The various disciplines that constitute the academic program are designed to produce at the end of four years, the graduate who is not only “intellectually and academically COMPETENT”, but also has a “well-formed CONSCIENCE, with the courage to defend what is right, and to right what is wrong, has COMPASSION for others, especially the poor and disadvantaged and will live out his COMMITMENT to his mission in life, to God and to society” because basically he is a CHRIST-CENTERED person. This program includes his mastery of basic humanistic and scientific disciplines, the growth in his ability to reason reflectively, logically and critically, and the development of the imaginative, the affective and the creative aspects of his person.
The teaching strategies put premium on the active participation of the learner where the student is allowed to question, discover, reflect on and apply his learning to the enhancement of his personal growth so that he may ultimately learn to become an independent and a life-long learner.
Christian Life Education (CLE)
CLE aims to form the whole person, imbued with the knowledge and love of God and fellowmen. The CLE program hopes to develop in the student, better knowledge and understanding of the Word of God, thus promoting a faith that gives better meaning to the Jesuit thrusts of “social justice,” “becoming a man-for-others,” and “simplicity of lifestyle.” This improved understanding and awareness of the faith should flow completely into an ability to relate with others in love, to follow what is morally right and to pray alone and with others.
The general objectives include the DMW: doctrine (believing), morals (doing) and worship (praying). CLE aims to integrate the mind, will and heart
The Communication Arts Program aims to develop the students’ communication skills in both Filipino and English: Filipino because it is a vehicle for the transmission of the Filipino culture, including basic Filipino thoughts, sentiments, concepts and values; and English because it is one of the global languages.
The English Language Arts Program aims to develop the students’ communicative and linguistic competence. It gives emphasis to the four basic communication skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing and to the different communication functions. Lessons are presented through various forms of texts that also focus on higher order thinking skills of persuading, analyzing, and synthesizing. The approach combines both social language and academic language. It relies primarily on learning strategies and student-centered activities that enable the students to use English more effectively, both in conversing with others and as a tool to understand the other content areas.
