ACE Homeschool Curriculum: Mastery-based and Self-Instructional
ACE homeschool curriculum utilizes the mastery-based teaching method using self-instructional workbooks.
Mastery-based simply means that a student masters one concept before moving on to the next.
Self-instructional means that students can complete lessons with minimal teacher instruction.
Lessons are taught to the student through the workbooks; students do not rely on parents to teach the lessons to them.
Parents monitor daily work, oversee grading, answer questions, etc.
The core curriculum consists of the following subjects: math, social studies, science, English, literature/creative writing, spelling and Bible reading. Each unit is called a PACE and each course includes twelve PACES that a student completes during the year.
ACE provides an individualized education for each of your children. Your child can go as fast, or slow as they need to, to complete their lessons or PACES. ACE also offers diagnostic tests – a great way to find out exactly where your student will begin in the ACE program.
Although I don't use ACE, it is a little like Alpha Omega homeschool LifePacs which my family uses in our home school. Like AOP, ACE homeschool curriculum is also self-instructional – your student will be able to complete lessons with minimal involvement from you - a great time-saving benefit for busy homeschooling families, or for working parents.

You can view a sample of their fourth grade science and second grade social studies to see if it will be a good fit for your child. I personally don't like the cartoony/comic book style of the ACE curriculum, but I think kids would love it.
