Time to Come Home?

The European Academy for Christian Homeschooling

We’ve been supporting Christian Home Education around the world for over 30 years.

Find out how we do it, and how we can help you too.


“These words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children.

This passage from Deuteronomy 6 has spoken to thousands of families over the years, and continues to do so today. It reminds us that parents are first and foremost responsible for our children’s education.

God knows what is best for your children, and providing them with an education based on His Word gives them all the tools they need for life.


With its structured, student-orientated approach to learning, the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum is perfect for home educators.

It has been used successfully at home by Mums & Dads just like you all over the world for 50 years!

Discover more about the methodology of the curriculum, and read the testimonies of graduates who have been blessed by it for years, by going to the Curriculum page.


The International Certificate of Christian Education exists to provide Christian qualifications at a high standard for students studying on the Accelerated Christian Education programme throughout the world.



A survey conducted between 1995 and 1996 revealed that, although convinced about Christian home education, many families felt isolated and would appreciate support from experienced Christian educators who also home educate their children. For this reason, Christian Education Europe decided to establish TEACH, a distance learning support organisation which now has over 600 families and more than 1,000 children.

    Michelle Davies TEACH Administrator

    Michelle, or Minnie as most people call her, is also a graduate of the ACE curriculum. Her parents started an ACE school when she was nine, but then moved to Leeds to pastor a church there, and so Michelle has experienced being a homeschool student as well. She graduated with a Level 3 NCSC certificate, and then went to university. Michelle loves tea, and really, really wants an office pet, but at present has to settle for looking after the TEACH office plant.

      Becky Penberthy-Smith TEACH National Coordinator

      Becky & her husband John home educated their two daughters, Hannah & Abigail, through the ACE curriculum for over 15 years. As her girls have now finished their home education, she wants to help encourage other parents on their journey of home education, and so in 2015 she became the National Coordinator for TEACH. She especially has a heart to support new TEACH families as they are starting out on their ACE journey.

After working in IT for six years, and gaining a BSc in Computing, Nathan joined TEACH in 2015 with the aim of helping home educators enjoy the same fantastic experience that he had. He likes coffee and eating copious amounts of food. Nathan’s wife Becky is also a graduate of ACE, and they are looking forward to starting their daughter, Phoebe, on the ACE curriculum!
