The Four Keys to
Accelerated Christian Education

1. Individualised:

The A.C.E. Model adapts to the learning speed of your child. This is unlike the “state school model” where the class is lock-stepped regardless of the student’s academic abilities. The A.C.E. Model allows the child to progress independently through the curriculum and not as a group. The conventional state School model holds back the faster learner and forces all the students forward regardless of their “learning gaps”.

2. Diagnosis:

The child is given a diagnostic test to determine current academic ability and clearly identifies any learning gaps within all subjects. For example, the child’s English grammar may be above his/her grade level. However their punctuation skills may be below grade level. The child is then placed in curriculum at his/her academic performance grade level in each subject and the learning gaps are then addressed.

3. Goal Setting:

The Students learn through setting daily goals and are challenged by marking their achievement. This key to learning allows the child to visualise and plan daily progress. This unique discipline of A.C.E. places responsibility and accountability on the student for learning, thus establishing a lifetime appreciation for goal setting and achievement.

4. Mastery:

The Biblical value of excellence in all things we do is translated into mastering subject content. This is the foundation upon which all future learning is built. The A.C.E. Model reinforces honest achievement that results in advancement. Students must master a minimum of 80% of the material (90% in Word Building) before advancing to the next step.
