Accelerated Christian Education

Accelerated Christian Education is an American educational products company which produces the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) school curriculum. The home office is in Nashville, Tennessee, with a customer service and distribution center in Lewisville, Texas. According to a study, by 1980 there were over 3,000 Christian Schools in the United States associated with ACE. A European representative states that the ACE program is “being used in thousands of schools and many thousands of home schools in over 100 different countries worldwide.” ACE currently serves over 7,000 schools, one government contract.

It is an ideologically Christian fundamentalist program. It lists its principles in a "statement of faith" which declares the belief that the Bible is literally true, in trinitarianism, redemptive theology and evangelism.
