Guest Bio

Tyson Junkers / Founder of Acton Academy Palm Beach

Tyson Junkers comes from a long line of entrepreneurs! His family founded HyTorc industrial bolting systems 50 years ago in New Jersey and it has grown to a global enterprise with more than 600 employees. That's where Tyson caught the entrepreneurial bug! After graduating with degrees in Film and Digital Art & Design, he began his journey launching his own design firm which led him to manage a multitude of websites for businesses across the globe with a specialization in 3D animation. He eventually landed at the family business for 17 years where he led brand strategy for HyTorc.

It was during the pandemic Tyson & his wife decided to leave New Jersey and head to Florida with their 2 children. When they could not find an elementary school for their kids that they loved, he leaned into his entrepreneurial spirit and decided to open his own school in Palm Beach County.

Acton Academy Palm Beach just launched in January and is a microschool that turns learning upside down. The school offers an innovative approach to education that celebrates personal responsibility, creative freedom, and the pursuit of one's life's purpose. There are nearly 300 Acton Academies worldwide, including locations in 27 countries. This innovative approach and hands-on learning environment at Acton Academy truly differentiate the school and its approach to educating the future generation.
