The Philippines is the third largest English-speaking country in the world. It has a rich history, combining Asian, European, and American influences.  Many Filipinos celebrate traditional festivities known as barrio fiestas (district festivals) to commemorate the feast days of patron saints.

After your host parents greet you with traditional hospitality, it shouldn’t be long before you feel at home in their open, friendly community. By going to a local high school, you’ll be totally immersed in a new language and customs, and what you learn during the day will be reinforced at night when you spend time with your host family. This is your chance to break out of your comfort zone and join in this diverse and ever-evolving culture.

Subjects that are required in all schools are English, Mathematics, Science, Filipino, and Makabayan “Patriotic” (economics, history, geography, civilizations) and Technology and Livelihood Education, Physical Education, Arts, and Health.

The language of instruction is predominantly English, except for Filipino classes. Students must come to school with complete uniforms.
