If your passion is to fuel the love of learning in others while advancing your own personal 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 Verona, created in 2017, is a private micro-school and learner-driven community with the mission that each person who enters its doors will find a calling and change the world. We currently serve elementary aged students grades 1-5 and plan on expanding over time. We are part of a community of 90 locations worldwide and over 5,000 applications from entrepreneurial parents pending to open more. 

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 students are empowered to be in the driver's seat of their learning. 

We are seeking a full-time Lead Guide with a Montessori background to work with our elementary school Eagles. Our Guide has the opportunity to grow quickly and steadily and ultimately open his or her own Acton Academy with the start-up expenses paid by a special bonus. 

We are looking for an individual who is passionate about guiding children on their independent journey of life-long learning. If this is you, learn more about our school at and about the Acton philosophy at
