My name is Mike Ma, co-founder of Creator’s House. When my firstborn, Seth, was born and I began asking the questions all new parents ask about; parenting, education and how to raise him in a way that prepares him for the 21st century world.
The question that plagued me was if traditional school was the best education I could provide my children, knowing they are unique, they are creative and they have calling. I’ve been an entrepreneur and an innovator for as long as I can remember. In my heart I believed there had to be a better way! The idea of homework, frequent tests, sitting in a classroom all day, and conforming to a school agenda felt to me like I was wasting my children’s time and limiting their potential. It also felt like it was a system created for a world that’s quickly disappearing.
3 years ago, I got connected with a family. Jeff and Laura Sandefer had launched Acton Academy for their two young boys. I visited Acton and remember thinking, “Those kids are empowered, encouraged, and absolutely love learning. I would have given anything for that type of education.” I did not know that starting a school would be part of my entrepreneurial journey and for my family. But I knew this is what we needed to do, not just for us but also for our community. We have the opportunity to see “miracles” on a daily basis in the lives of kids and their families.
If you are ready to reinvent education for your family, I encourage you to connect with us. We look forward to meeting your family.
