Begin your Family's Journey

This process is designed to make sure that Ascend: An Acton Academy is the right fit for your child and your family.

We recognize that we ask you to dedicate time and thought to the process. Families who are thriving in our community often share that they truly enjoyed the process, and we hope you do too.

Get Started


Audition Form

We want to know who you are! Let us know you're interested. This is the first step of the audition process.



For learners in the Elementary and Middle School Studios, after meeting with your family, we’ll invite your child for a two-day audition.

Learners in the Early Learning and Spark Studios are invited to a 2-hour parent and child in-studio observation.

Our goal is that your learner will get a feel for the day-to-day, meet members of the tribe, and hopefully will know if they can succeed in our learning environment.


Invitation to join

Following the meet-up, if we believe Ascend Acton Academy would be a good fit for your family, we will invite you to join. Congratulations!
