WHAT MAKES COUPLES FOR CHRIST
SCHOOL OF THE MORNING STAR
DIFFERENT FROM OTHER SCHOOLS:
Basically, three things would distinguish the CFC-
SMS from other good, reputable Christian schools.
1. CFC-SMS is a part of a larger community, Couples for
Christ (CFC), though it is independent. CFC is engaged
in holistic family life renewal, strengthening Christian
families and homes and providing Christian peer
environment for young people.
-The three greatest influences in the life of a young
person are the home (family), the school, and the
peer group. CFC works at renewal in all three
environments, and works such that all three
environments are overtly and effectively Christian. It
is an integrated and holistic approach, effectively
creating only one continuing environment, which is
divided into three areas.
– Therefore, the child enrolled at the CFC-SMS will
become part of an integrated and controlled
environment where Christian formation is continually
happening, whether in the school, at home, or with
one’s peer group.
-There will be no conflicting teachings, values, or
witness among teachers, parents, and peers. Thus,
there will be no confusion during childhood
2. CFC-SMS assures the orthodoxy of its Christian
teaching, formation, and approaches. Such orthodoxy is
no longer the case with many Christian schools, where
the environment is no longer overtly Christian, and
where peer groups are very worldly.
-CFC-SMS’s values, curriculum, and formation are
mainstream and orthodox.
-CFC-SMS’s teachers are renewed committed
Christians who are active members of CFC and its
3. CFC-SMS utilizes the Integrated Bible-Based
Curriculum/Integrated Value-Based Curriculum
-Children learn their regular lessons while becoming
more and more firmly grounded on the word of God.
– Academic and spiritual formation go hand in hand,
without any dichotomy.
