Our Curriculum!

  • The accelerated christian education (A.C.E) program is individualised and is designed to allow each student to work on his/her own level of achievement which may vary from subject to subject. The founders of A.C.E. recognised that children are unique and learn in different ways and since its inception in 1970; A.C.E has endeavoured to provide biblical, individualised, Godly, character-building and educational materials to schools around the world. The curriculum includes five major academic disciplines: mathematics, english, social studies, science, and word building (traditionally called spelling).

    ACE recognises that each child has a unique learning style with God-given abilities and talents and has thus developed a learning approach that accommodates learners individual capabilities. The curriculum makes it possible for the learner to achieve their full academic potential and this is the foundation upon which future learning is built.

    From Pre-school to grade 12; each learner discovers how to:

    • - Set goals and meet deadlines
    • - Develop critical-thinking skills
    • - Think creatively and independently

    - Academic Achievement

    Academic achievement is one of the greatest strengths of accelerated christian education. Graduates from the A.C.E. program are attending more than 1,400 colleges and universities globally with outstanding performance.

    Conventional educational programs take the student through a spiral of material while introducing them to new skills in sequence. Since students are grouped chronologically, they are lock-stepped and receive the same material at the same time. However; students do not necessarily all have the same level of maturity as others of their chronological age and their natural learning rates are not lock-stepped with other students. The above average student may master the skill the first time he is exposed to it, the average student may pick up part of it, and the below average student will often grasp only a minimum amount or fail to understand it entirely. As the spiral continues some students stand out in front while others are left behind for a season (or for good).

    The A.C.E program is designed around a new format that is of building skill upon skill. The scope and sequence ignores the concept of grade level and moves with continuous progress beginning with the first skill to be mastered. Depending on their ability and motivation levels; students may move ahead rapidly or take as long as necessary, but each student masters the material.

    Each student learns essential academics and explores truths about God and His word without being pressured to keep up with a group.

    As the student moves upward, level after level and moves into new concepts, the student is far better prepared  to learn because they have mastered the skill on the previous level. He/she does not advance until they have mastered each concept. They are not lock-stepped with their classmates but are learning individually and completely before advancing. A.C.E. implements a unique and effective system.

    Why the A.C.E. Program Works

    The Accelerated Christian Education curriculum has been tried and proven to be very effective in providing all the basic academic disciplines as well as instilling Godly character into the lives of students. The reasons why the A.C.E. program works can be summarised in these Seven Key Foundational Concepts:

    1. - Integration of Biblical Principles (Scripture memory, wisdom principles)
    2. - Godly Character Training (A.C.E. characters, 90 character traits of Christ)
    3. - Mastery-Based Learning
    4. - Built-In Reinforced System of Learning
    5. - Individualised Learning
    6. - Development of Critical Thinking Skills
    7. - Socialisation

    With these foundational concepts being used now for over 50 years around the world, it is understandable why A.C.E. is known as THE learning tool for today—and the future!
