Typical students work daily on one PACE in each subject and may be performing at varying levels. Each core subject consists of 12 PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) per level. ACE considers Core subjects to be Math, English, Social Studies, Science, Literature and Creative Writing (where available), Word Building and Bible Reading. Core curriculum provides students with academics, skill building, reading practice, character and wisdom training, and knowledge of God and His Word. Most students complete at least 70 PACEs per year while maintaining academic balance by completing about the same number of PACEs in each assigned subject.
Through the FREE aceconnect Diagnostic Test online, students are tested based on what they have learned. Diagnostic Test booklets are also available. Learning gaps—subject concepts the student may have missed—are documented after the student finishes testing. When weak areas are evident from the testing, the appropriate gap PACEs (Packets of Accelerated Christian Education) are prescribed to strengthen specific weaknesses. After completing the gap PACEs, the student progresses at his performance level. If he demonstrates mastery at all levels of testing, he has the ability to function at his chronological grade level.
The four academic areas tested include:
• Math (Levels 1–9)
• English (Levels 1–8)
• Reading comprehension for science, social studies, Bible Reading, and Literature and Creative Writing (Levels 1–8)
• Spelling (Levels 2–9)
