From the article:

In the USA, ACE’s Lighthouse Christian Academy is accredited by MSA-CESS. The curriculum is used in government-funded creationist voucher programs in eleven states.

MSA’s Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools


The Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools accredit early-childhood through post-secondary, non-degree granting public, private, faith-based educational institutions including special purpose schools, supplementary education centers, learning services providers, and distance education institutions.
Historically, MSA-CESS has operated in the mid-Atlantic region (Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia); with its cooperative partners, it has expanded its scope to include schools and institutions seeking accreditation throughout the United States. The Commissions also award accreditation to member institutions in more than 85 countries around the world.

The Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools are affiliated with the United States State Department’s Office of Overseas Schools and provide accreditation services to American and international style schools attended by members of the U.S. foreign service and U. S. citizens working for non-government agencies and multi-national corporations. The Commission on Secondary Schools is also recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a gatekeeper for eligibility for Title IV funding for post secondary non-degree granting institutions and distance education.

I attended a fundamentalist christian school in the 1980s/90s and even we thought the kids who did PACE were dumbasses. There was a Christian school across town from us that used the PACE system in a brick-and-mortar setting, and “smart” kids would straight up graduate when they were 15… but then only Christian colleges like Bob Jones will accept you.

I had a more “traditional” Christian education, but it still was very heavy on memorization/apologetics and not at all big on critical thinking or analyzing evidence. I completely excelled at it without ever having to study and it made me mistake thinking I was actually educated

Thankfully, I attended a liberal arts university and learned enough to break away from that nonsense

And here we have the big problem with religious based education.
