DLSL Preps for Senior HS

Admin

De La Salle Lipa is now gearing up for opening Grade 11 classes in June 2014, two years ahead of the Department of Education’s June 2016 timetable. This is the institution’s response to the challenges of the Philippine Educational reforms through the recently approved K-12 law (RA No. 10533) which aims to produce graduates who possess competencies and skills relevant to the international standards. 

DLSL’s proposal of offering the Senior High School in 2014 has been approved by the Department of Education last December 28, 2012. During the transition period leading to the mandatory implementation of senior high school in 2016, DLSL will be using the general education subjects in its college curriculum towards earning the Senior High School diploma. 

DLSL President and Chancellor, Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC, D.Min. is leading the Lasallian community on its transition towards the 2014 opening of the senior high school. The school already mapped out its capacity in absorbing senior high school students from different public and private high schools. 

The Senior High School program of De La Salle Lipa will focus on the following career tracks: Arts, Business / Entrepreneur, Computer Studies, Engineering, Hospitality and Tourism, Legal Studies, Mathematics, Science and Health, and Teacher Education. As early as Grade 11, apprenticeship can be taken to gain experience in a field related to the student’s chosen track.
