Accelerated Christian Education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Accelerated Christian Education is an American educational products company which produces the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) school curriculum. The home office is in Nashville, Tennessee, with a customer service and distribution center in Lewisville, Texas.[1] According to a study, by 1980 there were over 3,000 Christian Schools in the United States associated with ACE.[2] A European representative states that the ACE program is “being used in thousands of schools and many thousands of home schools in over 100 different countries worldwide.”[3] ACE currently[when?] serves over 7,000 schools, one government contract.

It is an ideologically Christian fundamentalist program.[citation needed] It lists its principles in a "statement of faith" which declares the belief that the Bible is literally true, in trinitarianism, redemptive theology and evangelism.[4]

Accelerated Christian Education was founded in 1970 by Dr. Donald Howard and his first wife Esther.[5] They set about developing a biblically literalist educational curriculum that was adopted by a number of private Christian schools. He traveled extensively to promote ACE schools, viewing the establishment of ACE schools around the world as a new form of missions — he called it educational missions. According to information on the Accelerated Christian Education website, the Howards opened the first school to use the ACE program in Garland, Texas.[5] They started with 45 students. By 1971, they had added six new schools.[5]
