Quotes that Inspire us…

“One of the secrets of the educator is to present nothing as stale knowledge, but to put himself in the position of the child and wonder and admire with him. For every common miracle which the child sees with his own eyes makes of him for the moment another Newton. The children, not the teachers, are the responsible persons; they do the work by self-effort…The teachers give the uplift of their sympathy in the work, but the actual work is done by the scholars.”
Charlotte Mason
“Parents who persistently fall on the side of intervening for their child, as opposed to supporting their child’s attempts to problem-solve, interfere with the most important task of childhood and adolescence: the development of self.”
Dr. Madeline Levine’s words in her book, The Price of Privilege
“At Acton Academy our job is to nurture not hinder the natural instincts of children. They are born ready to learn, ready to be a friend, ready to get up after falling down and ready to solve problems. Acton Academy is an invitation to a real life Hero’s Journey. The courage to say yes to the journey is the starting point for each child and parent.”
Laura Sandefer, Courage to Grow
