A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education)

From the Publisher's Website:

"Since 1970 Accelerated Christian Education has published individualized curriculum and provided training in its implementation for grades K-12. Students are tested diagnostically upon entering schools or home schools using the program. Students are then placed in the curriculum in each subject at their own performance levels determined by the results of the diagnostic tests.The unique format of the curriculum allows students to advance from unit to unit as they demonstrate mastery. Students move independently through the curriculum under the supervision of instructors who provide tutoring at the optimum moment of learning.Accelerated Christian Education is more than quality academics. The curriculum is built on a theistic philosophic foundation. Students learn to see life from God's point of view. Their personal relationship with God and their personal responsibilities to family, church, and community are of primary concern.Each year, Accelerated Christian Education hosts exciting national and international conferences, seminars, and conventions for educators, parents, and students. These events provide opportunities for practical application, leadership, and training."

For the student who enjoys learning on the computer, we offer Switched-On-Schoolhouse, our computer-based curriculum.  For the student who enjoys a more traditional approach, we offer a worktext curriculum, LIFEPAC. The Horizons curriculum is most effective for students who master concepts more quickly and enjoy learning at a faster pace. If your students learn best in a group where they can build upon each other's accomplishments, the Weaver curriculum is the program for you. We also have Power-Glide, a comprehensive, independent-study, foreign language series for the student desiring to learn a foreign language. And, for the student who needs to develop or enhance reading, spelling, and comprehension skills we offer ARC. "

Easy Grammar

"Wanda Phillips used the prepositional approach and combined it with various strategies for effective teaching.  She also added review both on a daily basis (Daily Grams) and cumulatively at the end of each unit (included in Easy Grammar texts). “My students began to like English because it made sense, and their scores improved remarkably,”  Wanda shares.  The Easy Grammar teaching texts and Daily Grams review texts were written because she wanted to share this very simple but effective method with others.  “I realized that students throughout the nation could benefit by using this approach,”  Phillips notes.  “I began writing my program into texts because of the need to help children learn to speak and to write properly.  This was the basis for text development, and it continues to be my mission.”"

The students learn their math facts, rules, and formulas, and are able to use this knowledge in real life applications. The study of math is much more than committing a list of facts to memory.
