As parents we agonized over the decision of choosing a school for our children. The schooling model hadn’t evolved much since we were kids, but the world that our children would be entering would be wildly different. Was endless homework, frequent tests, and sitting behind a desk all day really the best way to prepare them for the 21st century world that they would be entering?
We didn’t think so and we yearned for something different. A place where meaningful skills are taught through real-world scenarios, where good character is rewarded, and where developing a problem-solving mindset is the goal instead of an afterthought. We couldn’t find a school in our community that matched what we were looking for but, through our journey and exploration, we found Acton Academy – a network of over 300 learner-driven communities across 25 countries. This was the model that we wanted for our kids so we decided to join forces to bring an Acton Academy to the east-side of Seattle and Creator’s House was born.
If you too are ready to reinvent education for your family then we encourage you to connect with us and see if Creator’s House may be a good fit for your young hero.
