About the School and Program Contents

Q: Can I customize the lessons?
A: Yes, our lesson programs are customizable. Please contact us for details.
Life in the Philippines
Q: I'm concerned about public security in the Philippines. Is it a safe place?
A: Both the school and dormitory are manned with security guards around the clock and the locations are in safe areas. So you may live at ease unless you leave the school/dormitory alone with no permission.
Q: Is there any available Internet access?
A: Yes, students may use Internet access free of charge both in the school building and dormitory.
Q: What kind of meals do you serve?
A: Mainly we serve Filipino meals, which are received well by many students. You can also be assured of the quality of rice. We always serve bread and fruits, too.
Q: Should we do cleaning and laundry ourselves?
A: There is dedicated staff for cleaning and laundry. Please ask them to do cleaning and laundry any time.
Q: How much cash should I bring to the Philippines? Can I use my credit card there?
A: Besides the other fees to be paid in the Philippines, 100 US$-200 US$ would be enough for spending for leisure. However, it depends on the person and desired activities (sightseeing, etc.). Many stores accept credit cards.
Q: Can I enjoy other activities such as sightseeing?
A: You may enjoy activities on Saturdays, Sundays and local holidays. For detailed information, please contact our local staff.
Q: Is the dormitory room single-occupancy, or shared?
A: We offer single, double, triple and quad dormitory rooms.
Private bathrooms are only available in single rooms. The rate varies among the room types. Anyway, our dormitory facilities are gorgeous both in appearance and functionality, so we believe you will be satisfied with it. (A swimming pool is open to students in the dormitory.)
