Greenfields Academy is an independent, progressive school opening on the north side of Chicago. In the fall of 2014, we will welcome our first class of learners, aged 5-10, to join us on the journey to reinvent education. In future years, we will grow into a K-12 school. Our learning community is modeled after the Acton Academy in Austin, Texas.
It is our mission to join our students on a journey of self-discovery. We empower them to find and nurture their passions and develop a vision of who they want to be in the world. We work together to develop the academic and real-world skills to help them become their best version of themselves. Each of our graduates will be prepared to leave their unique mark on this world, and in doing so, lead a full, happy life that is profoundly rich with meaning and purpose.

These changes replace a one-size-fits all environment with one that puts the student at the center of a learning community where each child is empowered to become the best version of themselves.
