Is Acton Right For You?

Acton Academy is a grand adventure, but it isn't one everyone is ready or willing to embark upon.

In order to determine whether the Acton journey is right for you, we invite you to take these steps before going any further:

  • First: Take a few moments to watch through the Video Tour.
  • Second: Read "Courage to Grow" by Acton Main Campus Founder, Laura Sandefer. The e-book is .99 on Kindle, or free if you have Amazon Prime. If you'd like a hard copy, you can send your name and address to admin@actonabq.org with the subject line “Send Me a Book”, and we will send you a copy.
  • Third: Take a look at our Annual Calendar and be sure our year round schedule works for your family.
  • Finally: In order to earn your ticket to schedule a tour of our campus, please fill out THIS QUESTIONNAIRE, and email notification that you've completed it to admin@actonabq.org. We will follow up with a link to schedule your tour once we have reviewed your questionnaire.

Audition Process

  • Invitation to Apply: After the tour, we will send you a link to download the application.
  • Interview: After we receive your application we will schedule a final interview, if necessary, for both parents and the prospective student to address any final questions.
  • Studio Audition: If everything is aligned, your child will be invited to spend 2-5 full days as a student in the Acton Academy Studios. This final step gives us and you a good feel for whether our environment is a good fit or further development needs to take place before they are ready to fully integrate into the program.
  • Admissions Decision: We will convey our decision on the admission within a week after the interaction. The admission will be confirmed upon receipt of the admissions deposit.

  • Annual Tuition: K-1 Eagles' Nest: $8800; Elementary Studio: $8800; Middle School Studio: $8800.

    Non-refundable registration deposit of $400 to confirm enrollment. Sibling discount of 10% per additional student. Limited need-based financial aid is available for qualifying families.
