The UST Angelicum College Home Study Program (HSP) which was recognized by DEP-ED in 1996, follows the curriculum of the government, and caters to the academic needs of the learners who cannot be physically present in school on a regular basis due to athletic activities, employment, health conditions, and place of residence.
This alternative modality in the delivery of learning allows the learners to study in a nonconventional way, in a different setting and at their own pace and time, while addressing their special needs and various learning styles with the guidance of the subject matter expert facilitators assigned to teach in every subject.
The Senior High School Department envisions itself to create a quality learning environment that embraces innovative technology and excellent instructional rigor in order to develop capable, compassionate and confident life-long learners of an ever-evolving global community.
The Home Study Program commits itself to continuously offer modern and research-based instructional methods that uphold learners’ changing needs, give equal opportunity to the marginalized and provide access to a non-graded, formal and learner-centered quality education to its enrolled local and foreign-based learners.
The Home Study Program adheres, affirms, and practices the Vision, Mission, and goals of UST Angelicum College, and of the Basic Education Department guided by the institution’s core values of JUSTICE, CHARITY, FORTITUDE and TRUTH.
