Acton Academy is expected to open a new location in August at 223 Roswell St., Alpharetta, and is open now for fall enrollment opportunities for children ages 6-11. Described as a "microschool environment," according to owner Olivia Garza, Acton Academy's learning style is student-led and does not have grade levels; instead, students earn badges to prove mastery of skills and subjects. School runs Mon.-Thu. from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. with as much outside learning as possible, Garza said, as the Acton Academy building backs up to Wills Park. Additionally, students attend in five- or six-week sessions with one-week breaks in between sessions. 470-309-2136. www.actonacademyalpharetta.com
