I felt that I had to start this school. Here's why.
During a recent tour with parents interested in our program, I was asked this common question, “What prompted you to start this school?” I’ve answered ...
Learning in schools has changed.
Infinity School is the future of eduction — today. Our program is a true 21st Century one at the leading edge of education innovation where the focus is on the learners and their growth as a whole person. Children and youth attending school here feel cared for, supported, and seen, and they are digging more deeply into learning with those foundations in place.
You won’t find the limits that bureaucracy, outdated curriculums, large classrooms, or closed mindsets can have here in this school.
Our mission at Infinity School is to help everyone find their place in the world. This means we continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate. Our school is a place for anyone.
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.
