Posted: 04/13/2022

Are you ready to change the world of education?

At Acton Academy, we believe every child deserves to be treated as more than just another cog in the machine. School should never crush your child's spirit, creativity, and passion for learning.

We treat every child as an individual in an environment that allows them to explore, create, and grow to develop the character, knowledge, and skills needed for the real world.

Acton Academy exists so every child can find their calling in life and change the world because when a child is in charge of their own future, they bring meaning to the world.

Position Description:

If you’re interested in education and innovation, this is your chance. Being a Guide at Acton Academy West Palm Beach is more like being a leader of a small, fast-paced startup. We believe that when a child is given the freedom to explore, create, and grow, they will find their calling in life and change the world. A journey, like ours, needs innovators and leaders – perhaps you.

Acton Academy West Palm Beach is seeking a Lead Guide for our Spark Studio who is ready to instill their love of learning in others and change the world of education. This is an opportunity to be an integral part of designing the foundation of the Spark Studio and be a part of one of the most innovative schools of the 21st Century.

As the Lead Guide, you will run an all-day Montessori classroom in a natural and comfortable setting that you help create. You will deliver our exceptional all-day program that supports the children's individual needs per Maria Montessori's philosophy and vision. Consistent with that vision, you will observe and track; give Montessori lessons; maintain the Montessori & Loose Parts environments; guide children during indoor work, outdoor play, lunch, and other activities.

You will be able to innovate and experiment with creative ideas and have space to offer your special gifts to the learners and the studio with a developing space and curriculum.


We are looking for someone with a deep curiosity about life, a lifelong love of learning, and an entrepreneurial spirit.

We seek people with drive and a lot of heart. Even if your experience isn't a precise match for the role, passion, leadership skills, and prowess will always win the day in our book. And if your career has taken you to some spectacular places, we love a good Hero's Journey story.

While not all necessities, we seek someone who has:
  • An entrepreneurial mindset and desire to work hard, solve problems and improve on everything they do
  • A deep love and respect for all children and empathy for the challenges children face in their lives.
  • A genuine desire to collaborate with colleagues, and a commitment to professionalism

  • A passion & curiosity for the Montessori philosophy and the discipline to embody Montessori values at all times
  • A commitment to practicing gentle, compassionate limit setting
  • A willingness to work in a year-round program (with time off for holidays; and flexible hours during student breaks)
  • Vulnerability and courage to try new things, make mistakes, and the ability to reflect

Those most successful at Acton Academy West Palm Beach will not be just looking for a job; they’ll be looking for a calling, they are on their own journey to leave the world a better place than they found it.
