Session 1, Week 3: We are certainly on a Hero's Journey!
This is the time of year when we learn which of the anticipated great ideas we had in the summer planning phase have turned out ...
Learning in schools is going to be different next year.
We are experiencing an unprecedented, chaotic, and unpredictable time. We don’t know what next year will bring: we might have to go home again, we might be able to stay in the building, and we might have a list of requirements on how schools have to operate differently. What we do know is that, just as it happened this year, we won’t miss a single day of school for the entire year and will continue to learn in a comfortable, engaging way wherever we are.
Our Infinity School Eagles and staff was able to pivot, moving fairly seamlessly into home-learning in the middle of March. This was because our system was easy to pack up and take home with us! We invite you to look through this website to learn more about the Infinity School difference.
We are happy and sad to let you know that we are at capacity for the upcoming school year so won’t be able to accept any more registrations. Applications for the 2021-2022 school year will open October 19, 2020.
Unfortunately we are not able to show you around our building and give you the opportunity to meet our incredible team and existing learners until the middle of October. However, you can “e-meet” us by looking through our instagram account @InfinitySchoolCA or our Facebook page.
Using the Acton Academy model, our students develop the skills they really need: critical thinking, group collaboration, conflict resolution, decision-making, and problem-solving. These, along with “soft skills” like self-discipline, emotion regulation, self-awareness, and grit, position our children to tackle anything.
This learner-driven environment is for children who process at a different pace, can work independently, and want adults to get out of the way!

Core skills are developed by each student using self-directed, self-paced methods, and technology where appropriate. We allow students to learn on their own by providing a safe space to try, make mistakes, and by using Socratic teaching methods where we ask more questions than we answer. The learning is organized into projects and quests to demonstrate real-world experiences and provide context and meaning to their subject material. We continually inspire and motivate our students through examples of dedication, character, determination, hard work, and the success (in whatever form) that will bring.
