Accelerated Education Enterprises has an active curriculum development department that is constantly in touch with the Department of Basic Education’s curriculum requirements. Curriculum writers are drawn from specialists around South Africa who are constantly writing new, relevant curriculum materials as well as reviewing existing materials to ensure ongoing aligning with the national curriculum applicable in South Africa.

The A.C.E. materials therefore address all the core subjects in all school phases from Grade R–12 as required in South Africa as summarised below.

GRADE R: PRESCHOOL

The Preschool with Ace and Christi (Reading Readiness) programme is designed to provide an excellent preparation for children to be ready to learn to read. Students who test below 80 percent on the Reading Readiness Test will enjoy and benefits of this programme as they learn to identify letters of the alphabet and to recognise numbers. Animal pictures, activities, and full-colour pictures introduce social skills, the wonders of God’s world, and the reality of God’s love. Visualised instructions allow students to take the initiative in the learning process and to become independent learners. Since this programme incorporates specific activities to develop sequencing and phonetic skills, promotes auditory processing, improves eye-hand coordination and visual perception, many students are easily reading lower-level books.

The Kindergarten with Ace and Christi programme includes:
  • A supervisor's four-volume daily self-instructional manual, covering 36 weeks and utilising all developmental skills - total of 2 500 pages.
  • Coordination Development Tests and Activities to evaluate physical coordination skills.
  • Large Animal Sound Display Cards to correlate stories to letter sounds.
  • Letter songs (36) on CD to reinforce phonetic sounds and encourage motor coordination.
  • Number Train Cards to emphasise number recognition.
  • Twelve PACEs in each of the five subjects (Math, English, Word Building, Science, and Social Studies) to provide practice in all reading developmental skills - total of 1 830 pages.
  • A Progress Report for objectively reporting your child's progress.

GRADE 1: ABCs

The ABCs with Ace and Christi (Learning to Read) programme is an excellent thirteen-week phonics programme for students who test 80 percent or higher on the Reading Readiness Test. It is a well-organised programme that uses animal stories to reinforce all the alphabet sounds. It also reviews alphabet sequencing and word relationships. Scripture passages support the phonics lessons, and stories illustrate Christian character traits. This programme also utilises various activities to help develop physical skills, small motor skills, and visual discrimination. ABCs with Ace and Christi provides students with all the tools needed to be able to move into the individualised instruction of the first-level A.C.E. PACE curriculum. While completing the programme, students are also introduced to numbers and simple Math skills

The 12-15 week programme includes:
  • A two-volume instructional manual with detailed easy-to-follow plans for each day - total of 900 pages.
  • Large Alphabet Sound Cards for display and review.
  • Tactile-Kinetic Cards to impact the shapes of letters in your child's mind.
  • An Audio Song CD for reinforcement of 36 sounds and songs.
  • Small Alphabet Sound Cards for individual review by students.
  • Twelve PACEs each of Bible Reading, Word Building, and Animal Science, and three Math PACEs, all of which prepare the student for the self-instructional PACE proramme.
  • A Progress Report for objectively reporting your child's progress.
  • A Reading Readiness Pre-Test and a Post Test to evaluate reading ability.
  • A special diploma for the completion of the ABCs with Ace and Christi programme.
After completing the Post Test with a perfect score, the student immediately begins English, Social Studies, Science and Math PACEs. Completing through PACE 1012 in each of these subjects concludes the average student’s grade 1 experience.
