OUR PROGRAMS

 

Accelerated Christian Education is a Bible-based, Christian K–12 curriculum, consisting of reading programs, core curriculum, required electives, and additional instruction programs. Some courses are enhanced with CDs, DVDs, and computer software.

 

Core Curriculum

Core curriculum provides students with academics, skill building, reading practice, character and wisdom training, and knowledge of God and His Word. This complete package begins with reading development and progresses through high school, giving students a solid foundation for pursuing their life goals.

Students who are more skilled may progress at a faster rate or may accelerate in the areas of their academic strengths. Slower students are encouraged to do their best but are able to work at their levels of proficiency and proceed as they are capable.

Each core subject consists of 12 PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) per level. Typical students work daily on one PACE in each subject and may be performing at varying levels. The diagnostic test results help to identify academic weaknesses and prescribe a path to help students catch up. Most students complete at least 70 PACEs per year, while maintaining academic balance by completing about the same number of PACEs in each assigned subject.

Core Subjects:

  • Math (Levels K–12)

  • English (Levels K–12)

  • Literature and Creative Writing (Levels 2–8)

  • Social Studies (Levels K–12)

  • Science (Levels K–12)

  • Word Building (Levels K–9)

  • Bible Reading (Levels 1–6)

Multimedia

Readmaster Plus is an educational software suite that enhances students’ educational experiences while challenging their learning. Readmaster Plus offers four distinct computer software programs:

  • Readmaster® improves reading rate and comprehension skills for Levels 1–12.

Beginning Reading Programs for Young Children 

  • Kindergarten with Ace and Christi

This full-year program is based on a complete scope and sequence of concepts and skills needed to prepare a child to read. The program is designed for children who do not pass both parts of the ABCs with Ace and Christi Pretest. Sixty PACEs (2,000 pages) filled with Bible and animal pictures, coordination development activities, and full-color picture stories encourage a child to want to read. The student will also learn social skills, the wonders of God’s world, and the reality of God’s love.

  • ABCs with Ace and Christi

This full-year program is designed for those who have not been to school or who do not yet know how to read. To begin in this program, the student must pass both parts of the Pretest and show the proper maturity level as determined by the Coordination Development Tests. In the first 12-15 weeks, the ABCs with Ace and Christi program will prepare children for the individualized instruction of the PACE curriculum. The lively and entertaining phonics-based program features cartoon characters, songs, poems, displays, and character-building activities.
