Sintesi dell'editore

Courage to Grow tells how a small school in Austin, Texas, sparked a worldwide awakening of families, who believe every child deserves to find a calling that will change the world. 

In an age where Google shares information, Uber shares cars, and Airbnb shares rooms, Acton Academy turns learning upside down by equipping children to share learning with each other, in a close-knit community with extremely high standards of excellence. 

Word of Acton's transformative impact is spreading, family by family. Over 50 Acton Academy affiliates span the globe, with applications pending from more than 6,300 entrepreneurial parents who want to start a learner-driven community. 

Courage to Grow is not a "how to" book, but a fast-paced story of courageous families who found more compelling ways to learn and grow. Along the way, parents and children discovered the questions, tools, and frameworks we all need to forge a stronger character and supercharge human potential. 

Like all good tales, Courage to Grow has a surprise ending, a final lesson you won't want to miss about parenting and the courage required to live life to its fullest.

Agency-based education is how things should be

I loved this brief look into the Acton academy. if only educators would realize that children are adults and need to be treated with the freedom that adults enjoy otherwise they will grow up feeling that it's okay to compel others to do the things they think are best for them. This is a critical public problem as well because anyone who grows up in the public education system has the mindset that that's how everyone should be educated. It's a hurdle that needs to be overcome mentally for adults to see their children is capable of doing something greater with their freedom given to them.

I’m so in love with the Acton System

I appreciate Laura and her husband Jeff for starting Acton Academy. My daughter is going to an affiliate now in North Austin, and I can say that it works.

I’ve watched my sweet girl go from crying everyday at a “normal” school due to mean girls and being told to sit down and shut up for 7 hours, to a thoughtful, proactive learner who can explain and defend her projects to a room of 30+ adults.

It’s been amazing. This was a great inside look to the whole process of how Acton was born. I’m so grateful it was.

A Work of Art

Laura Sandefer speaking in her own words about the revolutionary, game changer that is Acton Academy is as much artwork as it is deeply informative. The Acton model is seemingly years ahead of any other educational model in preparing children for tomorrow’s future, and it is only getting better. The network is growing at a meteoric rate, and yet this beautifully told story details a family’s journey to fill a need for their own children had an incredibly humble beginning. For an experienced educator like me who wants more for my children, this compelling, empowering and concise audiobook serves as a roadmap and fuel to get started on your own Hero’s Journey. I cannot recommend it high enough and I cannot thank Laura enough for opening her heart to the world in this instant masterpiece.
