By accident I came across the curriculum document for Accelerated Christian Education (ACE), which provides teaching and learning materials to parents who are homeschooling their children. New Zealand students who complete the programme right through to Year 13 gain university entrance. Home Schooling NZ gives parents advice about the ACE programme, but makes it clear that HSNZ does not work for Accelerated Christian Education or sell their teaching and assessment materials. However, I was startled to see the following listed by HSNZ as one of the “distinctives” [sic] of the ACE programme: Each student is taught from a biblical perspective developing critical thinking skills that will enable them to discern what is truly “…the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)
