Monserate Christian Academy
A One Room Schoolhouse Designed for the 21st Century

  • As an Acton Imprimis we use the latest adaptive technology in a self-paced learning environment designed to foster responsibility, goal-setting, and teamwork. Our learners are empowered to thrive in a world that needs independent, motivated thinkers and problem solvers.

  • 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, Monserate learners are building real-life skills in the studios every day.

  • We believe the learning experience is much richer when the Guide offers insightful questions and facilitates hands on learning. Guides use the Socratic method, always responding to learners’ questions with new questions. This exchange hones learners’ critical thinking skills.

  • Monserate Christian Academy is “learner driven.” This means young people take ownership of their education and peer relationships. Our learners think independently, take responsibility and embrace challenge. They are being prepared to bring their own unique genius to the world.

  • We believe in the power of apprenticeships. Beginning in middle school, our learners have apprenticeships in a field they are passionate about. Acton learners have interned with doctors, entrepreneur bakers, plumbers, attorneys and graphic designers. What will your child choose?

  • We encourage our learners to develop honesty, hard work, responsibility, kindness and empathy. Armed with purpose and good character, we believe our graduates will launch into adulthood prepared to find their calling and change the world.
