Preface

Standing at the threshold of the future, college must be regarded beyond being merely a step above high school education. It must be treated as a pivotal point—one which could significantly alter the entire direction of one’s life.

PLANNING AHEAD serves as a guide for incoming college students, offering pertinent data that should help them make informed decisions and well thought-out choices for their future.

It profiles eleven of Metro Manila’s most esteemed colleges and universities, containing such details as admission requirements, program offerings, tuition fee rates, scholarships, industrial and educational linkages, facilities and statistics. It also includes course descriptions and the prospective careers that one could follow and establish with each program.

This guidebook contains the relevant facts and figures that students need to make the best choices in terms of which school to enroll in and what program to pursue.

AHEAD believes that one’s success in life lies primarily in the decision that one makes. We hope that PLANNING AHEAD will enlighten those who are about to take the first big step towards a successful career and a meaningful life—a worthwhile college education.

How to Use this Book

Thank you for purchasing PLANNING AHEAD. Within the pages of this book are lists of the best colleges in the country today. At a glance you will know each school’s history, course offerings, requirements, tuition rates, campus infrastructure and location, and basic contact information. PLANNING AHEAD will also expand your options as it includes information of schools you probably should consider in your search.

This compilation of the top universities gives both the parent and the student a broad overview of the current academic landscape. There are many factors to consider in choosing your school and course, all of which we have condensed for you in this book. PLANNING AHEAD simplifies this process, with key information regarding the top learning institutions at your fingertips.

This book is a companion for the students and their parents in the journey to college life. Use it like a map as you survey the different roads and avenues in the educational terrain. Trim your options to a few universities, perhaps three, and take the time to visit these institutions. Go and see actual campus life, the students, teachers, and other people and elements that make up a university. What distinguishes it from the next? While all the schools profiled in this book are among the best, each one exhibits excellence in certain areas that distinguishes it from the others. Get to know these facts as you become more intimately aware of each school’s areas of strength, honor and distinction.

Certainly, tuition fee rates will also be a major factor to consider. Are there payment schemes? Scholarships? College education is an economic investment that will have a lifelong impact, so weigh your options carefully. Finally, take your time to decide. Ideally, you should already be shopping around in your junior year of high school. Some parents and students even do it sooner. There is great wisdom in planning ahead.

The purpose of this book will have been fulfilled once you begin the process of actually narrowing down your choices to a few universities. Then comes the challenge that eventually confronts every high school student—hurdling the various college entrance examinations.

Good luck and may you all find and gain acceptance to the school of your dreams!

ASSUMPTIONASSUMPTION COLLEGE

Assumption College is an innovative women’s college committed to excellent education for leadership and social transformation. It was inspired by its founder, St. Marie Eugenie Milleret de Brou. The College passionately forms persons and communities of faith and action through a transformative education that nurtures faith and spirituality, pursues academic excellence for service, and instills social responsibility, thus forging character for life and life for God.

Education in the Assumption is rooted in the ideals of its Foundress, St. Marie Eugenie, who envisioned the Christian transformation of society and recognized the crucial role of women in this process. She saw education as the pivotal means through which young women can be formed so that they manifest in their lives the spirit of Jesus Christ and extend His reign as they serve as leaven in their milieu.

The primary purpose of Assumption College is to facilitate a transformative education that brings about liberation, conversation and humanization of the person and society through quality Catholic education characterized by an education that integrates faith and academic excellence with life for service; an education that is committed to the development of the Philippine society, in particular, and the world in general; and an education that is holistic in its development of the woman as an empowered and effective leader for significant change in the society, prominently through her career, and essentially as a wife and mother.

Saint Marie Eugenie Mil-leret de Brou established the Assumption Convent as a means to make Christian transformation of society through education.

The Congregation of the Religious of the Assumption was founded in Paris on the 30th of April 1839, by Saint Marie Eugenie Milleret de Brou (1817-1898).

Through education, it aims for the transformation of persons and society through gospel values and life centered on Jesus Christ.

The Religious of the Assumption first came to the Philippines in 1892. At the request of Queen Maria Cristina of Spain, they established the Superior Normal School for Women Teachers in Intramuros in 1892, which pioneered women education in the Philippines. Among its first graduates were Rosa Sevilla de Alvero, Foundress of the Instituto de Mujeres; Librada Avelino and Carmen de Luna, who founded Centro Escolar University. At the outbreak of the Revolution of 1898 the operation of the school was abruptly stopped and the Sisters returned to Europe.

