Providence Christian Academy uses the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) program. For over forty years, ACE has been helping children succeed. The Biblical, individualized, self-instructional, mastery-based concept of A.C.E.’s academic program enables the educational and spiritual preparation necessary for today’s world.
Although there are many choices in education today, choosing ACE will give your children an education that provides Biblical principles with Scripture, academic excellence, character training, and spiritual growth. ACE curriculum reflects high standards and is built on a Biblical foundation that will prepare your child for the world today and give him the tools necessary to succeed in the future.
Accelerated Christian Education was formed in 1970 not only to meet the academic needs of children but also to provide Godly character training. The result was a curriculum that helps parents and churches train young people academically and spiritually, a curriculum that focuses on God’s plan for each individual child.
Today ACE provides curriculum and material to hundred of thousands of children around the world. Through its Biblical, individualized, self-instructional, mastery-based program, children are growing academically and spiritually.
Accelerated Christian Education’s concepts are based on the following Five Basic Laws of Learning:
1. A child must be at a level where he can perform.
2. He must have reasonable goals.
3. His learning must be controlled, and he must be motivated.
4. His learning must be measureable.
5. His learning must be rewarded.
Based on these principles, the ACE curriculum assures parents of:
1. A solid, mastery, back-to-basics education for their child.
2. A course of study diagnostically individualized to meet a student’s specific learning needs and capabilities.
3. A program incorporating Scripture, Godly character building, and wisdom principles.
4. A curriculum using advanced computer technology to help ensure the finest education possible in today’s high-tech climate.
From its beginning, ACE has maintained high Biblical and academic standards and remained committed to setting children on a path for success. the goal is the same today: to prepare children for the world today and give them the academic and spiritual tools necessary to achieve their God-given potential.
What makes Accelerated Christian Education different?
A student entering ACE curriculum for the first time is given diagnostic tests to determine his precise educational performance level. These tests also identify learning gaps. the student is then prescribed academic material to strengthen his specific weaknesses. He succeeds because he receives curriculum that meets his needs and then challenges him to achieve a higher academic performance level.
Learning is the constant, and time is the variable. Every child is able to learn at his own rate, and he is able to master the material before moving ahead.
In the Learning Center (classroom), each student moves ahead only when he has demonstrated mastery. Because each child builds upon concepts he fully understands and progresses when is is academically prepared for the next step, his knowledge and skill retention improves. Mastery is foundational for future learning and leads to academic achievement.
More important than academic success is character training that prepares students to meet challenges and opportunities in today’s world. Accelerated Christian Education embeds sixty character traits into the curriculum and presents role models who display and uphold high standards of personal character strength.
Biblical values and principles are unashamedly incorporated throughout ACE’s curriculum. These time-honored values help students build a lifetime of meaningful and lasting relationships in accordance with Biblical principles.
Accelerated Christian Education’s unique program provides the foundation for every child’s success. ACE allows students to go on to higher education and into business or professional careers with confidence in themselves and their abilities.
