An A.C.E. School
The A.C.E. curriculum is a Bible-based curriculum Kindergarten to Grade 12. The curriculum is a uniquely individualized learning program for students. Students will complete an online diagnostic test. This test will place students in the curriculum at their performance levels.
Academic achievement is one of the greatest strengths of Accelerated Christian Education. Graduates from the A.C.E. program are attending more than 1,400 colleges and universities globally with outstanding performance.
The A.C.E. program is designed around the format that builds skill upon skill. The scope and sequence ignores the concept of grade level and moves with continuous progress beginning with the first skill to be mastered. Depending on the students ability and motivation levels, students may move ahead rapidly or take as long as necessary, but each student masters the material.
The Learning Center
Below, you will see a sample ACE Christian School learning center set-up, of which we will adapt a similar layout.
Our goal for the first academic year would be to have 15 students enrolled in the school. We will have two staff members this year at the school.
Each area would be supplied with computer stations and software required for the academic studies.

Who Can Apply?
For the first year or two of our school, applications are only open to families that regularly attend Capital Community Church. Fee structure is set in place with those requirements in mind.
Most ACE schools have a uniform. We will have a school polo or hoodie that the students will wear during classroom time and outings. For class time, girls can wear black skirts and boys can wear black pants along with their school shirt. These items will be available through a local company and will be available to order early summer (provided to you at cost).
We may have fundraisers periodically which we encourage families to get involved with! This will not go towards school expenses, but be put into a activity/social fund that the students can use towards equipment, activities or outings.
In your final Graduation Year, there is an optional $350.00 fee that provides you with a ACE transcript, along with a nationally recognized ACE Diploma. These are vital documents to have if you are planning to advance to university post-secondary education. We will provide a diploma certificate from our Capital Christian School for no additional Graduation Fee.
After School Program
We are working on partnering with Go-Go After School to provide transportation to the nearest Go-Go location flexible in space. Please see https://gogogym.com/afterschool for more information.
