The strongest tool for personal formation of the student in the PAREF schools is mentoring. Each student is assigned to a mentor, a school personnel, who chats with and guides the student-mentee personally in achieving academic and character excellence. The mentor also holds sessions with the mentee’s parents.
The regular communication between the mentor and the mentee, and the mentor and his/her mentee’s parents, paves the way for greater knowledge of the potentials and accomplishments, as well as understanding of the temperament and behavior of the student. In a climate of friendship, sincerity and trust, the mentoring system facilitates the formulation of goals, strategies and action plan for the child to grow in responsibility, maturity, love for God and others, and be the best person he or she can be.