ATENEOATENEO DE MANILA UNIVERSITY

The Ateneo de Manila in the Philippines is one of the oldest Jesuit higher learning institutions in Asia. It traces its roots to 1859 when the City of Manila entrusted the administration of the Escuela Municipal de Manila (in Intramuros) to the Jesuit Fathers. The Fathers expanded the primary school curriculum of the Escuela Municipal to include a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree. In keeping with its new academic status, The school was renamed Ateneo Municipal de Manila.

The City of Manila withdrew its subsidy to the school in 1901, and the Ateneo officially became a private institution. With this, it changed its name to Ateneo de Manila (its current name). The spirit of excellence e mbodied by the Ateneo’s inspiring namesake, the Atheneum in ancient Rome, is reflected in its growth into an active, fully accredited, and much-esteemed University with a grade school, high school, and undergraduate and graduate programs in the arts, sciences, law, management, education, and government.

One of the largest and longest-established units in the Ateneo de Manila community is its Loyola Schools. The campus houses the undergraduate programs of the University. The Loyola schools aim to form productive citizens in both national and international contexts. This, while securely rooted in their native culture, proactive within the global culture, imbued with the scientific spirit and the values of professionalism, and strongly committed to a faith that does justice.

The Ateneo’s motto is Lux in Domino, meaning “Light in the Lord”.

The seal is defined by two semi-circular ribbons. The crown (top) ribbon contains the school motto, “Lux-in-Domino”, while the base (bottom) ribbon contains the school name, “Ateneo de Manila”. These ribbons define a circular field on which rests the shield of Oñaz-Loyola: a combination of the arms of the paternal and maternal sides of the family of St. Ignatius. It bears the letters IHS, the first three letters of the Holy Name of Jesus in Greek. Above the shield is a Basque sunburst, referring to the Basque roots and heritage of Ignatius.

The seal’s colors are blue, white, red, and gold. In traditional heraldry, white or silver (Argent) represents a commitment to peace and truth. Blue (Azure) represents fortitude and loyalty. Red (Gules) represents martyrdom, sacrifice, and strength. Gold (Or) represents nobility and generosity.

Ateneans value symbols of devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Maria Purissima, Queen of the Ateneo. Among them are the rosary in the pocket, the “October Medal” (the Miraculous Medal of the Immaculate Conception with a blue ribbon), and the graduation hymn, “A Song for Mary.”

DLS-CSBDE LA SALLE-COLLEGE OF SAINT BENILDE

De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) offers prospective students the opportunity to develop their interests and passions so that they may become professionally competent in established industries and emerging fields of specialization.

DLS-CSB, a learner-centered community, is one of the seventeen District schools that comprise De La Salle Philippines (DLSP). Guided by the Lasallian principles of Faith, Zeal in Service and Communion in Mission, DLS-CSB’s education philosophy is founded on the belief that each student is endowed by God with talents and gifts that should be understood, appreciated and nurtured.

DLS-CSB has six schools that offer hands-on training and focused degree programs in different fields under the guidance of dedicated mentors and professional industry practitioners.

An open book in the middle of the seal is enclosed in a circle that forms the body of a five-pointed star. The book represents an open mind to learning, a symbol of the multidimensionality of human intelligence and the centerpiece of the college’s learning philosophy.

The star is a variation of the Signum Fidei, the sign of faith and the symbol of the De La Salle Brothers; it also means hope. The five points, bisected into green and white areas, represent benevolence, civility, humanitarianism, service-oriented goals, and scientific pursuit. Connecting each star’s points are solid and white circular lines that alternate from point to point, forming a circular pattern around the star.

Other parts include the two fronds of laurel, the Gloria et Honor Laurel, which signifies inspiration for quality education. “1988” represents the date of the college’s autonomy from De La Salle University-Manila and its membership into the De La Salle University System. The college name in Myriad typeface serves as a border, while two small circles separate the college name from 1988. The series of curves was adopted to form a scallop which serves as an ornament of the college logo.

MAPUA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY-Ahead Tutorial and reviewMAPUA INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Mapúa is the only institution in the Philippines using the Quarter System of education, which divides one school year into four (4) terms. Under the system, students are only given a maximum of fifteen (15) units per term, with longer number of classroom hours per week per unit. This, in turn, would compensate for the shorter number of weeks per term. Aside from giving students a more manageable academic load, the system also enables students to finish a specific program one year ahead than the usual.

Mapúa is the only Philippine institution which applied for accreditation at the United States-based organization, Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). This certification, once granted, would make Mapúa programs equivalent to the university programs in the United States.

In the past eight years, Mapúa produced 20 Board 1st Placers in the fields of Engineering and Architecture and is the only school in the Philippines to have the most number of Level III PACUCOA accredited Engineering programs.

