A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education)

As a former student and graduate of an A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education) school, I am quite familiar with this program. The curriculum creators designed a course of study that centers around Christ and Christian values. The premise of this curriculum is that each child is an individual and learns at his own pace.

Here is their promise to parents as stated on their About page:

Based on these principles [Five Basic Laws of Learning], the A.C.E. curriculum assures parents of:

  • A solid, mastery-based, back-to-basics education for their child.
  • A course of study diagnostically individualized to meet a student's specific learning needs and capabilities.
  • A program incorporating Scripture, Godly character building, and wisdom principles.
  • A curriculum using advanced computer technology to help ensure the finest education possible in today's high-tech climate.
The A.C.E. curriculum offers courses for preschool through college prep. Full details are available through the Home School Scope and Sequence. The A.C.E. home school online tools include a Free Online Diagnostic Test and their Home School Catalog. Home School options include the distance learning program, which means that the child is enrolled as a student of Lighthouse Christian Academy (the parent essentially functions as a tutor), and the independent home school option (the parent assumes full responsibility for the child's education). Home school support includes Home School Conventions and Motel Meetings.
