Lighthouse International is looking for promising leaders to co-create a school of the 21st century.

What is Lighthouse International?

Lighthouse International, founded in 2019, is an independent affiliate of the Acton Academy network of schools, a celebrated network of learner-driven micro-schools and the fastest growing independent school network in the world. We combine elements of the Montessori method with Socratic guiding, hands-on experiential quests and adaptive technology. Underlying our method is an application of the Hero’s Journey creating a lively learning environment that feels more like an adventure than school.

What is Acton Academy?

At Acton Academy, we believe children are on a journey—what we call the hero’s journey—to discover their calling. As part of this journey, children ask themselves: “Who am I? Where am I going? How do my passions and talents connect with the world around me? How can I serve a great need and one day change the world?” We have mixed-aged classrooms called studios with a self-paced learning design as opposed to grade-levels. Our real world-oriented quests culminate in public exhibitions of learning as opposed to test scores and report cards. In all areas of Acton life, our students are empowered to be in the driver’s seat of their learning.
