About The Forest School

The Forest School at Pinewood Forest, An Acton Academy is a 21st-century micro-school with learner-driven technology, Socratic discussions, hands-on projects, and real-world apprenticeships in a character-forging community. Scholars enrolled for the 2018-2019 school year will learn and practice entrepreneurship over an even longer time span.

At The Forest School, children are trusted and empowered to be responsible for their own learning, and to use their learning to change the world. Our learner-driven community puts children at the center of their learning, allowing them to create and maintain personal goals, relational covenants, and real-world meaningful work.

Learners at The Forest School learn together in mixed-age classrooms, bringing the classic one-room schoolhouse into the modern age. Kids learn to mentor and are mentored by one another. Guides—our term for teachers—are not lecturers, but facilitators of student growth. Learners and parents track learner growth on an online dashboard updated daily.

The Forest School will serve learners age 6-14 in year one, and ages 6-18 beginning Fall 2019.
