Do you believe in heroes? We do! Welcome to the Believe in Heroes Summit. Throughout this virtual summit we will be exploring the “why” behind Acton Academy. Why are we here, and why do we do what we do? Simply stated, we do it for you! At Acton we believe that every person who enters our doors deserves to find a calling to change the world using their own unique genius. We will also be exploring the “who” of Acton Academy. Who are we? Acton Academy is a worldwide network of learner driven communities, founded by parent entrepreneurs that believe in young heroes. Most importantly, however, Acton Academies are led by their learner driven heroes.

Because some registrants did not receive the link to the Summit on May 1st, the recordings will be temporarily available here through May 13th.
