About Us

Acton Academy Katy was founded in August of 2018 with the help of 6 Founding Families and 9 Founding Heroes. These courageous families and Heroes took on the challenge of redefining what education can look like in the 21st century.

I am a parent, on a journey, to fundamentally

change education around the world.

I have had a passion for teaching and learning since I was a sophomore in high school. I knew I wanted to pursue education as a career as a way to change the lives of those around me. Shortly after beginning my teaching career, I realized that education could be so much more and that the traditional model was not allowing its students to reach their full potential. When I had children of my own, I knew I had to do something to change the way they would explore their world through education.

I founded Acton Academy Katy to create an environment where children are allowed to be curious and make mistakes, but most of all to one day find their calling and change the world in a profound way. 

I believe that every child is a genius in his or her own way and that in the right environment, will accomplish more than we could ever imagine.
