Self –Instructional, Learner-Centered

The ACE pedagogy is anchored in the belief that Education is Life. From the age of 7 years or Grade 2, learners are trained to own their learning process and take responsibility for their academic progress. Every student, in collaboration with their parents and supervisors, sets annual academic goals which are then broken down reasonable, daily goals. In the process of daily goal setting, self-correction, and time management, learners acquire self-management life skills and a strong work ethic that enable them to succeed as adults.

FAQ

What is the difference between ACE and other systems?
  • In terms of exposure to educational content, students from ACE measure up more or less the same. ACE stands out in several areas: –
  • Character Formation: Almasi School places a strong emphasis on character building with the Biblical principles as the reference point. Students are trained, affirmed and rewarded for the displaying good character and wise choices. At the same time, immediate, loving and firm feedback is given in order to correct unbecoming behavior.
  • Academic Excellence: – because time is not a constraint, learners are afforded adequate time and support to achieve their full academic potential. Every student is an achiever within ACE whatever their performance level.
  • Individual Educational Plan: – there is an early detection system for learners with learning difficulties. The system allows the school and home to work collaboratively to come up with solutions that will build, support and recognize an individual learner’s strengths.
  • Outstanding Preparation for College/University: – At the time of graduation from high school, ACE graduates are more prepared for college level studies than their counterparts from other systems. As part of their course work, ACE students are required to do a minimum three graduate level writing and research projects and maximum of eight, depending on the level at which they are graduating. Moreover, some of the content in the Sciences is what is covered at college level introductory or core courses. Finally, ACE graduates have valuable character straits such as focus, self and fore planning, self-discipline, among others, inculcated in them to enable them navigate college life successfully.
  • Collaboration between Home and School: – Research has it that intentional parental involvement is a key factor in a child’s success not only in academics, but also in general emotional and psychosocial development of the child. ACE philosophy holds it that the educational process is a collaborative effort between home and school. Parents have the primary responsibility in investing in their children’s education and preparation for life: School comes alongside as a strongly ally to support parent’s goals for their children.
How will my child transition to ACE from another system?
    • ACE curriculum covers Kindergarten (3Years) to High School (17+ years).

    Children aged 3, 4, 5&6 years are placed by age into their respective levels – Kindergarten, Pre-School and Grade One. From age 7 onwards, Almasi School will administer a Diagnostic Test to measure the student’s academic performance level as well as determine if there are any learning gaps. Learning gaps are concepts that a child was taught but did not learn or master and/or were not taught at all. Results of the DT are used to prescribe the child’s academic level in ACE and will then be discussed with parents and explained to the learner.

What are the core subjects in ACE?
  • Core subjects in ACE are Math, English, Literature and Creative Writing, Sciences, Social Studies and Word Building (also known as Spelling and Etymology). At High School level, students add to their learning experience from a rich selection of practical Electives in various disciplines.
What Co-Curricular activities does Almasi offer?
