Spartek Academy: An Acton Academy

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”

– William Butler Yeats

Spartek Academy: An Acton Academy is a 21st-century micro-school for grades 1-8. Learner-driven technology, Socratic discussions, hands-on projects, and real-world apprenticeships are how we prepare our students for the hero’s journey.

Located in Columbia, MD, we provide a unique learning environment for students in the Baltimore-Washington corridor to find a calling and join a learner-driven community. (Our high school will open in the fall of 2022)

  • We believe each child has a gift that can change the world in a profound way.
  • We believe in a closely connected family of lifelong learners.
  • We believe in learning to learn, learning to do, and learning to be.
  • We believe in economic, political, and religious freedom.
