students is still the biggest challenge for us but we are happy to have found excellent families to join us for our inaugural year. We will continue to be honest as we grow and learn and evolve our program over the years.

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


We are still emerging to hard to say but I would say be clear in your mind what you are trying to create and why.

General

School Overview

A member of the Acton Academy family, Infinity School is a learner-driven micro school where the foundation is a modern one-room schoolhouse which incorporates a variety of best practices in education.

In this kind of environment, students of different ages mix, group interaction is amplified, and personalized learning trumps broadcast lectures and a one-size-fits-all curriculum. We use the latest in game-based adaptive computer programs, interactive Socratic discussions, and quest-like group projects for deeper integrative learning, in a studio increasingly run by our young learners.

The driving force for the learning experience is the narrative of the Hero’s Journey, where each student is a hero on a journey passionately discovering his or her gifts in order to find a calling that will change the world.

Character, dedication, and hard work are valued higher than innate abilities and the efficiency of self-paced learning frees up more time for real world projects and group discussions.
