An Experienced Team

Accelerate Christian Home Schooling is the homeschool support ministry of Southern Cross Educational Enterprises. We provide general and academic support for homeschooling families using A.C.E. resources throughout Australia and Oceania.

Every staff member of the team has years of experience with homeschooling and the A.C.E. resources: as educators, parents and students. We know what it’s like to begin the exciting homeschool journey, and the challenges that have faced families through decades of legislation, societal acceptance or scepticism, and well-meaning family and friends. Talk to us about your family!

Mrs April Simon

Mrs April Simon

Home School Consultant

April homechooled 4 children, beginning in the late 80s, until their youngest graduated in 2011. She completed her teaching diploma in 2008. April likes to encourage any parent to homeschool and has “been there and done that”.  To her, homeschooling is an extension of the parenting role, and so much of it can be done in a simple “no nonsense” manner.

Along with Greg, April has a passion for building the homeschool services, to support as many families as possible. April believes the best academic start you can give to children is with the A.C.E. Early Learning programmes, but even if you start later, children can continue learning at their own pace, safe in their own environment at home.
