The Accelerated Christian Education or A.C.E Curriculum, also known as School of Tomorrow System, is a solid, mastery-based course of study that is diagnostically individualized to meet a student’s specific learning needs and capabilities. The program incorporates the Scripture, Godly character building and wisdom principles to help prepare the learner for the world ahead of them. The PACES system, as others call it, has built-in tools that equip the children academically and spiritually in achieving their Godgiven potential.
Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.)
Since 1970, the A.C.E. Curriculum has been a proven and highly successful program which majors on these distinctives:
• Individualized - The uniqueness of each individual is recognized.
• Mastery-based - The student only proceeds to the next material when he has mastered at least 90% of what he is studying.
• Bible-based - The whole system is built on the Bible truth that God has a purpose for each child which is best know and accomplished through knowledge of God’s Word.
• Character Building - With Christ as the role-model, sixty character traits are defined and explained through Scripture verses, stories, and illustration.
• Accelerated - Having an individualized curriculum allows the student to advance through the scope and sequenced material at his own pace. Thus, one could finish a year’s worth of work and advance to the next level within the same school year.
The A.C.E. Curriculum has five basic laws of learning:
1. A student must be at a level that he can perform
2. Reasonable goals must be set.
3. Students must be controlled and motivated.
4. Learning must be measurable.
5. Learning must be rewarded.
This curriculum is non-denominational and provides a theistic course of study that not only teaches that the Bible is the accurate Word of God, but also teaches every subject from the Biblical point of view.
Included in these mini-classes are Music, P.E., Values Education, Technology and Home Economics, Arts and Crafts, and Speech. Grades in these subjects depend on written and/or practical tests, projects, class participation, and attendance. Classes are conducted regularly for different age groups.
