Information sessions are two hour long presentations and tours intended for parents, guardians, and other adults who would like to learn more about Acera. You’ll hear from Courtney Dickinson, Founder and Director of the Acera School. Learn about our mission, approach, and profiles of students whose needs are met by Acera.

Ask questions and tour the school, hear about classroom themes and our individualized and project-based educational strategies. Stay after the session to engage and talk more about pedagogy, admissions process, and your child. All Parent Info Sessions take place at 5 Lowell Avenue in Winchester.

We believe in a multiple-intelligences approach to defining giftedness. We’ve created Acera as an alternative for students who love to solve problems, make things, ask deep questions, and thrive with an opportunity to create. Acera students experience regular school as a place with a ceiling that is too low, where they are not able to learn at a rapid enough rate or with enough depth and engagement to honor their voracious appetite for ideas, knowledge, and expression. Creative thinkers, robust readers, and deep thinkers experience a sense of belonging at Acera, a place with a runway that aligns with each students’ interests and potential.
