Acton Academy Guide
  • Students create and sign a Contract of Promises describing how each individual will act and the consequences for violating community norms.
  • Mentor teams encourage younger and older students to listen, affirm, set goals and hold each other accountable.
  • "Learn to Be" badges that celebrate character and completing leadership challenges.

We believe that:

Clear thinking leads to good decisions,

Good decisions lead to the right habits,

The right habits lead to character and

Character becomes destiny.

Acton Academy Alpharetta Badges
