at Acton Hybrid Academy of Castle Rock
Our two day homeschool support Academy launched on September 1st 2020 in the middle of all kinds of crazy in our world but with God all things are possible and we were determined to keep life as "normal" as we could for our learners.
Our application process for the 2021-22 school year is underway for potential students ages 7&up! Last year we had eleven learners ages 10-13 in studio A and seven ages 13-16 in Studio B. To learn more about costs & details check out our webpage here.
We encourage you to bring the student(s) that are considering auditioning after watching at the videos below with you. The key to the success of the Acton model are students that are excited to join along with their parents, sometimes it takes time for them to understand the student-led environment so encourage them to watch the videos & attend with you. Most will know fairly quickly if this is a possible fit!
We trust you to make the right choices for your family regarding current community standards around health and safety. Thanks so much!
