Frequently Asked Questions

Is Chinese a required subject?

Chinese Language subjects are integral part of ISA curriculum. All learners have to attend regularly the prescribed Chinese classes. However, performance in the Chinese classes are recorded in a separate report card. 

Do you teach religion? How do you integrate values into your curriculum?

ISA is a non-sectarian school. Though we do not espouse a particular religion, values education is integrated in every aspect of our education system, learners are imbued with core virtues such as respect, honesty, loyalty, diligence, self-discipline, and courage.

Approximately 70% of our facilitators and learners are Catholics, 25% belong to various Christian churches, and the rest are Muslim, Hindus, and Buddhists. Respect for other’s belief is another virtue the school has been fostering which greatly contributes to the harmonious coexistence of various religious beliefs in the campus. 

Does ISA offer scholarship?

Aside from subsidy provided by FAPE to all high school Filipino learners, ISA has a grants-in-aid program for needy but deserving ISAers. The GIA fund comes from the donors and friends of ISA. To encourage ISAers to engage in sports, ISA rewards the winners in all the sports events in Private Schools Athletic Association Meets (PRISAA) in the form of tuition fee discounts.   

Will classes for SY 2021-2022 be online or face-to-face?

Children and facilitators will be allowed to go back to school only when their absolute safety from Covid-19 virus can be assured. As this is unlikely to happen in the next 8 months (from May 2021), to say the least, online mode of learning will be extended until the end of SY 2021-2022.
