Acera’s Mission

Acera provides students with boundless access to learning, offering accelerated students opportunity according to their ability, not age. The Acera community learns, discovers, and explores at a pace appropriate to each child’s unique motivation and potential. We encourage students’ innate curiosity and love of learning. Acera seeks to be a catalyst for change in the educational landscape by building 21st century schools in Massachusetts and inspiring innovation in all classrooms.

Acera focuses on developing the whole child’s brain and mind, through the pathways of science, creativity, and leadership.

SCIENCE embodies the ideals of exploration and inquiry that lead to discovery and new understanding. We will apply a systems-oriented approach to interdisciplinary studies including culture, English language arts, history, and humanities, as well as a wide array of scientific topics.

CREATIVITY engages multiple intelligences, supporting innovative thinking and artistic expression, that facilitate growth and independent learning. We encourage brave thinking and action to confront problems in new ways.

LEADERSHIP involves the development of self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Leaders take responsibility for the impact they have on others and on the community. Developing this skill set helps students to reach their full potential.

By fostering the character, knowledge, and talents of high ability students, Acera activates thinkers and innovators capable of leading positive change.
