The Emerald International School (EIS), a kindergarten to Grade 12 school, was founded on 8th May, 2007. EIS is a business of Green Pastures Tabernacle Church (GPTC). The school is located on a 10-acre serene property on Gatura Road, Off Ngong Road Mutuini, Dagoretti, Nairobi Kenya. Conception of EIS was first mooted in December 2006 with need for an alternative, value-based system of education taking centre stage with the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) emerging as the best option. This lead to the opening of EIS on May 8, 2007 with 11 students and 3 teachers.
The Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) curriculum otherwise referred to as The School of Tomorrow is an international; God centered and individualized system of education. It begun in the United States of America (USA) in the 70s as an alternative to conventional and secular systems of education. It has since then spread to all the continents. In Africa, ACE has made inroads into South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Tanzania, Ghana, Nigeria, Malawi, Uganda and Kenya where it has been in operation for over 10 years producing its first grade twelve graduates in 2004.
The concept was captured in the USA by Dr. Donald Howard in 1970.The objective was to provide Biblically-based individualized educational materials with a view to developing character and reform education. Christian educators and parents were looking for an alternative to public school system which was anti-God and the teaching of the Bible in American schools.
School of Tomorrow/ACE concepts are based on 5 basic laws of learning:
ACE uses well researched programmed learning techniques and motivational methods providing individual learners with the opportunity to develop their abilities to maximum potential. The technical description of the ACE is Progress Motivated Individualized Programmed Learning (PMIPL).
ACE graduates in Kenya are certified by the UK International Certificate of Christian Education (ICCE) which is recognized by the British National Framework of Qualification (NFQ). The subjects offered include Bible, English, Math, Social Studies, Science, Etymology, Typing, Computer Literacy, Speech, Music, Foreign Languages and Physical Education.
