Acera, the Massachusetts School of Science, Creativity and Leadership, is a progressive non-profit STEAM school serving high-ability students in grades K through 8th. At Acera, students learn by ability, not age; in a supportive, energetic environment, enabled by highly motivated, experienced teacher-entrepreneurs.
Our mission is to:
- Engage each child in project-based, contextual learning across disciplines.
- Inspire students to become the problem-solvers, innovators, creative thinkers and leaders of tomorrow.
- Create a microcosm of what is possible in education.
- Engage communities in a new dialogue about innovation, creativity and joy in STEAM education.
Acera was founded in 2010 with 30 students. In 2013, the school found a permanent home at 5 Lowell Ave in Winchester and currently serves 115 students. Our state-of-the-art facility includes a MakerSpace and a fully equipped science lab.
Our After School Programs are open to non-Acera students. We offer rolling enrollment based on availability.
