“Teaching children how to live, not just how to make a living”
Why You’ll Love It
W ith the goal of equipping parents and churches to educate children using an academically proven curriculum that cultivates a Biblical Worldview, Christian Education Europe provides access to the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) programme.
A.C.E. offers a complete, self-instructional curriculum that integrates Bible truths and character values throughout all subjects and grade levels. Biblical principles and concepts are interwoven into all aspects of the programme, developing critical thinking and apologetic skills, and science is taught from the Biblical perspective of creation.
The curriculum presents 90 character traits of Jesus throughout the PACE material and incorporates role modelling that promotes Biblical integrity and Christlike character.
A.C.E. offers individualised school curriculum for Years 1 – 13.
The six core subjects provide for the students’ essential learning needs. These core subjects are Maths, English, Science, Social Studies, Word Building (including Etymology) and Literature. Academic electives, stand-alone educational software, and learning-to-read programmes are added for enhanced learning opportunities.
The curriculum is presented in the form of workbooks called PACEs (Packets of Accelerated Christian Education), and each subject consists of 12 PACEs per level. Students work daily on PACEs one at a time, in each of the subjects.Each student generally completes a minimum of 72 PACEs in one academic year; however, this varies according to the student’s ability.
Children receive an Academic Prescription that allows them to progress at their own level and rate of learning. Diagnostic Testing determines the specific requirements of each child, while the ACE material allows the supervisor to give personal and precise assistance where necessary.
ACE provides each child with the opportunity to actually learn the material they are studying. Mastery learning is essential for educational success. Students do not move onto a new concept until they have demonstrated that they have adequately learned the immediate material.
Biblical principles and concepts are interwoven into all aspects of the curriculum. Each student is taught from a Biblical perspective, developing critical thinking skills which enable them to discern what truly is “…the good and acceptable and perfect will of God”. Romans 12:2
The ACE curriculum presents 90 character traits of Jesus throughout the PACE material and presents role modelling that promotes Biblical integrity and Christ-like character. This, along with the practice and procedures, goal setting and routines, requires students to develop Godly character 24/7.

"The broad range of subjects compulsory in the ICCE General and Intermediate Certificates really helped me to find my areas of interest."
"ACE gave me the opportunity to escape and embrace another side of learning – a curriculum that encouraged effort, integrity, and yearning of knowledge."
"Looking back I definitely feel privileged to have been supported in such a Godly way by my parents and teachers and to have had a safe environment to grow and learn."
"The depth of material covered, particularly the physics and math subjects, put me in good stead for my flight training."
"ACE gave me purpose, a sense of direction, and ultimately helped me to develop an 'attitude of excellence' in regards to my work ethic and character."
"The PACE’s were very helpful with learning English, especially Word Building and English, but after all, it was not only the knowledge I was getting from it, but also wisdom."
"My heart´s desire is to see people transformed and alive in Jesus Christ, and this can be done through the Arts."
"ACE prepared me for university academically, through the rigorous grammar and literature course, and personally, as the goal-setting & independent study methods."
"Learning with a curriculum based on the Word of God blessed me immensely, and continues to be a blessing to me...I know the character building of homeschooling has played a massive part in my life and work ethic."
"Christian education is a wonderful way to be schooled. Throughout my education I not only learnt regular school stuff but I also learnt strong morals and more."
