The A.C.E. Educational Programme has been produced by Christians with advanced degrees in Education and years of teaching and classroom experience. Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) has been used in many Christian schools in the U.K. for decades.
The programme is reviewed and updated continuously, and its distinctive features are: Biblical traditional values, academic excellence, diagnostic testing, individualised instruction, mastery-based learning and reasoning skills.
The basic curriculum, which all students study, has five core subjects: Mathematics, English Grammar/Literature, Social Studies (Geography, History & Community) and Word Building (Spelling). There is a controlled vocabulary which runs through all subjects so that every new word a child meets is clearly explained.
In the ACE curriculum, each subject is presented in workbooks called PACEs which are working documents that lead the students, stage by stage, through each subject. Students master the material at a speed consistent with their ability as they work in their own workstations/offices in the Learning Centre. The knowledge in a PACE builds upon what the child has learned in the previous PACEs. In this way they are constantly adding to a store of knowledge. PACEs allow children to progress steadily through the curriculum, building a secure core of understanding. Advancement to new material is not permitted until testing demonstrates that the student has thoroughly comprehended all the material contained in the previous PACE.
The Learning Centre develops responsibility, concentration and self-control while the wisdom, intrinsic to the PACE content, develops truthfulness and selflessness. All other classes enrich and build on this solid foundation.
The Academy provides academic training in a Christian atmosphere that enriches lives, builds character, and encourages full-time Christian living and service.
