Active Leadership Academy: An Acton Academy is starting it’s 2nd year in Gonzales LA. Active is a learner-driven private school where 75% of our curriculum is hands-on and students are in charge of their learning.
There are no teachers, only guides, no homework, and no tests. How do our students learn? With a mastery-based approach. It’s simple: every student works at their own pace and shows mastery in that area before advancing.
Active Leadership Academy is an affiliate school of Acton Academy, based in Austin, Texas. Acton Academy has 300+ Affiliate schools worldwide and has been endorsed by Sal Khan, Founder of Khan Academy; Seth Godin, Author; and Sugata Mitra, Founder of School in the Clouds.
Acton’s disruptive educational model focuses on three things: learning to learn, learning to be, and learning to do. Students participate in Socratic discussions and self-paced challenges, which equips them to be independent lifelong learners. In addition, Hands-on Quests for Science, Entrepreneurship, and the Arts prepare children for apprenticeships and real-world challenges.
About the Founders:
Jeremy & Renee Molley, the Founders of Active Academy, are entrepreneurs and educators.
They are the owners and founders of Active Martial Arts, Active After School Program, and the Active Summer Camp; an organization with locations across the country. For over 20 years they have been helping residents in Ascension Parish (and around the country) become stronger mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially.
They found that Acton Academy aligned with their desires for their children’s education and felt compelled to start one in Ascension. “I chose to start an Acton Academy in Ascension Parish because I truly believe in the model. It takes the best elements of homeschooling and combines them with innovation and collaboration amongst students. Active is an environment where there are no limits to students’ learning and discovery. What students are good at, they can focus on now, and that’s powerful.”
Active Leadership Academy is enrolling in grades 1-6 for the 2021-2022 school year. The school will add a grade-level each following school year.
