As a Catholic school, SMASA espouses a Catholic Doctrine, traditions and practices. It is inherent to the school to educate the learners in a Catholic way of life. Learners belonging to different religious denomination are therefore encouraged and required to attend spiritual activities of the school such as First Friday Masses, Feast Day activities e.g. Marian Feasts and Ignacian Feasts, Retreats, Recollections and other related activities as stipulated in pages 416-417 of the 1998 Revised Edition of the Manual of Regulations for Private schools.
A chapel is located at the first floor of the St. Ann Building for worship and for prayer. Frequent visit to the Blessed Sacrament is encouraged to develop intimacy with God. Devotions that will enhance the Marian - Ignacian Spirit are also encouraged.
The Christian Formation Center is an embodiment of four areas particularly:
1. CAMPUS MINISTRY - It provides opportunity for learners to enhance their faith and spirituality and find greater meaning to their lives.
To enhance the spiritual growth of the learners, a 2 full day spiritual retreat is conducted to Grade 10. also, an overnight retreat is conducted to Grade 6 and a one whole day recollection is given to all Grade 9.
Meanwhile, recollections for Grades 4 & 5, parent child-encounter to Grade 7 & 8 are given on a half day basis. Annual confessions moreover are also given to Grades 3 to 10. The school observes First Friday devotions, seminars for spiritual growth, and other religious practices such as Marian and Ignacian Feast days.
2. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT PROGRAM - Integral to the faith formation of the learner is the CIP program. The program provides the fertile ground where this faith can blossom through service and sharing. The different activities form learners to be a loving neighbor to others by an active witnessing to stewardship where giving of oneself, resources and gifts becomes a lifestyle. It also molds learners to become critically aware, socially involved and responsible individuals who are committed to be active agents of change in the society where they belong.
3. CHRISTIAN LIVING AREA – The school offers Christian Living in all year levels. As the core of the curriculum, the objective of the area is to deepen the personal knowledge and intimacy with Jesus through the Scriptures, love and devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary and commitment to the mission of the Church.
4. FAMILY AND LIFE EDUCATION PROGRAM – This program aims to guide SMASA in providing opportunities in the strengthening of families, the youth, communities and individuals through education, information, prevention and empowering family members to lead productive lives and become contributing citizens to the community.
