Non-Academic Programs

CO-CURRICULAR PROGRAM

HOMEROOM PROGRAM

The Academic Program is enriched and strengthened by a rich and varied co-curricular program. In the High School Unit, student organizations/clubs are the extensions of the different subject areas. Club offerings, goals, and the program of activities supplement and complement the academic areas to which they belong.

 

The Homeroom Program seeks to provide students with opportunities to deepen their values and develop intrapersonal and interpersonal skills. The Program is designed to meet articulated and observed needs of the students in each year level in consonance with the school’s vision-mission and in support of the academic programs. Topics taken up include Self-Awareness, Family and Peer Relationships, Gender Equality, Career and Course Orientation, among others. The program is facilitated by the Class Adviser and/or Year-Level Guidance Counselor

The Homeroom period is also used for discussion of school rules and policies, class concerns and resolutions, announcements about activities and schedules, and other pertinent matters.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS

The High School Unit is committed to providing its students with excellent academic and co-curricular programs which will develop their spiritual, academic, technical, and interpersonal skills and values.

RELIGION EXTENSION PROGRAM

THE OUTREACH PROGRAM

The Religion Extension Program (REP) is offered to students to go through a process of integration and involvement that will allow them to reflect on and understand the plight of the poor and to face the challenge of responding to the disturbing realities that beset them. It provides a unique opportunity to work with and experience the joys and fears, hopes and pains of those who are suffering and struggling for human liberation. The program emphasizes the value of Christian service through community involvement in solidarity with the powerless and defenseless.

 

The High School Outreach Program shares with those involved in community work the vision and realization of a society that is just, peaceful and humane. The goal of the Outreach Program is to empower and motivate its adopted communities to act effectively towards self-reliance and to raise the consciousness of the High School community with regard to its role as a social catalyst. Ultimately, the Outreach Program hopes that the communities it serves, both inside and outside school, will take responsibility in shaping their own lives, the community they live in, and the environment that surrounds them.

SPECIAL FILIPINO

HONOR’S PROGRAM

                Special Filipino classes are offered to non-Filipino speakers as a requirement for completion by the Department of Education.  These courses are designed according to the capability and language skills that must be acquired and expected from the students.  Students who have gained proficiency in the Filipino language after taking two (2) Special Filipino courses are expected to enroll in the regular Filipino classes.  However, assistance is still given to a student who upon parent’s request is extended by the Filipino Area teachers.

The Honor’s Program commits to provide an intellectual, creative, and interactive learning environment catering to the holistic formation of high achieving students. The use of the interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning is expected to engage the students in lifelong learning and concretize the values of Benedictine education.

 

SUMMER EXTENSION AND ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

The Summer Extension and Enrichment Programs aim to assist the students on the academic performance.  At the end of the course, the students are expected to have gained better understanding of concepts and developed their skills being highlighted by the course, such that they would become better prepared and confident to face new challenges in the next year level.
 
The Summer Extension Program is being offered to students who have received a failing mark in a subject in a given school year for which it becomes a lacking unit that can only be completed by re-taking the subject.  The lacking unit therefore does not allow any student to be promoted to the next year level.

The Summer Enrichment Program is being offered to incoming grade 7 students who either have unsatisfactory performance in their academic subjects or still need to further hone their skills in the said subject as per recommended by their teachers in the grade school and deliberated upon by the admission committee.  As such, students who are recommended to enroll in this program is placed on academic probation upon entry in the high school unit and therefore are subjected to the terms and conditions stipulated in the contract for students on academic probation.
 
Students in both programs should adhere to the guidelines set by the school.
