What is CFA?

CFA is more than just a school. It’s a home for your family.

We want your kids to be able to grow up in an environment that’s God-loving, passion-driven, and purpose-oriented. We believe that we shouldn’t let other people take control of our own children’s education. We want only the best for them. That’s why we have Catholic Filipino Academy, or CFA. CFA was founded in 2005 by Bo Sanchez, renowned best-selling author and speaker, after he saw the benefits and blessings of homeschooling his own kids.

Not Just a School

At CFA, your kid will learn to love God, study at his own pace, and get great grades too! People often ask us, “Isn’t it lonely for the child, without classmates?” We beg to disagree.

CFA is one of the few homeschooling providers in the Philippines that has regular events, fun field trips, and meet-ups that help build healthy social lives for our students. We have Elementary and High School orchestras, sports activities, music classes, Math enrichment classes, retreats, classes for preparing kids for the Sacraments, and many other activities for your kids.

Parent and Child Activities

We also have activities that help you build your relationships with your children, such as our Family Camp.

Service to Others

At CFA, we value service to others, which is why we have regular outreach activities to places like Anawim, one of the Mercy Ministries supported by Bo Sanchez. We believe that building character is key to our children’s development.

Hands-on Life Experiences

We also emphasize the importance of entrepreneurship, especially among our high school students. We believe that being business-minded is one of the skills that is needed for building our country.

We are a Family

Because of this, at CFA, our students don’t just have classmates, they have a family that they can call their own. Not only that, they learn to value service to God and to others, plus appreciate and put into practice the principles of hard work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Gosh, I’m an ordinary mother. Can I really homeschool?

You’re homeschooling right now. Who taught your child to walk, to talk, to eat with a spoon, to kiss, to hug? You did that. We believe any parent — who feels called to homeschool, is committed and convicted to doing so, and is willing to learn how to do so —can homeschool their child.

What’s the minimum age requirement for enrolling at your school?

For Grade 1, it’s usually 6 years old. DepEd requires at least 1 year of preschool, so you may enroll your child with our Preschool program when he or she is 5 years old (or younger — we now accept Nursery students or kids who are aged 3-4 years old). We follow the K-12 program of DepEd, so this includes our high school program.

My son is already in Grade 5. I’m afraid he won’t like it if I pull him out of his regular school.

For older children, they need to agree with your decision to homeschool. Explain the benefits! Tell them that they can pursue their passions, have adventures, pursue businesses, etc. Discuss these with them and try to make a decision together.

What if I’m a working mom? Can I possibly homeschool?

We encourage at least one parent (the teaching one) to be home fulltime, or at least work only part-time, so that she can focus on homeschooling her child. But yes, you still can homeschool even if you’re working. You can find out more about this by attending one of our orientations for parents.

Am I expected to teach algebra to my child?

You can do research and you’ll be amazed at the available books and resources on the Internet about simplified ways to teach difficult subjects — and more amazed that you’ll be able to do it! Or you can consult the parent coach who will be assigned to you about this.

My child has autism. Will homeschooling work for him?

Homeschooling can be the best option for children with special needs, BUT this actually depends on your child’s particular needs and the recommendations of the specialists that you need to consult. CFA has connections with a Special-Education consultant. We accept children with special needs, depending on the recommendation of the SpEd consultant and the child’s doctor or therapists.

Can I start at any month? Or does it have to be June?

CFA follows the June to March school year.

Field Trips More Often

We went to the Museong Pambata three times and stayed there the whole day. My son repeatedly explored every section on his own. This developed my son’s interest in science and history. So, together, we visited various museums of science, natural history, and zoos.

Gentle Firmness

In my nine years of homeschooling, I have learned that using fear and punishment crushes a child's spirit. This deeply hurts a child and diminishes his self-worth. My children have responded better when they are gently but firmly told of their mistakes and what are expected of them. They obey us not out of fear, but out of love and respect. This is borne out of our love and respect for them.

How My Kids Love To Read

When I started home schooling my eldest son “J”, we always read fiction books together with his two younger brothers, John and Jaimy. Soon after, he learned how to love reading all sorts of books — even encyclopedias. After a few months, his younger brothers followed him and they now enjoy reading books together.
