We are using Decision Point for our 2nd year in 10th grade Faith Formation.  This program prepares students to receive Confirmation and our Faith intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally.  This program uses engaging videos as discussion prompts and has a straight forward text that stresses the necessity of continually deciding for Christ.  Parents and mentors are welcome to have a copy of the textbook as well.
