CrossRoads in the Philippines
LATC was introduced to the Philippines in 2009. It was adopted by some schools, mostly in Laguna and Quezon City, as part of the school’s values formation agenda. Eventually, it was accredited by DepEd and introduced into the mainstream educational system, where school teachers themselves are being equipped to teach the curriculum. Training and material are coordinated by Campus Crusade for Christ.
On April 5, 2017, John15.Rocks Center partnered with Campus Crusade Philippines through Terry Ibasco. The CrossRoads LATC curriculum was adopted by John15 Rocks School Club as its student training material.
