The Benefits of a St. Francis Education


St. Francis of Assisi Montessori School of Cainta or SFAMSC is a pre-school, grade school, and junior high school in Cainta, Rizal that believes that education should always be accompanied with care. Our philosophy and values are based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and our patron saint, Francis of Assisi. We are a school that focuses on small class size and personalized instruction because several studies show students learn better, achieve more, and have higher morale in small learning communities.

Here are a few more ways we can bring value to your child's education:


Your child's Second Home

The teachers and staff of St. Francis of Assisi Montessori School of Cainta treats their students like their own family. We believe that the school should also be like a home - a place where the child is cared for and nurtured. A place where a child feels safe, secure, and loved.

Montessori Method

We integrate the effective Montessori method of education in our curriculum especially in the early stages of childhood education. The Montessori method produces students who are independent, creative,  and self-learners.
