Start Date: October/November 2020
Acton Academy West is a preK-12 private school located in West Lake Hills that provides a truly unique and revolutionary “disruptive” educational model and is affiliated with the Acton Academy Network.
The Montessori method and principles permeate throughout the core of our philosophy and practice. We emphasize Socratic guidance as opposed to traditional teaching, mixed-aged classrooms with a self-paced curriculum as opposed to grade-levels, and life-oriented quests that culminate in a public exhibition of their learning as opposed to test scores and report cards. Within the boundaries of safe guardrails, students are empowered to be in the driver seat of their learning in an environment that is truly theirs. Moreover, our goal is to support each student on Hero’s Journeys as they seek to find callings and change the world.
We are seeking a full time Socratic Montessori Guide for the 2020-2021 school year. We are looking for an individual who is passionate about guiding children on their independent journey of life-long learning, and who possesses a depth, love, and commitment to Maria Montessori's methodology and materials.
Montessori certification is preferred, preferably AMI or AMS.
Guides are expected to prepare the learning environment, lead discussions, inspire our heroes to explore, be curious, and take ownership of their learning, and monitor student progress on our self-paced Montessori curriculum.
Our Spark program for ages (4-6) is not currently listed on our site but you can get an idea of our mission and core values on our current website.
Our guides serve as pillars of our learning environment and receive competitive pay, commensurate with experience.
