At the Academy of Christian Education we strive to awaken a love of learning, prepare students for the challenges of tomorrow, and develop integrity through rigorous academics and Biblical truth.
The Academy of Christian Education (ACE) was established in 1996 to provide children an academically accelerated, but enjoyable education. The three founders of the school, Mrs. Donna Strater, Mrs. Judy Lee, and Mrs. Eva Russell, wanted to provide the best educational experience available in Northern Virginia.
Through strong academics and a Biblical perspective, these women developed a curriculum that challenged students, provided structure, and created immersive learning experiences. After twenty years, the school continues to meet the needs of the students of today.
Students facing the twenty-first century are presented with unique challenges and opportunities. ACE students use multiple learning methods to prepare for the future. Math programs offered through John Hopkins Center for Talented Youth, Math and Reading programs designed to meet the specific academic needs of each student, and CoGAT preparation courses are just a few of the many ways ACE prepares students for future academic challenges.
The Academy Summer Camp is developed to assist students in continuing their learning during the summer months. The playful learning environment combines games, activities, water play, field trips, and focused academic topics to help students keep their academic skills sharp during the summer months.
The Academy of Christian Education has an open enrollment policy for students of all genders, ethnicities, religions, and cultural backgrounds. Younger students are placed in age appropriate classes, while students entering the Senior Kindergarten through Elementary are evaluated for class placement to assure academic success.
