Our Elementary Education uses national and international standards to create learning goals in each core subject area. Then we engage our children in the inquiry process, using their interests and voices to create unique paths to discovery. The results? Deep and relevant learning that our children can build on throughout their lives.
Junior High School
Our JHS program comprises grades 7 to 10 (ages 12 to 16). Students who complete elementary education at grade 6 automatically progress to JHS. The JHS core curriculum includes standard subjects like Filipino, English, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Philippine History and Culture, Physical Education and Arts. Our learning facilitators use English as the main language of instruction.
Senior High School
SHS consists of two years of specialized upper secondary education (grades 11 and 12, ages 16 to 18). Students are streamed into academic specialization tracks with distinct curricula. Before enrolling, students choose a specialization track. Each track study a core curriculum of 15 required subjects from seven learning areas, which include: languages, literature, communication, mathematics, philosophy, natural sciences, and social sciences. The grading scale and methods of assessment used in SHS are the same as in JHS, but with a stronger emphasis on performance tasks. Upon completion of grade 12, students are awarded a high school diploma.
Welcome to ALIAC’s Basic Education Program
ALIAC formally adopts the Basic Education System of the Philippines the K–6–4–2 —one year of kindergarten, six years of elementary education, four years of junior high school education and two years of senior high school education.
Our Basic Education Department is composed of a just and caring community that welcomes all students and their families.

We have a common aim: to prepare each student for college, careers, and civic life.

What We Offer
School safety is our utmost priority. ALIAC strongly promotes the protection of students from violence, exposure to weapons and threats, theft, bullying, and the sale or use of illegal substances on campus grounds. We ensure that our entrance and exit are strictly monitored. We regularly practice lockdown drills over the course of the school year as we do fire drills, earthquake drills, and other drills. We practice our drills in a realistic manner not simply when it is convenient and least disruptive to the school day.
A typical school week is Monday to Friday, from 7:30am to 4pm or 5pm depending on the grade or year level. Students usually have an am/pm snack breaks and an hour lunch break. Students either eat their lunch at the school cafeterias or bring their own lunch to school. Classes average about 15-20 students (boys and girls together) and regularly students remain in one classroom and teachers come in to teach different subjects. However, students are asked to transfer from time to time depending on the lessons and required learning environment.
Basic Education takes pride of its Certified Teachers—an educator who has earned credentials by earning a Bachelor of Arts/Science degree and holder of the title “Licensed Professional Teacher”.
