“Teach Them Diligently”
We recognize and respect the uniqueness of each child, therefore dedicated to work alongside parents to provide needed resources in aiding children to succeed to the next academic level with the guided strength of biblical principles, affordable education and know-how. We’re prepared to meet the educational needs of all families. For that reason, our school functions as a cooperative venture and utilizes A.C.E. program to allow parents the flexibility to assist in the classroom and participate in the educational program of all the children, thus making it truly a cooperative venture. Through this concept of cooperative individualization, children experience the sense of community, self-discipline, mastery-based achievement, motivation, enriched educational advantages of a Christ-like home-school atmosphere.
Accelerated Christian Education is a Bible-based Christian K–12 curriculum
The A.C.E. curriculum is skillful in its' unique, artistic and practical ability to create individualized levels of learning, as well as biblical principles into everyday academics. Students work at his/her own pace. Each child learns to follow their curiosity, allowing them to think creatively and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.
A.C. E.’s overall concepts are based on the Five Basics Laws of Learning:
- A child must be at a level where he can perform.
- He must have reasonable goals.
- His learning must be controlled, and he must be motivated.
- His learning must be measurable.
- His learning must be rewarded.
While conventional classrooms group students by age or grade, we group by ability. This is done through diagnostic testing. The curriculum is mastery-based learning, infused with character development, embedded biblical foundation, creative phonetic-based reading, computer interactive learning and much more. Diagnostic testing is not dependent upon achievement of a certain level. Many private schools require high academic levels for lock-step chronological grading. However, A.C.E.’s entry-level diagnostic testing is not designed to screen students who are underachievers; its purpose is to diagnose all students to prescribe the correct levels of curriculum. Most children can be admitted if they can be discipline.
Through individualized-based learning, Ky’Ijel Group Christian Academy students tackle academic curriculum in ways that are engaging, meaningful, adaptable and tailor-fitted to a variety of learning styles and fun.
These principles assures parents of:
- A solid, mastery, back-to-basics education for their child.
- A course of study diagnostically individualized to meet a students’ specific learning need and capabilities.
- A program incorporating Scripture, Godly character building and wisdom principles.
- A Curriculum using advanced computer technology to help ensure the finest education possible in today’s high-tech climate.
- A curriculum that places the child at his exact academic ability level through diagnostic testing.
- A curriculum that incorporated personal goal setting and character traits into the daily program.
- A curriculum that teaches critical thinking skills that produce academic excellence.
- A curriculum that utilizes multimedia and computer technology.
- A curriculum and school that encourages parental involvement!
Accelerated Christian Education is more than just a publisher of PACEs—it is a program that shapes young minds with sound, Biblical concepts, it helps schools, homeschools, and educators reach their full potential.
A.C.E. core curriculum provides students with academics, skill building, reading practice, character and wisdom training, and knowledge of God and His Word. This complete package begins with reading development and progresses through high school, giving students a solid foundation for pursuing their life goals.
Students who are more skilled may progress at a faster rate or may accelerate in the areas of their academic strengths. Slower students are encouraged to do their best but are able to work at their levels of proficiency and proceed as they are capable. Each core subject consists of 12 PACEs (Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) per level.
Typical students work daily on one PACE in each subject and may be performing at varying levels. The diagnostic test results help to identify academic weaknesses and prescribe a path to help students catch up. 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.
KGCA Enrichment Classes (cost vary per course and materials)
We not only focus on academics, but enrichment courses that will not only meet your childs' educational goals, but cultivate life skills. We desire to nurture a lifelong love of learning while developing critical thinkers, articulate and confident leaders. One of the many reasons that independent private Christian schools such as KGCA continue to exist, is the strong desire of parents wanting to expose their children to much more than the core curriculum.
KGCA is deeply invested in delivering an exciting array of enrichments classes to our students, taught by passionate parent educators, that want their children to succeed. Our enrichments are available to all of our students – from PK through twelve grade – and are consistently noted as one of the reasons why parents seek this type of education for their children year after year. Enrichments classes such as art, foreign language, music, science, technology, finance, adventure learning, health, and physical education and much more, allow children to truly explore who they are and what makes them great. Working on life enriching and sustaining skills is at the heart of our program.
CHESS Enrichment Classes (cost vary per course and materials)
Families and homeschoolers that participate in a cooperative homeschool atmosphere enjoy relationship building skills that creates lasting memories that your family will cherish forever! Being able to connect with others, share educational programs, activities, ideas and resources guarantee a comprehensive supportive community for all families. Interacting with a community of other parents who share your faith, values, beliefs, and commitment to quality education and receiving generous support from other parent educators as you dedicate your time, unleashes unlimited advantages and opportunities for the entire family.
The Co-op academy’s primary goal is for Christian families to share the love of Jesus Christ, by sharing their gifts, favorite teaching subjects, interest, passions and creativity with others. This time of cooperative learning will supplement, enlighten or compliment existing electives, and/or enhance core subjects that are already being taught and/or expressed in the home. The responsibility of educating our children is given to the parent by the commandment of God, Deut 6:5-9. We believe “strongly” that nothing should replace the parent’s involvement in the foundational training and education of their child. Our parent volunteers serve various roles in the education of their children and are vital to the success of our co-op experience. Remembering, school/co-op does NOT replace the role of the parent, it only aids and/or compliments the existence home education and training of ones child.
