WE OFFER THE FOLLOWING SCHOOL PROGRAMS
JUNIOR CASA TO SENIOR CASA 2
This is the stage where we build the foundation of the child's academic, emotional, and social skills. In preschool, we introduce them to letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. The pupils develop the basic fundamentals of skills such as reading, arithmetic, listening, and art. We mix traditional classroom learning with story telling time, fun educational games, and art activities to keep pupils engaged and interested. For us, constructive play is an not just a way to learn but an essential form of learning.
Our curriculum puts a lot of emphasis in teaching the child how read and comprehend because these are important skills essential for all academic learning. Our preschool students become competent readers once they reach grade one.
Just as important, we also provide pupils various fun and interesting activities such as song and dance activities, playing social games, and joining extra curricular events with the grade school and junior high school students. These activities teaches them how to get along not only with each other but also with their older brothers and sisters from the higher levels.
Through lessons, activities, games, and interaction with teacher, our preschool children are taught five fundamental values which is honesty, determination, fairness, consideration, and love.
English is the main teaching language we use for Preschool.
PRIMARY Grade School (Grades 1-3)
The child is introduced to a more formalised learning environment. She or he is gently and gradually exposed to more conventional learning methods such as homework, lectures, experiments, and school projects. The academic fundamentals that the pupil learned in preschool are now being built upon through more intermediate lessons. The pupil is given a taste of technical attainment and theoretical study. This is to prepare them for the transition to the more challenging subjects later on in their career as a student.
It is during this stage in life when pupils develop a sense of character and a more acute awareness of what is right or wrong. The moral values instilled in preschool is expanded through values education inspired by the teachings of St. Francis of Assisi and Christ. Values education is integrated through all parts of the pupil's school life from their academic lessons, extra curricular activities, to their daily interaction with their teachers.
INTERMEDIATE GRADE SCHOOL (GRADES 4-6)
It is in grades 4 to 6 students are introduced to the more advanced lessons, concepts, and subjects to prepare them for the demands of high school life and beyond. The intermediate grade schoolers receive more challenging work and activities to hone their intelligence in academics and help them build a stronger character that is hardworking, tenacious, and diligent - important characteristics of successful people.
From grade 4 and above, students are given more chances to exercise more responsibility and develop their talents further by being permitted to join student circles and organizations like the Student Council, varsity teams, choir, and the many other student clubs. This also the time when they begin to become aware that they are a part of a larger society so important values of civil society such as respect for others, the importance of honest work, and taking responsibility for one’s actions are inculcated through through lessons and activities.
Junior High School
