Application/Audition Process

Journey Academy is currently accepting applications to be placed on a waitlist for the fall of 2024 since all our studios are full.
Thank you for your interest!

Our application/audition process...

We look forward to exploring whether your family might thrive in our school. Our audition process is designed to make sure that we are the right school to serve the learning needs of your child and your family.

Journey Academy learning studios are full for the 2022 school year. If you would like to submit an application to be put on the waiting list, you may do so below.

Here are the components of application/audition process (they do not necessarily need to be completed in the order listed):

  • Complete your research on the Acton methodology. To avoid a poor fit and a move to a new academic environment, we ask each applicant family to familiarize themselves with the Acton model as your first step in the application process. We have many great resources to help you understand our model and consider whether your family would be a good fit at Journey Academy. Please watch or read as many of these recommendations as possible and be prepared to answer questions about them on your application: 

  • Watch the Ted Talk by Jeff Sandefer called ‘Rethinking Education’.

  •  Watch the ‘Virtual Tour of Acton Academy’ video. 

  •  Read through our Info Kit.

  • Watch our promotional video

  • Read through our contracts document to learn about our tuition agreement, Covid policies, Parent & Hero Contracts HERE.

  •  Complete the online Hero Application found HERE.

  •  Schedule a Parent Interview and a Hero Interview.

  •  Admissions decision: We will inform you of our admissions decision soon after your audition and interview. We have limited spots for fall of 2023 and we want to be sure that each Hero is a good fit with our unique approach to education. 

  • Pay Enrollment Fee: Admission will be confirmed upon receipt of the enrollment fee. This step will secure your enrollment in Journey Academy. Currently the enrollment fee is $500 and tuition for the 2022/2023 school year is $6,500, which can be divided into monthly payments.
