A programme, not just a curriculum
What is a PACE?
Children receive an Academic Prescription that allows them to progress at their own level and rate of learning. Diagnostic Testing determines the specific requirements of each child, while the ACE material allows the supervisor to give personal and precise assistance where necessary.
ACE provides each child with the opportunity to actually learn the material they are studying. Mastery learning is essential for educational success. Students do not move onto a new concept until they have demonstrated that they have adequately learned the immediate material.
Biblical principles and concepts are interwoven into all aspects of the curriculum. Each student is taught from a Biblical perspective, developing critical thinking skills which enable them to discern what truly is “…the good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. Romans 12:2
The ACE curriculum presents 90 character traits of Jesus throughout the PACE material and presents role modelling that promotes Biblical integrity and Christ-like character. This, along with the practice and procedures, goal setting and routines, enables students to develop Godly character 24/7.

Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, & Calculus
From four-function math to algebra and differential calculus, the student learns how to approach mathematical problems in a well-grounded, step-by-step manner. Students are encouraged to recognise God as the Creator of order and absolutes.
Grammar and Usage
Proper use of English as a language is not innate in an individual, but a skill to be developed. The curriculum does this through its balanced scope and sequence, which includes extensive repetition of the eight parts of speech as well as step-by-step training in research and essay writing.
Word Structure & Spelling
Word-building increases the students’ vocabulary and reinforces their confidence and capability in spelling. Basic spelling rules are introduced and illustrated, while the study of the meanings of suffixes, prefixes, and root words allows students to build new words & expand their vocabulary.
History, Geography, & Economics
Social Studies looks at world history and cultures from the perspective of God as the Creator and controller of the universe. The PACEs develop deductive reasoning and include a variety of activities, with examples of individuals who have practised the precepts of God through the ages.
Biology, Physics, & Chemistry
A.C.E. takes the students’ natural curiosity about their physical environment and helps them build a solid foundation based on Biblical principles. It is non-evolutionary in approach and content. Experiments are performed, and laboratory sessions are featured on DVDs.
Literature & Creative Writing
Younger students are encouraged to enjoy reading and are led through the foundational concepts of creative writing. Through study guides, older students sample the classics and modern literature, along with poetry from various periods.
A complete curriculum from early years to higher education and the workplace
The A.C.E. programme contains a full Preschool and Learning to Read programme, which leads directly onto the core curriculum. At secondary level, students work towards the International Certificate of Christian Education.

"After not having a particular enthralling, pleasant time at secondary school at the age of 12, ACE gave me the opportunity to escape and embrace another side of learning – a curriculum that encouraged effort, integrity, and yearning of knowledge.
At first, it was a struggle. The PACEs seemed like hard work. However, I prayed, was encouraged to do my best, and was supported by my supervisor/mother, who stayed behind me funnily enough – every inch of the way through Mathematics, every punctuation rule and mighty assignment in English Grammar and English Literature, every experiment in Science, etc. Now, I’ve obtained grades that I’m very proud of, as well as my family, (A*’s in Mathematics, Algebra, English Grammar, English Literature, Word Building/Etymology, Biology, Geography and A’s in British and European History and Earth Science) at the completion of my General Certification."

"I completed the General level in January 2013 after eleven years of studying at home with the ACE program. Looking back I am grateful for the schooling I received through the curriculum. As well as providing a child with a quality education, the system promotes Bible memorisation and the development of a good Christian character. Although I would describe myself as a slow worker academically, I found studying for and completing each test for the certificate satisfying."
