ISA Junior Scholars is the official learners’ publication of Iloilo Scholastic Academy. It is the home of the writers, journalists, artists and those who aspire to be one. This learner organization does not only cater writing skills and activities but also traditional and digital arts and media production – a good venue to showcase, discover and develop these skills.
Aimed at becoming a cradle of future, great literary minds, it collects the ISAers’ exceptional pieces as well as novice attempts. The Junior Scholars is, in many ways, the voice of the ISA learner community. With works purposely created for publication and works selected from class, it provides a glimpse into the ISAers’ minds, ideas, opinions, and what they hold to be of value.
We in ISA Junior Scholars strive to be an avenue or a safe space for ISA learners to share their stories. The world, especially the ISA community, has a lot of stories and ideas to tell. And we believe that brilliant ideas and stories shouldn’t be kept away from the world.
