Dynamic Works Christian Academy uses the A.C.E. curriculum
Accelerated Christian Education’s concepts are based on the following Five Basic 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 motivated
His learning must be rewarded
Based on these principles, the A.C.E. curriculum assures parents of:
A solid, mastery, back-to-basics education for your child.
A course of study diagnostically individualize to meet a student’s specific learning needs 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. What makes Accelerated Christian Education different?
A student entering the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum for the first time is given diagnostic test to determine his precise educational performance level. These tests also identify learning gaps. The student is then prescribed academic material to strengthen his specific weaknesses. He succeeds because he receives curriculum that meets his needs and then challenges him to achieve to a higher academic performance level. Learning is constant, and time is the variable. Every child is able to learn at his own rate, and he is able to master the material before moving ahead.
In the Learning Center, each student moves ahead only when he has demonstrated mastery. Because each child builds upon concepts he fully understands and progresses when he is academically prepared for the next step his knowledge and skill retention improves. Mastery is foundational for future learning and leads to academic achievement.
Biblical values and principles are unashamedly incorporated throughout Accelerated Christian incorporated throughout Accelerated Christian Educations curriculum. These time-honored values help students build a lifetime of meaningful and lasting relationships in accordance with Biblical principles.
Academic Excellence Accelerated Christian Education’s unique program provides the foundation for every child’s success. A.C.E. allows students to go on to higher education and into business or professional careers with confidence in themselves and their abilities.
More important than academic success is character training that prepares students to meet challenges and opportunities in today’s world. Accelerated Christian Education embeds sixty character traits into the curriculum and presents role models who display and uphold high standards of personal character strength.
Leading the Way
Although schools may look alike on the surface-buildings, classrooms, hallways, and teachers-schools using the curriculum of Accelerated Christian Education are distinctively different. The physical features may be similar, but the interior will have dramatic differences.
While conventional classrooms group students by age rather than ability, students in a Learning Center using A.C.E. curriculum work in individual offices and learn and study according to personalized levels of learning. Students using Accelerated Christian Education curriculum study at their own rate and level of learning. Instead of following a teacher’s lesson plan, each student sets his own goals. He learns to plan and meet his goals and also learns to become responsible for his actions. College students thank A.C.E. for this type of training, which accelerates their college success.
Students also have occasions to gather at the annual Regional Student Conventions and International Student Convention. Thousands of young people compete in over 140 events. Music, art, speech, athletics, and academic categories allow teens to discover and develop talents and abilities they might otherwise not know they possessed. This is one way A.C.E. and DWCA challenges today’s youth to become tomorrow’s leaders.
The goal is to prepare children for the world today and give them academic and spiritual tools necessary to achieve their God-given potential.
