A.C.E. School of Tomorrow® offers two distinct beginning reading programs for young students. Since age has little to do with readiness to learn to read, the most reliable tool for placement is testing. The ABCs with Ace and Christi Pretest will show which early development program is right for the student and will allow the child to acquire the right foundation in reading.
Kindergarten with Ace and Christi
The 36-week program (a full school year) features a complete scope and sequence utilizing all the developmental skills needed to prepare a child to read. Students will begin to read at different stages of the program, depending on their maturity and capability.
- Bible and animal pictures emphasize phonics and visual recognition

Kindergarten program is not self-instructional for the child. A complete set of daily
ABCs with Ace and Christi
A.C.E's phonetic reading program is a part of Level 1 and is designed to prepare a child for the individualized instruction of the PACE curriculum. Within a period of 12 to 15 weeks, phonics is reinforced through animal pictures, songs, and stories. Physical and character development skills are built through poems, displays, and variety of activities. These features help the student learn:
- Letter sounds
- Alphabet sequence
- Word relationships
Following this 12 to 15 week program, the child is administered the Post Test to determine if he is ready to begin the self-paces individualized program.
