A 21st century learning academy in Orange County

Wonderstorm Academy is part of the Acton Academies network – a network of true learner-driven micro schools started in Austin in 2009 – and considered by many to be a leading model of K-12 innovation in the United States.

We believe it is the most nurturing, student-centered, deep-learning environment in the world, and we're thrilled to share it with intentional families in our community.

Our Philosopy of Learning

We believe that learning to learn, learning to do, and learning to be are far more important than textbooks alone.

Learn to Do

What skills do you need to change the world? At Wonderstorm, every day we're standing in the shoes of doctors, designers, presidents, and builders, learning the skills and tools that heroes have mastered. We call it a Quest.

Learn to Learn

The world is changing fast. The skills of tomorrow aren't the skills of today. Equip yourself with a toolbox of curiosity, grit, trial-and-error, joy, and perseverance. You've experienced yourself learning and accomplishing all sorts of things you thought you could never do bedore. Now you know you can learn and do anything.

Learn to Be

No other accomplishment matters unless you've built a life you're proud of. Do you love the person you have become? What relationships have you nurtured? What habits have become part of your character?