The success of the efforts of the Institute to establish a culture of excellence in education is firmly evidenced by the high performance of its graduates in the licensure examinations, consistently placing in the top ten, and maintaining high passing percentage rates. This accounts for the high demand for Mapúa graduates by private and government institutions, where a big number of important positions are occupied by alumni of the Institute.

To ensure quality education, the Institute employs outstanding faculty members who are highly qualified in terms of academic degrees and teaching experience. The qualifications of these teachers are enhanced through scholarship grants for higher learning as well as attendance in conventions and seminars to keep them abreast with the latest teaching approaches. Excellence in teaching is always encouraged, acknowledged and rewarded.

Mapúa Institute of Technology (MIT, Mapúa Tech or simply Mapúa) is a private, non-sectarian, Filipino tertiary institute located in Intramuros, Manila and in Makati. It was founded by Don Tomás Mapúa in 1925.

The institute is a reputable source of architects, engineers and science graduates and topnotchers in the architectural and engineering licensure exam.

As of 2006, diplomas and official documents issued by the institute includes a footnote with the message “Malayan Colleges operating under the name of Mapúa Institute of Technology” noting the implementation of the name change of the administration.

MiriamCollege-Ahead Tutorial and reviewMIRIAM COLLEGE

Miriam College graduates have distinguished themselves in various professions. Several have been cabinet secretaries, legislators, accomplished businesswomen, entrepreneurs, educators and leaders of government and non-government organizations. To date, nineteen alumnae have been selected as “The Outstanding Women in the Nation’s Service” (TOWNS) awardees.

To meet the challenges of the times, Miriam College has expanded its course offerings and set up four centers for curriculum development, research and community outreach: Environmental Studies Institute, Center for Peace Education, Women and Gender Institute, and Institutional Network for Social Action.
Miriam College has other significant accomplishments in its rich history:

  • Established the first school-based women’s institutions, namely the Women’s
    Resource and Research Center in 1987 and the Women and Gender Institute in 1998;
  • The first school to offer a degree program in Environmental Planning that was
    launched in 1978;
  • The first school to establish a Center for Peace Education in 1997;
  • Established Consortium of Women’s Colleges together with Assumption College,
    College of the Holy Spirit, St. Paul University-Quezon City and St.
    Scholastica’s College in 2001;
  • 100 percent passing rate in the Licensure Examination for Teachers and Social
    Workers; and
  • One of the first batch of eleven (11) higher education institutions (HEI) in
    NCR granted Full Autonomy Status by the CHED in 2001.

Miriam College began in 1926 when the Archbishop of Manila requested the Sisters of the Maryknoll Congregation based in New York, USA to establish a teacher-training school for young, Catholic, Filipino women. An old Augustinian Convent in Malabon, Rizal was initially converted into the Malabon Normal School. The school transferred sites several times until finally in 1952, with its name changed to Maryknoll College, it laid down its permanent roots in Diliman, Quezon City.

Maryknoll College expanded its programs from training teachers to becoming a liberal arts college that formed women leaders. After Vatican II, the Maryknoll congregation decided to focus their efforts on their missionary work worldwide. In 1977, the ownership and management of the school was turned over to lay administrators. In accordance with this agreement, the school was re-named Miriam College in 1989.

Miriam College accepted male students in collegiate courses during the 1990s.

St. Scholastica’s College, Manila is a Catholic institution of higher learning professionally managed by the Benedictine sisters with their lay partners. It aims to transform students into agents of social change through the Benedictine tradition of service to God and neighbors, academic excellence, and social responsibility. Since it opened its door in 1906, it has maintained the highest level of scholastic standards in all its curriculum programs. Today, SSC’s thrust of “Education for Justice and Social Transformation” has enabled it to remain abreast with the demands of the times.

St. Scholastica’s College believes that individuals should blossom to their full potential. Thus, it commits to develop, challenge, and enable its students to set and achieve their personal and educational goals; as well as to understand their relationship to their socio-economic, political, cultural, technological, and natural environments.

To achieve this mission, St. Scholastica’s College provides students access to excellent programs that are steeped in the liberal arts tradition and develop the skills of inquiry, critical and creative thinking, interdisciplinary learning, gender sensitivity, and compassion. These skills further prepare students for successful careers and foster in them a personal commitment to lifelong learning. The school is able to meet these ends not only via its relevant academic programs supported by state-of-the-art facilities but more importantly through its pool of qualified and competent administrators and faculty who use innovative student-centered learning and teaching Strategies.
