St. Francis of Assisi Montessori School of Cainta or SFAMSC (pronounced ‘spamsi’) believes that education and the right values are the most important foundations for a successful and happy life and the key to positive change in society. Francis of Assisi was intelligent, had high status and great wealth but later realized that without the right values, and love for God and humanity, a person cannot live a truly meaningful life.
The greatest men and women who ever walked among us taught us that intelligence must be guided by a moral and ethical character. Many problems such as corruption in government, greed in corporations and wars are caused by people who have great intelligence, skills, and abilities but wrong values. This is why SFAMSC is committed to the integration of value formation into academic education - good moral values, self-understanding and compassion for others is given weight and integrated with academic subjects. Every teacher in St. Francis Cainta is a values teacher.
SFAMSC’s motto is “Cura Personalis” or the development and care of the whole being. The School’s curriculum is specially crafted so that the child’s academic knowledge, emotional intelligence and spiritual life are equally cultivated and developed. Through the right balance of academic, extra curricular and values education, SFAMSC gives students TODAY the tools to deal with the challenges in the classroom and the real world. A proper education with the right values will be their roadmap to make the right life choices. And it is the right life choices that will lead to a happy, fulfilled and successful life - for themselves and those around them.
The school is committed to produce bright students who embody the core values of Saint Francis of Assisi. These students are diligent, self-aware, compassionate and have a deep love and respect for their fellow human beings because they understand that God is in everyone of us. It is the hope of the school that these enlightened young men and women become catalysts of positive change in their families, society and the world.
St. Francis Cainta is recognized by the Philippine Department of Education for meeting its standards of curriculum, personnel, faculty and facilities. Rest assured that SFAMSC matches the national standards of educational quality.
