Heidelberg Christian School uses the Accelerated Christian Education Curriculum.

A Reading Readiness Test is given to any student going to Grade 1 to determine whether the student is able to commence with his schooling in the skill of reading and literacy.

A Diagnostic Test (There is a non-refundable fee required for this test) is given to all new learners from Grade 2 onwards to determine where the student is in their performance level, not chronological level. The ACE curriculum covers the gaps in a students learning progress through the outcome of the results of the Diagnostic Test. Once the learning gaps have been addressed, the student will be able to address the future academic challenges through their PACE work far easier.

Throughout each PACE, the student will write numerous checkups. These checkups are mini tests to determine how much of the work the student understands. Each checkup’s mistakes are corrected first before proceeding to the next section of the PACE. A Self test is written which covers questions from the previous checkups, and once the Self test has been written and passed, a PACE test will then be written. This PACE test requires a minimum of 80% as a pass mark. The ACE curriculum does not have a mid or end year Grade exam. The curriculum allows the student to progress from one grade to the next, depending on their performance and mastery of the school work, without the need to study for exams.

The Learning Centre is different to a conventional school classroom. Each student is assigned their own office, and this office enables the student to work privately in order to complete their own work, at their own pace, without any disturbance from other students. The Learning Centre layout is therefore suited to accommodate multi-graded students.

Each Learning Centre has a Supervisor and a Monitor. The Supervisor and Monitor work together as a team to enable the Learning Centre procedures to operate smoothly. While the Supervisor and facilitates with the learning and academic questions of the student, the Monitor oversees the scoring procedures and general progress of school work through continual goal checking throughout the day. The Supervisor and Monitor are also responsible for the spiritual well-being of the student.

The Supervisor and Monitor, as a team, motivate the students to achieve their academic goals on a daily basis. The Learning Centre as a whole is a quiet environment as the curriculum is of the type where the material teaches the student. This does away with the audible teaching style found in conventional schooling.

The students are taught to set goals already, from Preschool to Grade 12. The setting of goals enables the student to meet deadlines, whether short term or long term. The students are rewarded for their work, and this also encourages the students to be self-motivated.

A student scores their own work, apart from the PACE test. A Score Key is used by the student to check their completed work, and once scoring has been done, the Monitor will check to see if the scoring has been done correctly. All corrections need to be completed and the work scored again. This teaches the student both discipline and honesty to achieve the goals they have set themselves for the day.

A Media Centre is available for students who are taught to use a computer to gain the basic understanding of IT. Students are introduced to Microsoft Windows and Microsoft Office Suite in the computer class. Students in the senior classes are able to do Computer Studies as a Major subject for graduation.
