​Reading Development

Give your child the A.C.E. Advantage of learning to read phonetically. A.C.E.’s reading development curriculum includes individualized programs designed for a variety of learners and learning situations. Choose the program that fits your needs from the following selections: 

Preschool with Ace and Christi

This full-year program is based on a complete scope and sequence of concepts and skills needed to prepare a child to read. The program is designed for children who do not pass both parts of the ABCs with Ace and Christi Pretest. Sixty PACEs (2,000 pages) filled with Bible and animal pictures, coordination development activities, and full-color picture stories encourage a child to want to read. The student will also learn social skills, the wonders of God’s world, and the reality of God’s love.

Reading Programmes

ABCs with Ace and Christi

This full-year program is designed for those who have not been to school or who do not yet know how to read. To begin in this program, the student must pass both parts of the Pretest and show the proper maturity level as determined by the Coordination Development Tests. In the first 12-15 weeks, the ABCs with Ace and Christi program will prepare children for the individualized instruction of the PACE curriculum. The lively and entertaining phonics-based program features cartoon characters, songs, poems, displays, and character-building activities.

ABCs for English Learners

This full-year program is designed for children ages 5–9 who have passed the Pretest, which helps determine if a student is ready to learn to read. The Speaking English with Ace and Christi and ABCs with Ace and Christi programs are combined, allowing students to learn to read and speak English with enough comprehension to begin working Level 1 PACEs in the English language by week 19.
