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.

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.

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.

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.

I have both my kids going to ACE since Jr. K. The teacher and staff are exceptional and go out of their way to assist the students. They have an accelerated academic curriculum and are always finding ways to innovate themselves. In additional to academics, they have arts, music, spanish, computers and a variety of clubs to keep your kid engaged. 3rd graders get their on ipad for the year! They also put strong emphasis on discipline, manners and respect. I think the most important aspect of this school is that they listen to the parent and actually incorporate the feedback into the program. I would recommend this school to anyone who is looking for quality education for their kids.

My daughter Jolie Joins ACE from 4th Sep,2012 after her arrival at U.S.A from China. During the past half a year, my daughter quickly got great improvements in English, in reading with all the teachers kindly help. She knows nothing about English before, but now she can communicate with the teachers and the classmates without any trouble, and she also have a lot of new friends now. She loves this school, loves every teacher here. We truly believe this is an excellent school in this area.

ACE is second to none. The staff are incredibly warm and committed to seeing our children thrive. The reading program is excellent. My youngest son started learning how to read in the Jr. K program when he was 4 and by the end of the school year, he was reading stories. Now at 5 in the Sr. K program, he is learning to read with expression, smoothness and for comprehension. My oldest son attended ACE and is excelling in the Advanced Academic Program in public school. I would definitely recommend ACE to parents who want a nurturing and academically advanced environment for their children.

We've been at ACE for a combined 6 years (3 for my daughter and 3 for my son). This school has fantastic staff based on solid principles. They quickly get to know the child and provide an environment that allows the children to flourish. They methodically integrate kids in the classes, that is seamless to the kids, but results in strong community bonds developed within the class and in the school. I'd highly recommend ACE for parents that want a loving, nurturing, and structured learning experience for their children.

This is a great school--well-organized curriculum, great teachers, firendly staff, etc. My child is eager to go to school every morning. This is especially a great school if you are looking for a protestant school--I found it really focuses on teaching Christian values. (There are many students who are not from protestant families, but still enroll for the academic rigor.) It is not cheap--at $15,000 per academic year (aftercare extra)--but it is well worth it. I intend to keep my child at ACE.

We pulled our child out of this school because it was not a good fit for him. It is accelerated learning and I felt that not enough time was spent on teaching kids the fundamentals. There also is a lot of homework which I think is too much for a 5 year old. Also, I felt that the kids just weren't being kids in this school.

Our daughter has been at ACE for 4 years now and has loved it all the way through! She has learned way beyond our expectations and is enthusiastic about going every day. Minor problem is that the classes get very small from 3rd grade onwards, because of the GT program in Fairfax county, the school needs to address this in some way. Academics are great though!

I have two children at the school. It has been my experience that the academic curriculm can take an average student at a very young age (4-5) and create an above average reader. I believe that this fact alone will allow my children to excel in the future. I have also found that the school is very good for boys because of its extremely structured environment.

ACE is known for its academic excellence. The curriculum is accelerated and keeps students challenged. Although most teachers are interested and caring, the quality of instruction is not always at a high standard. The school is attempting to expand, upgrade its facilities, and increase extra-curricular activities. Criteria for teacher selection and continuing education for teachers needs to be strengthened. We encountered some odd Biblical inerpretations from one teacher, but don't regret our overall experience. The school is highly recommended for Pre-K, K-5 and early elementary grades. Enrollment drops off significantly after 2nd grade.

This is an excellent school. From the moment you walk into the doors you know know you are someplace special, unlike any other school. I was introduced to this school from another parrent as 'Restons Best Little secret' and I couldn't agree more. This school will go well beyond what other school do to help you, help your child succeed. Any time you have a question, or just need extra advise their doors are always open. You never feel uncomfortable dropping by even the Principals office for a quick chat. Your child is given every opportunity to succeed. The most amazing thing is they are an advanced school where the children thrive with out pressure. You don't see the stress in the parrents or childrens eyes of: how can we keep up with this work? Subjects are so well taught in the classroom Tests are usually just a review of papers.
