If your passion is to fuel the love of learning in others while advancing your own personal, spiritual, and professional growth, this is your chance to get in on the ground floor of one of the world’s most innovative schools.

Acton Academy Palm Beach, part of the worldwide Acton Academy Network, is a Christian private microschool and learner-driven community with the mission that each person who enters its doors will find a God given calling and change the world. We combine elements of the Montessori method with Socratic guiding, hands-on experiential quests and interactive technology. Underlying our method is an application of the Hero’s Journey creating a lively learning environment that feels more like an adventure than school.

At Acton, we have mixed-aged classrooms called studios with a self-paced learning design as opposed to grade-levels. Our real world-oriented quests culminate in a public exhibition of learning as opposed to test scores and report cards. In all areas of Acton life, our learners are empowered to be in the driver’s seat of their learning.


While not all necessities, we seek someone who has:
• Experience working in customer service.
• Experience planning and implementing games or projects.
• Coaching or mentoring experience a plus.
• A passion for Christ.
• A passion for disruptive education opportunities.
• Deeply curious and ready to learn and work hard.
• Agile with online learning.
• Excellent writing and interpersonal communication skills.
• Entrepreneurial thinker.
• Reader.
• Deep heart for children and a trust and respect for their ability to learn and grow without heavy adult intervention.
• Kind-hearted and tough-minded.
• Independent worker.
• Calm demeanor.
• Secure in being on a Faith Based Hero’s Journey.


We are seeking a full time Elementary School Guide to work with our elementary school Eagles. Our Guide has the opportunity to lead with their faith out front and grow steadily into a leadership role on our Palm Beach Gardens campus.

We are looking for a smart, entrepreneurial individual who is passionate about God and guiding children on their independent journey of lifelong learning and who possesses an understanding of the Hero’s Journey and the Socratic Method.

Our Guide will learn to lead Socratic discussions through a variety of training opportunities under Socratic Master teachers, and will learn how to work with the Acton learning design, processes and systems.

Our Guide will equip our Eagles to explore and take ownership of their learning, monitor progress on curriculum, and create life-oriented projects that nurture curiosity.

Only registered members can apply for jobs.
