FEATURES OF OUR A.C.E. CURRICULUM

Our K-12 CURRICULUM is written by Christian teachers and educators from a Bible-based moral climate of absolutes. Parents with High School Diplomas or G.E.D.'s can Supervise and be involved in their children's learning, without needing to "prepare daily lesson plans". All the planning has been done for you.

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING determines what ability level the student has actually reached academically in each subject. This is where he should begin working for successful progress.

SELF-INSTRUCTIONAL means the student can do most of the lessons independently with a minimum of Teaching, and without the need for detailed daily lesson plans, nor state credentialed licenses.

SELF-PACED allows students at all different levels of ability and motivation to make progress through the academic material at their own natural rate of learning.

MASTERY LEARNING is a principle that a student is ready to learn skills and concepts when he has mastered previous skills and concepts. The A.C.E. curriculum is designed for a 80% minimum score on each quiz and test to complete each unit.

LEARNER- BASED systems of learning put the emphasis upon what the student is learning rather than upon what the teacher is teaching. The teacher is responsible for supervision of progress, with a one-to-one, teacher-student learning climate.

IN A.C.E. EVERY STUDENT CAN SUCCEED because the academic material is adapted to the ability of most students, ...from the below average to those who are gifted. All student levels are challenged.
