do you still believe in heroes?


We do. 

answer the call. Enter the story. Change the world. 

We believe each child who enters The Sanctuary Academy will find their God given calling that will change the world.  Each child will become part of a fellowship of peers who are heroes on a journey within the Great Adventure of Faith, Truth and Love.  Our children are independent learners who find great joy in learning in a tight knit community that embodies virtue and excellence. We are a community that models ordered freedom, shares learning, and travels the Way of Beauty. 

Are you and your family ready to join us?

Joy + Rigor = Mastery


Embracing rigor is part of saying 'yes' to a Hero's Journey. Deep learning brings a special sense of joy, but the mastery required for a Hero's Journey goes even further, requiring commitment, discipline and hard work towards a worthy goal.

PARENT TESTIMONIALS

Our daughter loves learning at Acton. She can’t wait to share her day the moment she jumps into the car. I’m so grateful to see a love for learning come back into her eyes.
— Parent, Acton Academy, Austin, TX
I would never have believed children could learn so much from each other – until I saw it with my own eyes. The lessons of self management and self governance have prepared our fifth grade son to be a lifelong learner.
— Parent, Acton Academy, Austin, TX
Eagles play hard and work hard. Our daughter jumped seven grade levels in Math in two years, but there wasn’t any magic to it; just encouragement from her friends and lots of hard work.
