The students are given a more formalized learning environment to prepare them for high school education and beyond. Academic fundamentals that were learned in preschool are now being built upon through more intermediate lessons. In this point in time, the three stage process of learning is introduced:
- First stage: Introducing more advanced concepts through lectures, books and lessons.
- Second Stage: Further understanding is encouraged through homework, experimentation, discussion and through passing written and practical exams such as school projects.
- Third Stage: The integration of moral values in the lessons and applications of the skills in life.
High School Program
This is a stage in the student’s life were he or she is gradually introduced into the adult world. Besides the usual academic lessons, the school prepares them to become productive and responsible members of society. Therefore, the following traits are cultivated:
- Confidence in one’s abilities through mastery of academic subjects and practical life skills..
- Further development of Christian and Humanitarian values, work ethic and self-discipline.
- Advanced training of thinking skills through class discourse, school work and extracurricular activities that encourage self-independence and critical reasoning abilities.
Tutorial and Remedial Services
The school also provides personalized tutorial services for students. The tutors assigned to your child are qualified teachers trained by SFAMSC to instruct and guide the child. Tutors of St. Francis Cainta teach the child by assessing individual strengths and weaknesses and tailoring lessons to the child’s abilities. The goal of our tutors is to make complex lessons easy to understand for their students.
The relationship of the tutor does not end with their relationship with their pupil alone. Tutors also build trust and cooperation with the child’s family through regular updates and discussion with the parents or guardians regarding the progress of their children.
Extra Curricular Activities
SFAMSC believes in "Cura Personalis" which is Latin for, the care and development of the whole being. A child can only be a well rounded individual if creative, moral, social and emotional skills are cultivated side by side with their academic skills. Students are encouraged to participate in various cultural, social and sports activities facilitated by the school. The school also have several very active and dynamic student clubs to bring out your child’s innate talents and social skills. These activities are closely integrated with the school’s curriculum to cultivate the development of various life skills that the child will need when dealing with the real world.
