If you believe your child is a hero who can change the world, Bravo!

We believe that 21st-century education should prepare young people for the fast paced ever evolving future that lies ahead, where uncertainty is the only constant.

We founded Bravo! because we wanted to offer our community the option we believe best meets the criteria for such an education, based on the Acton Academy model. We want to equip our children not only to thrive in an uncertain future, but also to help shape our world for the better.

Accepting 6 to 8-year-old heroes, limited availability!

Our Approach

  • 1

    Learner Driven

    We challenge children to take full ownership of their education by solving complex real-world problems using critical thinking, creativity and collaboration. To reach their full potential young learners set and attain their own goals, with long term orientation by our guides and support from their peers.

  • 2

    Self paced mastery

    Our learners have the opportunity to learn at their own pace, allowing them to quickly find their areas of strength while taking the time to attain mastery before moving on to others. This translates into being continuously challenged by their work, and thus be engaged and never bored.

    Mixed Aged Studios

    Learning is naturally achieved in an open and fun environment where children of different ages share their unique skills, abilities and interests. We believe that ability is not mandated by age, and that humans did not evolve to be segregated according to their age group.

    Hero's Journey

    We equip and inspire children to embark in a Hero's Journey, a powerful self-discovery adventure which instills purpose in their hearts, so their true passions set their paths and where curiosity, creativity and critical thinking lead them along the way. We set the stage for them to become independent life-long learners, find their unique gifts and change the world.

Our Mission

We believe each person who enters our doors deserves to find a calling and change the world.

until I saw it with my own eyes. The lessons of self-management and self-governance have prepared our fifth-grade daughter to be a lifelong learner.”
