What sets CFCS apart from other private schools?
Our school has consistently been one of the highest performing private schools in El Paso ever since we opened our doors. We have an unwavering commitment to educating children well right from the start. You can skip ahead to student test results if you want to see how we compare.
Community of Faith offers an undiluted version of the Abeka curriculum. We do not diminish the effectiveness of this curriculum by using other curriculum. That way, our students realize the full impact of the curriculum and do not have any gaps or missing “puzzle pieces” as we call them. Like a jigsaw puzzle, individual topics in each subject are meant to fit together a certain way. We believe that these “puzzle pieces” need regular reinforcement, refinement, and alignment so that they stay well-connected and form a solid foundation for higher learning.
We teach all of our subjects through a Christian worldview so that when students leave our campus they are strong in their faith, grounded in their convictions, and have a passion for God that will enable them to be great leaders in their community!
TENURED, CARING TEACHERS
Our teachers truly care about your child. They are Christians who believe that God has gifted them to serve children and their families vocationally through teaching. All of our teachers are certified, and many hold advanced degrees. The average tenure of our teachers is 12 years, which highlights how much they love the students, curriculum, and environment at Community of Faith. The teachers also help students with tutoring as needed.
Parents and teachers use an online tool called RenWeb to communicate about the students’ progress, plan for upcoming events such as tests and homework, and so much more. This service enables parents to be much more in tune with what’s going on in the classroom. Parents can also view lesson plans for a better understanding of what was covered in class and how the topics fit together.
Since the mind is more than intellect, we also believe in educating the whole person. We supplement the core curriculum with physical activity, liberal arts, and character training so that our students are well-rounded. In addition to all that we offer academically, we provide many enrichment programs to help students discover where God has gifted them and to grow in these gifts.
Character training — All students are encouraged to love God with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength. This is at the heart of all lasting fruit and the shaping of godly character. We regularly teach and try to cultivate the fruits of the Spirit in their lives.
Community service — We have multiple community service projects that we participate in every year to enrich the lives of the children as well as the people they are serving.
