Curriculum

We offer a revolutionary, full Christian curriculum called A.C.E. (Accelerated Christian Education), combined with a provincially approved high school program. This world renowned curriculum is an educational experience based upon individualized instruction, and mastery learning. In essence, each child is their own class. They are looked upon as an individual and their needs, abilities and potential are all taken into consideration. They are not pushed ahead with a class if they are not ready, and are not held back by the class if they are ready to progress. This individualized approach to education allows a child to learn effectively, giving them a sense of achievement.

Paces

Once a child is enrolled, they are given a diagnostic test to determine at which level they should be working in a particular subject. Once their level is found, they are given a PACE for that subject. This is done for each subject. Each subject in the A.C.E. curriculum is divided into 12 PACES per year. A PACE looks like a workbook, but it is a combination of text, learning activities, unit tests or check-ups, a self-test and a PACE test. The PACE test is taken under supervision, scored by a staff member, and provides the grade for that PACE. The passing mark for each PACE is 90% for students in grades 1-3, and 80% for subsequent grades. If a student scored below that mark, they repeat the PACE until they master it.
