Greenfields Academy is a private, independent K-8 school located on the north side of Chicago. We are a learner-driven community and currently have about 40 students in two mixed-age classrooms. We were founded in 2014 and are a part of the Acton Academy network of schools.
We offer a truly different approach to school. Supported by the latest in technology and cognitive science, we move beyond the traditional tools of lectures, homework, high-stakes tests, and grades.
At Greenfields, our students learn in collaborative classrooms of multi-age learners. Our flexible approach challenges each student with their own differentiated learning plan and inspires them through real-world projects and experiences.
