In this area of our apostolate, our Institute follows faithfully the directives of canon as it states: “Education must pay regard to the formation of the whole person, so that all may attain their eternal destiny and at the same time promote the common good of society. Children and young persons are therefore to be cared for in such a way that their physical, moral, intellectual talents may develop in a harmonious manner, so that they may attain a greater sense of responsibility and right use of freedom, and be formed to take an active part in social life” (Canon 795).
This apostolate aims to provide a systematic, authentic and Christ-centered catechesis to those who cannot attend schooling for various reasons.
We are administering two (2) schools:
By God’s grace, the school is flourishing with increasing population, improvements in facilities and higher leveling of education; and it has merited the recognition of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (DECS) as well as of the Department of Education (DepEd). To this date, the school offers basic education for Pre-Elem, Elementary and High School level with quality education.
The newly introduced K-12 higher education program , although in its preparation stage, is also being implemented.
SNCS is situated in Cabaritan West, Ballesteros, Cagayan Valley, Philippines and the ‘pilot class’ was started in 2007 using the temporary space provided by the parish. A very minimal amount serves as their tuition fees since majority of the parents of these pupils are either of low income earners or no job at all.
To this date, construction of the school is ongoing in the donated lot and the newly-built 3 rooms are already being used by the nursery and pre-elementary pupils. Any donations you might wish to give would be greatly appreciated.
