Why Choose Accelerated Christian Education?

The A.C.E. curriculum is built upon these five basic laws of learning:

· Students must be at a level where they can perform.
· Reasonable goals must be set.
· Students must be controlled and motivated.
· Learning must be measurable.
· Learning must be rewarded.

From its beginning, over 35 years ago, the A.C.E. curriculum has held these goals:

· A solid, back-to-the-basics education program.
· A course of study individualized to meet a child's specific needs and learning capabilities.
· A program incorporating character-building and wisdom principles.
· A curriculum having available advanced computer technology to help ensure the finest education possible in today's high-tech climate.

One significant result from adhering to these goals is that students score higher than their counterparts in conventional programs using the same standardized achievement tests.

Whether the student is a high achiever or a moderately paced learner, the A.C.E. educational process proceeds at the exact level determined by the child's ability.

Individualization makes it possible for each student to master the subject before moving on.  Such mastery is the foundation upon which all future learning is built.

Individualization-produced academic excellence.  Students take responsibility for their own learning.  Biblical character training received as part of this learning experience prepares students to welcome and accept challenges and future opportunities that come their way.

Biblical values and concepts considered foundational to relationships and productive living are conveyed throughout the curriculum in such a way as to become life-shaping influences.

What is a 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.

How will the ACE curriculum help my child progress academically?

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.

What services does A.C.E. provide?

Diagnostic Testing

Proper academic diagnosis is vital to your student's success.  Students enrolled in Lighthouse Christian Academy are given diagnostic tests to determine skill and concept mastery.  Experienced advisors custom design a course of study from the test results for each individual student.  Weak areas (gaps) are strengthened first; then the student continues, progressing at his/her achievement level.

Projected Course of Study

Advisors also prepare course of study for high school students, outlining all courses needed for graduation.  Three courses of study are offered; University Preparatory, College Preparatory, and Vocational.

High School Graduation / High School Diploma

When students have satisfied all their academic requirements, a High School Diploma will be issued from Lighthouse Christian Academy.  When final tests and grades are submitted, diplomas are mailed unless the student is planning to attend the graduation ceremony.

Graduation Ceremony

Each spring, in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba a formal ceremony is held for the graduating seniors who choose to participate.  This features graduates in caps and gowns, keepsake videotaping of the ceremony, and a reception with the Lighthouse Christian Academy staff.

Enrollment Services

Students enrolling in Lighthouse Christian Academy receive the full support services of a school administration office.  Academic records are maintained based on the tests and grades submitted by the parent.  Enrollment verification is provided as needed.

Transcript Services

Lighthouse Christian Academy maintains a permanent school record for each student.  Official transcripts are sent to schools and colleges as requested.  Transcripts and health records from previous schools are also held in the student's permanent file.

Why enroll in a distance learning program?

A full-service program such as Lighthouse Christian Academy (LCA) validates the education you provide your student. LCA acts as a third party evaluating and producing each student's records, verification of enrollment, and projected course of study. The academy guides each student in earning a diploma and official transcript before enrolling into post-secondary study.

Is LCA accredited?

LCA is not accredited, but is recognized by many Universities and Colleges across Canada.

"We want to say how much we appreciate the wonderful service at Lighthouse Christian Academy. The staff have been very helpful in directing us to find the right placement for our children's academic level. As well, they have been positive and encouraging in helping us navigate a path for our high school students. We have found them flexible and extremely supportive. And most of all, we want to thank you for your prayer support!"


I have been homeschooling our two children through A.C.E. and Lighthouse Christian Academy for the past eight years and I love it! My husband and I wanted a solid curriculum offering a Biblical worldview, and this is exactly what A.C.E. offers. Having the kids enrolled with Lighthouse Christian Academy means that I have support and guidance when needed throughout the year, and my children receive their report cards every year... along with their Honour Roll! Throughout the years, I have recommended this program to several friends and individuals interested in homeschooling.


I have Registered my children with Lighthouse Christian Academy. And I am pleased about how I can send the test in and L.C.A. gives you a progress report for your children. L.C.A. also gives you a Home School Diploma that also says University prep or College prep on it. They also give you a transcript from the school after the student has graduated. Which helps a lot when it comes to an application into college and/or university. I appreciate that fact because it is less stressful on the parent and on the student.
