A.C.E. Learning Outcomes
A.C.E. consists of three components, namely: PACEs, the A.C.E. Procedures and Student Convention. These three work together to produce the learning outcomes.
The most basic outcome of any curriculum is the learning of academic knowledge and understanding of facts and subject matters. Students need to know basic knowledge about the world and how it functions.
Critical thinking is achieved when students are trained to think in the higher order thinking skills (See Indonesian A.C.E. Newsletter Vol.1 No.4 ‘Critical Thinking Through Higher Order Thinking Skills’ based on Bloom’s Taxonomy). Critical thinking is not developed naturally. It is crucial that the student is able to think in order to be effective.
We want our children to have godly characters, to grow to act right before God and men. Consequently, we need to train our students to act and behave accordingly. Their character must be trained, shaped and directed.
Wisdom & Biblical Values
The A.C.E. program aims to inculcate godly wisdom and Biblical values into the students. Through the program, students will know Biblical principles, Biblical knowledge and Biblical character. One obtains wisdom when one makes decisions and acts rightly before God. It is then that he brings hope and blessings upon his life.
A.C.E. seeks to educate the whole child. Consequently, students need to graduate having identified their talents so that they can serve God through contributing their skills to their community. Therefore, it is important that life skills are developed.
