(4 - 7 YEARS)

Spark is an authentic Montessori environment focused on the development of the child as a whole: cognitive, physical, emotional, and social. Learners in Spark learn and discover through a carefully crafted balance of hard work and play, exploring their natural interests.

Our Spark heroes develop independence, order, coordination, and concentration that prepare them for the challenges ahead. Spark builds the foundations of reading, writing, goal setting, and independent learning skills that prepare young people to soar later on in Discovery Studio.


Learners also explore the arts, sciences, history, and the natural world through hands-on projects daily.

Begin your Application Process

At Acton Academy, our priority is providing the ideal learning environment for your child. Our enrollment process is carefully designed with this in mind, as we understand that an educational fit is not just for your child, but for our current students as well. We work closely with all prospective families to ensure new students are entering a community in which they will thrive and feel connected to their peers. It is a process we take very seriously as it is one of the most important decisions for us and for your family.


The audition process is open year-round to new learners who can join at the beginning of each new session (approximately every 6 weeks). We are currently accepting auditions from new families with children aged 2 to 15 years old.

Let's meet. Please fill out this form so we can get in touch with you. You will also receive our Info Kit after doing so.
