ABOUT US

Hi! My name is Sydney Loper, and I am a mom of 3, wife to Ryan, and founder of Acton Mobile. I am wondering if we might have a few things in common.

If you're like me, you:

- tried traditional school or home school, but still felt there needed to be more to education

- believe your children deserve a childhood without homework, constant testing, & pressure

- hope your children can learn real-world skills through hands-on projects

- would love your children to be in a small school where they are given individualized encouragement

- desire your child to be somewhere kind, with meaningful friendships & where learning to develop character and faith are valued

Even though I never expected to launch a school, it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am very grateful God led me to Acton.

If you are ready to reinvent education for your family, I encourage you to schedule a school tour. We look forward to meeting your family!

Sydney

MISS SAMANTHA

Spark Studio Guide

“Hello, my name is Samantha. Some fun facts about me are I love teaching children, I am fluent in sign language, and I love music. I have found that through utilizing different outlets such as ASL, music, and creative movement, it proves to be a great addition of how to teach new and fun skills. These skills aid in children being able to expand on the importance of their learning of the basics of phonics and vocational skills. Through teaching dance and running a class out of my own home, I was able to practice the skills of teaching and organization, which prepared me to be a K-4 teacher and in turn, years later, has led me to where I am now in life receiving my bachelor's degree in psychology with a concentration in childhood and adolescent development and continuing to take steps to guide, encourage, and direct children on their individualized learning paths!”
