About Our Curriculums
Accelerated Christian Curriculum (ACE)
The Accelerated Christian Curriculum offers a non-traditional approach to education with solid, Christian values based on the Bible. Through the use of PACEs (Packets of Accelerated Christian Education) and other facets of A.C.E.’s program, countless students from schools and homeschools have successfully used the curriculum since the early 1970s.
The ACE Curriculum is different from other curriculum providers because it is an individualized, self-instructional, mastery-based approach. PACEs allow students to absorb subject material at their own pace rather than being forced to learn at a pace set by a teacher in a classroom environment. Instead of being labeled by a chronological grade, each student may advance according to individual learning abilities. For instance, a student placed in the fifth grade in a traditional school setting may be taking varying levels of PACEs in the A.C.E. system. This same student could be taking Level 4 math, Level 5 science, and Level 5 English. Students may move ahead in some subject areas and proceed at a slower pace in others.
The A.C.E. program also enables schools to administer PACEs to multiple students on different grade levels with minimal staffing. Kindergarten and first-level students are taught with a phonics-based program that requires direct instruction from a supervisor. From the second level on, the student is guided by the self-instructional PACEs. School supervisors give limited assistance to help students discover learning through the material.
In addition to curriculum, student programs are offered to enhance students' gifts and talents for ministry work both local and abroad. These student activities include Service Adventure, Regional Student Conventions, International Student Convention, and Educational Assistance.
Students are tested each spring with a placement test administered by ACE.
A Beka Curriculum
The A Beka Curriculum, which provides a traditional approach to education based on the truths of God's word. Students in schools using this curriculum attain superior academic achievement and the firm foundation of a Christian worldview.
Certain classes are lectured by video, while others are teacher taught. All video instructors are master level teachers. Students watch and participate with the video, as if they are in the classroom. Students interact with the video by answering problems at the chalk board and answering questions asked by the video teacher. Degreed teachers instruct classes not video taught.
Children are tested each spring with the Stanford Standardized Achievement Tests.
Our small class sizes and caring teachers enable us to provide the best education for our students using the A Beka Curriculum.
