Accepting The Call to Adventure - A Note from the Harsins on our New Launch DateRead Now
New Launch Date Announced!
We are excited to announce our new launch date of November 16th, 2020 to meet the needs of our founding families in this current moment.
My wife and I originally envisioned opening in the Fall of 2021. This aligned well with our daughter starting Kindergarten next fall and as busy working parents of three little kiddos, the idea of 18 months of planning sure seemed much less daunting.
As we started speaking with our founding families, we quickly realized of all the years for these families to sit and wait for their dream school, this was NOT the year.
We decided to see how we could speed up our time table and meet their needs. We immediately began a hiring search while also looking for the perfect location. Within weeks we had hired our rock star guide and found our ideal location, but it still wasn't how we envisioned launching.
We still needed a handful more families to join us on this journey and there was still about six months of prep, planning, and training to fit into the next few months.
Yes, we want to deliver on all our promises, yes we want all the pieces to be planned exactly right, but we also realized, we wouldn't be true to the Acton spirit if we waited until the timing was perfect and all our ducks were in a row. This is our own hero's journey after-all!
No hero, whether it be George Washington, Anne Frank, or even Harry Potter feels truly prepared when they are called upon. What's worse, had they waited they would have missed their chance to change the world.
We know it won't be perfect, we know there will be bumps in the road, but we are excited to meet our call to adventure and cross the threshold into the unknown with a small group of founding families by our side!
