Curiosity and Creativity.
Discover and do something new.

Creator’s House holds the belief that every child that walks through our doors has the ability to find a calling and change the world.

Creator’s House, an Acton Academy joins a growing network of Acton Academies worldwide. We join teams in Wisconsin, California, Toronto, Houston and London to open a new wave of Acton Academies to build on the success of the original Acton Academy in Austin, Texas. Watch this video about how we are reimagining education.

Education Reimagined

Are you frustrated with the old, traditional educational model that teaches students to spit out facts and pass state-mandated tests?
Watch this documentary video to see how Acton Academy (our affiliate school) is turning education upside down.

Our Mission

To inspire each child and their family who enters our doors to find a calling that will change the world.

What Makes Creator's House So Different?

Creator’s House uses the latest technology in a self-paced learning environment that is designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. Our students are empowered to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and learners.
We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Near the end of the elementary school, our students obtain summer internships in a field they are passionate about. Our students will intern with doctors, entrepreneur bakers, plumbers, attorneys and graphic designers. What will your child choose?
Creator’s House is “student led.” This means young people take ownership of their education and peer relationships. Our students learn to think independently, take responsibility and embrace challenge. They are being prepared to bring their own unique genius to the world.
We believe the learning experience is much richer when the teacher (“Guide”) offers insightful questions and facilitates hands on learning. Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to students’ questions with new questions. This exchange hones students’ critical thinking skills.
We believe children learn best by doing. Whether it’s launching a startup business, creating a tidepool habitat, playing a musical instrument, painting a mosaic, or programming a robot, Our students are building real-life skills in the classroom every day.
We encourage our students to develop personal virtues such as honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy. Armed with purpose and good character, we believe our students will launch into adulthood prepared to find their calling and change the world.
