Student-Paced Adventist Christian Education (SPACE)
Student-Paced Adventist Christian Education (SPACE) is a quality Christian, faith-integrated, Christ-centered education featuring an individualized, American-based curriculum. Multiple grades are instructed in one classroom at Trinity International School (TRIS) campus. It is a mastery-based and self-instructional approach to learning; SPACE efficiently meets the needs of non-Thai students in Thailand.
SPACE is an affordable program which is an alternative education for Christian children and children of expatriates in Thailand who do not wish to pay sky high traditional International School fee.
The SPACE program follows a well-recognized curriculum from Accelerated Christian Education (ACE). ACE has always recognized that each child possesses a unique learning style with God-given abilities and talents. From kindergarten to twelfth grade, each child is taught:
- To set goals and meet deadlines
- To develop critical thinking skills
- To think creatively and independently
SPACE’s individualized approach to learning is based upon the capabilities of each student. Our curriculum makes it possible for any student, a high achiever or one with learning needs, to master subject matter. Such mastery is the foundation upon which future learning is built.
ACE has taken the conventional textbook and divided it into bite-sized, achievable work texts. These work texts, called PACEs, include self-instructional lessons and activities. Each level consists of 12 PACEs for each subject.
Each student begins a PACE by noting the goals, the concepts he/she will learn, a Bible verse, and a corresponding character trait. From very beginning of each PACE, the student knows what is expected and assumes the responsibility for his/her own learning. Full color explanations and illustrations add excitement to each lesson and innovative learning activities reinforce the interesting text material.
TRIS provides excellent facilities which are designed for maximum learning. It includes a standard room fully equipped with air-conditioning, computers, audio-visual equipment, recreational equipment and fully illustrated modules with Practice Tests.
