Accelerated Christian Education
ACE's "core curriculum is an individualized, Biblically-based, character-building curriculum package" and is based on a series of workbooks called PACEs (Packets of Accelerated Christian Education). ACE's educational approach uses phonics to teach reading.
ACE has taken the conventional textbook and divided it into 12 workbooks per grade, called PACEs. A.C.E. math is therefore workbook-based and mastery-based, expecting children to learn concepts to mastery. ACE provides learning programs designed to be completed quickly, through short, intensive and rigorous phases of learning. Also referred to as bootcamps.
