What is HLA?
The Homegrown Learning Academy is a micro school serving elementary age students located in Marietta, Georgia.
It has recently joined the Acton Academy network of independent schools, and will officially launch as an Acton Academy for the 2019-20 academic year.
HLA is designed like a one-room schoolhouse, with ages mixed so that peers can learn from and teach each other. Through its blended learning model, instruction is tailored to each individual student, but delivered with the camaraderie and collaboration of learning among a community of peers.
HLA views each student as a genius with unique strengths and potential, and encourages the pursuit of goals, dreams, and a calling in life . We aim to create an environment that inspires joyful learning and cultivates the habits of lifelong learners.
