We are the proud parents of a Sr. Kindergartner at the Academy of Christian Education. This is our son' second year at ACE and we can't begin to explain what a wonderful experience it has been. The staff and teachers have been outstanding and always go the extra mile to encourage the kids succeed. We would highly recommend ACE to any parents. The school has been a blessing.

This the third year our kids have been at ACE (currently Sr. K and 2nd grade) and the primary reason why we have stayed with ACE all this time is due to their strong accelerated academics. It lays the groundwork for the kids to grow and learn in an environment that is challenging and encourages their students to excel and grow, in a Christian based school.

I am a proud parent of a Jr. Kindergartner at the Academy of Christian Education and words can't explain how great of an experience my daughter is having. Not only is she loved by the staff and her peers, but she has learned to read, write, and complete addition problems. She is academically above her peers in the neighborhood and its all thanks to ACE and their amazing staff! I highly recommend this school where your child will not only learn, but is loved and encouraged to succeed like family.

I am Olivia. I am almost 6 years old now. I have been with ACE for almost 2 years. I like the school very much. Every day at ACE is so much fun along with learning. I like the summer camp too, because specials is fun, we color, we plant things, and it's awesome.

ACE is a wonderful school. The teachers are nurturing and caring and the academic curriculum is very strong. Both our children have been at ACE for 2.5 years now and it's gratifying to see how much they have learned. Our kindergartner writes whole sentences in cursive and sounds out all the words she writes with the phonics she has learned. We feel fortunate to have discovered ACE.

My daughter started Junior-K, I was initially anxious if she would like the transition from Pre-K to school. The best part is that my daughter love school uniform, they not only have a good academic program, they also teach good moral science, they have accelerated reading and math with different groups based on a child's level. They have science, manners, computers, logic, foreign language as well as a variety of camps (chess / Lego s/ Odyssey of the mind to name a few) at kindergarten level. The ACE focuses on quality, childcare. Our School Owners, Directors and Professional Teachers always put communication first, especially when it comes to informing parents of our child's daily care and activities.ACE has talents of highly trained teachers and educational directors to prepare our child for social and academic success. My daughter has offered ample opportunities to develop her natural curiosity and creativity through exploration and discovery, guided by caring teachers who cultivate these moments for lasting understanding. Thanks, to ACE I truly believe this is an excellent school in Reston, VA.

Our son started Pre-K at ACE in 2012--currently in his Jr. K year. We could not be more pleased with the results of him attending this school. The combination of the curriculum and Christian foundation is excellent. The staff has always been communicative with us, and most importantly, caring to our son. We would (and do) recommend this school to everyone.

This is a great school for my kids. I have twins in Preschool and initially i was nervous how structured the school was, but I have seen tremendous growth in my girls. They love their teacher, they are learning so much and the school has always been very flexible to my needs. All the parents are very involved. My kids come home so proud of what they learned and how much they know. I am glad i found this school and would recommend it to anyone

ACE is a great school that provides a great foundation for lifelong learning! The phonics program is second to none.The children learn to write cursive and they do a very good job - take a tour and see their work displayed on the class bulletin boards. My child has been at this school for 4yrs and loves it. They have excellent teachers and support staff. The school ensure that the children develop a great work ethic, discipline and moral values.

One of the best schools in the area. Both of my kids are attending ACE. It has very strong academic curriculum, friendly and supportive teachers and staffs. When my son transferred to ACE from a day-care, he learned so much and was able to read in 3 months. We were amazed how well he learned in just 3 months and from then on we believe our kids are in the excellent academic environment. Most importanly, my kids are excited about going to school everyday!

ACE offers a challenging, disciplined, yet very caring environment second to none. My 7 yr old is in her 5th year at ACE and my 6 yr old is in her third. They absolutely love the school and all of the faculty. I drop my girls off in the morning knowing they are in very good hands. Not attending church like I should, I take comfort in knowing that they are learning about Christ every day, as Bible is their very first subject in the mornings. I only wish that the school went up to higher grades, as I dread the day they outgrow it. I love you ACE.

Academy Christian Education is known for its academic excellence, very clean, well organized, curriculum is accelerated.'Reston s best secret'! When you walk into the doors you know you are in a better place. Every month they change and well decorated with colors. School has expanded with beautiful loft for all specialty class, upgraded its facilities, with all new Apple products what I call High tech School I have 2 daughters, my oldest daughter is in 3rd grade but she does 4th grade material, School has given her I pad and thought my child how to use it and books are on I pad to read. My daughter uses software called keynote to make her presentation project and connect her I pad to apple TV to do her presentation. I am so proud and can t believe some times. My younger daughter is in senior kindergarten but she does First grade material. She surprises how well she can read and write, speaks with confidence. She uses her phonic sounds to spell out her spelling. I am so proud to say that my daughters have learned at ACE how to read, how to write in cursive, such young age. They love their teachers, great foundation & also good Christian values.

Both our kids love ACE! My son, who is now in Jr. K, started reading at age 3 1/2 and loves his teachers (especially the computer teacher!). My daughter, who is in 1st Grade, is already on a 2nd Grade level from an academic standpoint . When we were looking for a school that will deliver a strong foundation for their early years, we looked at several schools and ACE was the one that met our criteria in the areas of learning, environment, and teachers that care and work with the parents towards a mutual success in the child's learning and abilities.

They have accelerated reading and math with different groups based on a child's level. They have science, manners , computers, logic, foreign language as well as a variety of camps (chess / Legos/ Odyssey of the mind to name a few) at kindergarten level . What more could I ask for ?

Our daughter started Pre-K, we were initially anxious if she would like the transition from a Day Care to a Full fledged school. The teachers and staff made her feel so comfortable and she started loving the school from day one. They not only have a good academic program, they also teach good moral science, etiquette, manners, all of which makes our child a well rounded person. The premise is extremely well maintained and they have a beautiful play area. Our daughter loves to play and its a good physical exercise for her. We continued her for Jr.K and hopefully will have her there for a longtime.

Great School!!! Joined our son in preschool (now in Jr.K) and he loved it from the start. He started reading books by the end of preschool. Great environment for young kids as they give them great learning opportunities. Great loving and patient teachers and the staff teaches them good overall behavior. Highly recommend this school for parents in this area and we registered our second one too, to start preschool for the next academic year.
