What is the Acton Academy of Bergen County?
Acton Academy of Bergen County (AABC) is a private, learner-driven micro-school with the mission of supporting its learners in finding their calling to change the world. AABC is also an independent affiliate of the Acton Academy network of schools (a celebrated network of learner-driven micro-schools and the fastest-growing independent-school network globally).

Uphold AABC’s core beliefs and promises to its students and families.
Manage administrative tasks such as scheduling guest speakers, taking behind-the-scenes photos, supervising field trips, etc.
