We have a special space for 4-6 year-olds at Acton Academy--the Spark Studio!

Participation in Spark is an excellent way to lay a preschool/Pre-K/Kinder foundation in a nurturing environment with the highest standards of excellence.

For families planning to continue their Acton adventure beyond preschool and Kindergarten, Spark is a bridge between home and the Acton Academy Elementary Studio. Enrolling in Spark is a wonderful way for the whole family to get their feet wet with the systems and culture of Acton Academy!

Children in the Spark Studio:

  • Listen to and dialogue about excellent stories
  • Learn kindness and community engagement through high-quality play inside and outside
  • Begin simple goal setting, reflection, and contract making
  • Work with Montessori materials to grow their reading, writing, and math skills
  • Play games that engage their mind, body, and spirit
  • Participate in beginner Socratic discussions where they learn to articulately agree or disagree with other children
My daughter has gained more patience with her younger siblings, and I think a lot of that emotional growth has occurred during school hours. Her interactions with other learners and guides, as well as the subjects she is learning, have all served her well.
