Curriculum

    • The use of quality and biblically based Learner and Teacher Support Materials (LTSMs) including Package of Accelerated Christian Education (PACE) materials and supporting products.
    • Due to the individualized approach of the A.C.E. Program, which places emphasis on the learner learning rather than the teacher teaching, the materials are easily implemented in a homeschool environment. As a result, the parents find the self-instructional materials easy to work with.
    • Academies maintain a cumulative academic record for graduation purposes for learners being home educated. They also conduct monitoring to maintain quality and consistency in progress, for the benefit of both parties.
    • Our program is designed to help learners develop critical thinking skills and to think creatively and independently.

The system of education presents a compelling solution to the serious challenges currently faced in South Africa and many developing countries.

Countries such as South Korea, Singapore and Finland feature in the top rankings of global education standards. There are many stark differences in the systems and models that each country uses. However, academic rigor, discovery learning as well as content and skill mastery are cornerstone concepts that are common and feature strongly in each. The AEE system of education embraces the A.C.E. curriculum and is based on the well-researched methodology of a personalized system of instruction (PSI) (Keller 1968). The system creates opportunity for a learner to work in an individualized self-paced manner that embraces discovery learning and mastery learning.

Mastery Learning is another well researched (Bloom, 1968) and proven approach that relates to the rigorous assessment procedures that require learners to achieve and demonstrate consistently very high mastery (80%) over relatively small units of content. Individuals are allowed the time required to achieve mastery and may not progress until it is achieved. This results in motivated learners taking ownership over their own progress.

“Almost any child can master almost any subject given enough time and a variety of instructional methods.” (Benjamin Bloom)

Unfortunately, the current model of public education in many emerging countries on the continent is designed and implemented in a way that limits time and is dependent on the teacher teaching. As a result learners “pass” an annual test/exam and move on to new, more challenging content, when in fact they have large gaps in real understanding and certainly in mastery! The learner who is not able to maintain a high standard and fast pace starts to fall behind and, sadly, real potential is not realized. The AEE system of education is a modern methodology based on years of research and is evident in countries that are leaders in education. As it deviates from the current “modus-operandi” in public education, it is often not well understood. However, the system has a proven track record world-wide and has been available in South Africa (A.C.E. curriculum) for over thirty years and globally for more than 50 years. Apart from providing quality education, the system is not reliant on expensive resources. The system of education has been implemented with great success in both well-resourced economically affluent areas, as well as in rural and under-resourced environments. Inherent to the model is an EQ component that prescribes to a set of honorable, biblical values that promote personal development and raises the youth in a positive and accountable manner.

The AEE system of education provides a compelling solution to the serious challenges currently faced in South Africa and many developing countries.

All the South African developed material aligns with the requirements of the National Curriculum Statements (NCS) and Curriculum and Policy Statements (CAPS) of South Africa. The curriculum is updated on an on-going basis to keep materials relevant.

A.C.E. is an international curriculum comparing to the likes of Cambridge and I.E.B. International.  With our partners A.E.E. and L.C.A. your child will receive an International Diploma that can be used to enter University and College.

  • A.C.E. does not have June and November exams, as you are used to in public or private schooling.
  • A.C.E. makes use of PACE TEST these are written after each PACE (Booklet) is completed to evaluate if the child has understood the required work to progress to the next PACE (Booklet).
  • All 12 or 6 PACE TEST together gives us our yearly mark to pass the subject as required by the Department of Education.
  • All PACE TEST have to be passed with an 80% pass mark to move on to the next PACE (Booklet).

Packet of Accelerated Christian Education (PACE®)

Accelerated Christian Education®has taken the conventional style textbook and divided it into bite-sized, achievable worktexts called PACEs. Each PACE is similar to a unit in a textbook. Each level consists of 12 PACEs in each subject. PACEs integrate Godly character-building lessons into the academic content, and self-instructional activities are carefully designed to develop thinking skills and create mastery learning.

C.E. stands out from other curriculum providers with its individualized, self-instructional, mastery-based approach.  With minimal assistance, PACEs allow students to absorb subject material according to their own learning ability rather than being pushed forward or held back by their age.

How it’s put together:

  • Students begin their PACE work by noting their goals, the concepts they will learn, a Bible verse, and a corresponding character trait. From the beginning of each PACE, they know what is expected and assume the responsibility for their own learning!
  • Throughout the curriculum, the introduction of new vocabulary words is controlled so that no new vocabulary word is used without the student first learning its meaning and pronunciation. Also, these words are repeated to ensure mastery.
  • Explanations and illustrations add excitement to each lesson, and innovative learning activities reinforce the text material.
  • Each PACE contains several Check-ups, which are quizzes covering a section of the PACE. If mastery in an area is not achieved, the Check-up will reveal that weak area. Students can then take the time necessary to review and learn those concepts before proceeding to the next section.

TshwaneHEA in proud partnership with A.E.E., I.E.B. and L.C.A is pleased to provide for students a recognized level of accreditation that is both nationally and internationally in its scope.

I.E.B. through AEE Online, schools are able to offer the IEB (NSC) exit qualification. This premium CAPS-compliant qualification is held in high regard by tertiary institutions in South Africa and abroad.  Traditionally, the IEB (NSC) has only been accessible through specific independent schools, often at a prohibitively high cost. Through AEE Online, the qualification is not only significantly more affordable, but it enables schools to deliver a more innovative solution. Blended learning combines the benefits of face-to-face teaching time, supervised learning schedules and the efficiencies of online learning.

    • critical users of information
    • ethical reasoners
    • problem solvers
