Curious Minds and Acton Academy provides an enriched and diverse learning environment for our students. Our School is located in Hamilton and reflects the various backgrounds and cultures of the area. We are passionate about educating and creating a safe learning environment for each child.


Curious Minds and Acton Academy  begins when Stephanie and Jim Cass moved to Hamilton in 2016. Stephanie  saw the need the town had for childcare and new learning environments. Ms. Steph, having over 25+ years of teaching experience, she decided to start Curious Minds Montessori and Preschool in the summer of 2018. After experiencing a year of such rapid growth, Curious Minds decided to expand! By September of 2019, Curious Minds grew to include Infant, Toddler, Preschool. In 2019 Acton Academy Hamilton was founded which educates children kindergarten through high school.  In 2022 expansion continued with the purchase of  Curious Minds Preschool in Corvallis.
