Course Code: ICCE

The International Certificate of Christian Education (ICCE) is a Christian qualification for secondary students across four continents. The ICCE was set up to give recognition to work completed over a number of years by students using the ACE curriculum. ICCE graduates continue to gain entrance to colleges and universities around the world.

The ACE curriculum represents the standards set by traditional, knowledge-based education in past generations. It is well known that the Christian church has had a fundamental role to play in the establishing of education throughout the world. The ICCE scheme is committed to these traditional values and to the re-establishment of a Christian voice in the assessment of students’ educational achievements.

UK NARIC* has undertaken a benchmarking study of the ICCE qualifications and certificates and made the following statement on its website on 06/02/2012:

“A recent benchmarking study by UK NARIC has confirmed that the International Certificate of Christian Education (ICCE) General and Advanced Certificates can be considered to be comparable to the overall Cambridge International O and A Level standard respectively.”

On average, a child will complete approximately 70 PACEs a year (60 at lower levels). Each subject is approached from a sound Biblical standpoint, acknowledging in every area the authority of the Creator in His Creation.

What is a Pace?

ACE has taken the conventionally styled textbook and divided it into bite-sized, achievable, work texts called PACEs. Each level of ACE curriculum 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.

Students begin their PACE work by noting their goals, the concepts they will learn, a Bible verse, and a corresponding character trait. From the beginning of each PACE, they know what is expected and assume the responsibility for their own learning! Each PACE contains several Checkups, which are quizzes covering a section of the PACE. If mastery in an area is not achieved, the Checkup will reveal that weak area. Students can then take the time necessary to review and learn those concepts before proceeding to the next section of work.

Upon completion of the activities and Checkups, students prepare to take the Self Test. Here students evaluate themselves, and a supervisor/parent determines readiness for the final PACE Test. When the Self Test is successfully completed, the student hands in the PACE and takes the PACE Test the next school morning. The PACE Test objectively measures student mastery of the material.
