How Acton Board Chair John Mattis and his family first discovered Serenbe, Acton’s student driven model, and the exciting new campus coming to Mado.
Acton Academy at Serenbe takes a unique approach to education. The curriculum is totally learner-driven, empowering students to take charge of their education with teachers acting more like guides to ensure that young learners meet their goals. In just a couple of years, the school has blossomed from 34 students to over 200 as of Fall 2022. Construction for the new campus in Mado - which will include an organic farm and artist studio open to the entire community - has already broken ground. This incredible growth would not be possible without our guest today - John Mattis, a Serenbe resident and Board Chair at Acton Academy. Today, Steve and Monica chat with John about how he and his family first discovered Serenbe, Acton’s student driven model, and what’s next for our community school.
John Mattis has been very involved in the Serenbe community since moving to Chattahoochee Hills with his family and currently serves as Board Chair for Acton Academy at Serenbe.
