CAOR offers real diplomas and transcripts

Our diplomas have "...all the right and privileges as public-school diplomas" by authority of state law TCA 1-3-118 Tennessee Code Title 1.

Many private schools only offer a certificate of attendance, and not an actual diploma.

Colleges and employers are seeing "homeschool" transcripts that do not reflect the students' level of education.  Rochester University published an article titled "Transcript of Homeschooled Student might be for a Cat".

Christian Academy of Oak Ridge diplomas and transcripts are legitimate and properly reflect the success of each individual student.

  • Vocational - for students with verified learning disabilities and that are incapable of doing and comprehending regular high school work.

A.C.E. Curriculum

On the surface, most schools look alike - buildings, personnel, curriculum, and budgets.  The A.C.E. program is different.  For over 40 years, it has been the trendsetter in Biblical Educational Reform.  Its philosophy is built on basic principles of the Word of God.  Students are taught to see life from God's point of view, to take responsibility for their own learning, and to walk in Godly wisdom and character.

Our purpose in providing educational materials goes beyond simply helping students learn the academics required to enter college or get a good job.  We desire to build in students a life-long burning passion to learn and grow spiritually.  It is one thing to want children to be successful and quite another to prove the academic and character training to ensure this accomplishment.

Character Development

Godly character training is part of the A.C.E. learning experience, and it prepares students to welcome and accept challenges and future opportunities. Sixty character traits, such as kindness, loyalty, and honesty, are taught within the curriculum. Students can observe character development in the true-to-life character strips and then apply the Godly character lessons to their own lives.

Scriptural Foundation

Challenging and highly effective, the A.C.E. program is an extraordinary educational approach, Biblical in its core, that prepares students for tomorrow’s world while giving them traditional moral values that will last a lifetime.

The curriculum conveys Biblical values and concepts considered foundational to meaningful interpersonal relationships and productive learning in such a way as to become life-shaping influences.

Accelerated Christian Education—a unique program for this time in history—is building Godly citizens and Christian leaders of tomorrow. A.C.E. is your servant to meet the educational needs of today, with the traditional values of yesterday, and the technology of tomorrow.

With A.C.E.’s concept of individualized learning, students don’t just get by—they get ahead! To God be the glory!
