About Us

Our Mission

Our mission is to guide each child to understand the world around them and the talents within them so that they can find a calling and change the world.

We strive to enrich and enhance the learning experience for homeschooling families.

What is Acton of the Rubies?

We are a nonprofit learner driven community providing educational resources to homeschooling families in Elko County.

Our Learner Driven Community puts children at the center of their learning, allowing them to create and maintain personal goals and relational covenants where “Learning to Do” and “Learning to Be” are even more important than “Learning to Know”.

Why an Acton Experience?

A letter from Angie Heguy, Parent and Founder of Acton of the Rubies.


Truly, there are a hundred reasons why I chose Acton (and Acton chose me), but the main reason my family and I brought Acton to Elko is simple: the world needs more entrepreneurs, independent thinkers and leaders. Acton Academy is a quickly growing network of learner driven communities throughout the world. We believe it is the most integral, innovative and enriching program out there. It provides the right setting for a child to explore the world with his or her own unique talents while also providing a space to advance their knowledge, gain insights into life’s tough questions and learn practical skills to help them thrive in today’s world.

A letter from Sarah Bitton, Parent and Director of Acton of the Rubies.

Acton of the Rubies has a natural way of blending life and learning. The secret is a learner led atmosphere where everyone  discovers their potential and uses their unique talents to make our world better. Acton of the Rubies creates leaders by inspiring innovation, igniting imaginations and instilling confidence. Acton combines the most effective teaching practices, philosophies and principles from Montessori to Socratic discussions to twenty-first century technical programs in a game format where learning badges are earned by mastering core skills. 

This gives a sense of accomplishment and pride.  Acton is very family focused and encourages parents to play an active role in creating a safe place where their children can freely grow into themselves. Here at Acton, all of us are pursuing a hero’s journey, one quest at a time. We would love fellow travelers to join us and start their own hero’s journey.
