Heritage Christian School uses Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.)
Whether the student is a high achiever, a moderately paced learner, or a slow learner, the A.C.E. educational process begins at the exact level determined by the child’s ability. This is individualization, making it possible for each student to master the subject matter before moving on. Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built.
Each student entering the A.C.E. program is given diagnostic tests to determine skill and concept mastery. After placement at his or her performance level, each student advances from unit to unit as mastery of content is achieved.
Core academic subjects include Math, English, Word Building (spelling), Literature & Creative Writing, Science and Social Studies. Individual instruction in French is provided.
Five Laws of Learning
The educational concept of A.C.E. was built on five basic laws of learning:
- Students must be at subject levels where they can perform.
- Students must set reasonable goals.
- Students must be controlled and motivated.
- Learning must be measurable.
- Learning must be rewarded.
