Plans for the future


Launch the first Acton studio at Camp Tilikum grades 2-6th guided by founders with ~20 students.


Launch a Spark Montessori Studio (K-2nd) to complement our Explorers Studio (3rd-6th)


Add second elementary studio and new studio to support grades 9-12.  


Seek a dedicated campus for 4-5 studios and 150 students.
