Guangzhou Grace Academy belongs to a worldwide family of schools using the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum. This means our students learn in a system proven to work internationally, in more than 130 countries and around 6000 schools.
Universities in the US, UK, Australia, and worldwide have accepted graduates of the School of Tomorrow program, including Oxford and Harvard.
Students are individually diagnosed to pinpoint their strengths and weaknesses; their course of study is tailored to meet their individual needs.
Students learn the important life skills of setting and meeting their own study goals each day.
Guangzhou Grace Academy began in the fall of 1994 when Brian & Maria Hutt decided to establish a school that would provide the best education possible for their own children as well as for other children. They found the Accelerated Christian Education learning system ideally suited for their purposes. With over 40 years of experience in Christian education, the worldwide Accelerated Christian Education has a proven track record in providing excellent educational materials and curriculum. The ACE School of Tomorrow program draws on the research of Dr Benjamin Bloom (Mastery Learning) and Fred Keller (Personalized System of Instruction) combined with the work of Dr Donald Howard to establish a comprehensive, character-based, individualized, mastery learning system.
The Accelerated Christian Education educational concept is built on the following principles:
l Students must be placed at an academic level where they can perform.
l The student is responsible for setting reasonable daily goals.
l Students' learning must be controlled and motivated.
l Learning must be measurable & rewarded.
Working from these principles, this curriculum assures parents of:
l A solid education for their children.
l A course of study individualized to meet a student's specific needs and learning capabilities.
l A program incorporating character-building and wisdom principles.
l A curriculum which incorporates the computer to enhance learning.
l A stimulating afternoon schedule which includes Art, Music, Drama, Creative Writing, Discovery Class and P.E..
"Education is life! It is the communication of life from the living to the living, moving from one generation to the next." So states Dr. Donald Howard, well-known American educator and founder ofAccelerated Christian Education .
What is life? Jesus said, "I have come that you might have life and have it abundantly." As Christians, we believe that by following Jesus Christ we can truly have what He called abundant life and impart the same to our children, the next generation.
The Bible is the book of life. In Deuteronomy 6:5-7 Moses was inspired by God to write: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.
Parents have a God-given responsibility to train their children to live as Jesus lived, in obedience to God. Other than our personal accountability to God and commitment to our spouse, we, as parents, have no greater responsibility on earth.
The school is an extension of the home. It exists to work with parents and aid them in the awesome responsibility of providing the best environment possible for their children. Our school staff works closely with parents to train the whole child.
Every child is a unique creation of God, created by God for a specific purpose. Thus the program is individualised in order to meet each child's particular needs, seeking to enrich him physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Individualized, self-instructional techniques are used throughout the academic program to encourage each child to take responsibility for his learning and to teach him how to learn.
For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
