Unlike the majority of Christian schools, we do not use secular humanistic textbooks. We recommended resources that are all written with a Biblical worldview.
About 30% of families who join Accelerate Christian Home Schooling report that their children have been bullied at school. Around 75% of these have daughters in years 7-10. Many parents have commented that after homeschooling for a few weeks, their child, who was mercilessly bullied, is happy and enjoys learning again.
We send out a set of diagnostic tests, which will identify the knowledge and skills of your child. Based on the results of these tests and previous school reports, and in consultation with you we will prescribe a suggested academic program for your approval.
We offer academic support to families so that they will have the confidence to homeschool. So whether your child is at early childhood, primary or secondary level, we will provide phone and internet support to help your child succeed.
Special Needs Children
Homeschooling is ideal for special needs children and children with learning difficulties. Every child has an individualised learning program which means that children will be learning at their own level without being compared themselves with others.
Universal Declaration of Human Rights
As a signatory nation to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Australian Government supports Article 26 para 3 which states: Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children. We support this statement which means that parents have a prior right to home educate using a pedagogy of their choice and resources of their choice.
What Parents Are Saying…
"I am so happy"
I am so happy seeing how my five year old is thriving with the ABCs with Ace and Christi program. He is reading words confidently, forming the letters and words well, knows the numbers up to 50, and today he picked up the concept of adding one more. It is so exciting watching him learn and achieve! I really do love A.C.E! – Clare
A wonderful help
You have both been a wonderful help to me through all these years and I am so thankful for all the help you have given to the children and myself. – Sue, NSW
Wow! That was an awesome meeting….we crossed t’s dotted i’s and the moderator was very happy with our overall learning plans and ideas. She also had some good suggestions, thank you Lord…and thank you and bless you who prayed. We don’t have to see her for 12months…exhaling now! – Julie, WA
Thank you for everything you have done in supporting and helping us in our homeschooling journey. You are priceless in this ministry. – Jeanette, NSW
Thank you for getting us started...
I just wanted to say thank you for helping us to get started with homeschooling…
It has been great to have real people to talk to…
We have seen a real change in our daughter since we removed her from her school situation and started homeschooling through you… She has been starting her work early in the morning at her own initiative and choosing to work straight through without breaks in order to complete her goals for the day so she can then have opportunity to pursue her own interests for the rest of the day.
I just feel such gratitude to be able to have this opportunity, so I thank you for providing it for us. – Annette, Victoria
What a blessing!
What a blessing I’ve received this year through having the opportunity to study Year 10 … doing the A.C.E. program. – Matthew (student), NSW
Thank you so much. You’re marvelous! – Sarah, Victoria
Since I started the home schooling my son has really flourished… I feel so proud and God’s grace is so amazing … I am so glad I started the homeschooling for both my kids. My son was also battling with reading writing and he never even knew his phone number. Since starting homeschool he knew his phone number within two weeks! – Homeschool Mum.
Homeschooling Growth Statistics for Every Australian State and Territory
Home education is growing rapidly across every state and territory in Australia with a 70% increase nationally over a period of five years. Stuart Chapman, Coordinator of Home School Services for Southern Cross Educational Enterprises has been recording the year by year growth in home education and presented his findings at the recent Global Home Education Conference in Rio de Janeiro.
“I noticed two trends in the growth of home schooling. First, as home schooling becomes more accepted and mainstream, we see home educators represent a wider range of people. The stereotypes of large families who homeschool for religious reasons or unschoolers who have no set program, no longer apply. We are finding that people from a diverse range of backgrounds are joining. Many are commenting, ‘I never thought I would be saying this, but home schooling seems like a great option for me and I am going to give it a go.’
“Secondly, we are finding that the majority of people are home schooling for only 1-2 years, instead of 5-10 years as was the case 15 years ago. Many children are withdrawn from school because of bullying or due to a concern with academic progress. After home schooling for a couple of years, many are finding their child has the confidence to return to school with improved grades and self-esteem.” read more
