In line with the Department of Education’s restructuring of the curriculum to continuously improve the quality of learning, our school is at present using the Basic Education curriculum to fully implement the goals and objectives of DepEd. Aside from the subjects specified by DepEd such as: English, Math, Science, Filipino and Makabayan, the school maintained its Elective subjects in the High School levels to give emphasis the areas of Math and English Language Arts. Research is also integrated in almost all subjects with Thesis Writing in the 4th year level as the culminating activity to fully apply the contents learned in all the subjects.
Computer Literacy and Information Technology classes are offered to all students from Grade I to High School. They act as extension to their academic classes and also help them in their research works.
Each class is under the guidance of an adviser and a guidance counselor to help the students develop their moral and character formation. The formation program aims to: (1) make students aware of their obligations as a Christian, as a Filipino and as a student. (2) help them know what is right, value what is right and do what is right. (3) develop the students into an ideal Christian. (4) form any phase of the students’ personality.
With these objectives in mind, counseling and specific modules are designed to correct and develop the students’ behavior and attitude.
