Our Student Leadership Program is more than a buzzword

Here’s an overview of our application process:


Our youth leadership program puts a premium on academic excellence, viewing it as a good gauge that the student exercises the human virtues and has set some goals.  Every candidate must belong to the top 10% of her batch.

The program is offered to  incoming female Grade 11, 12, college freshman, or second year University student enrolled in a five-year course.  At the time of the application, she should have been admitted to any of the top academic institutions by the start of the academic year (with special preference to those going to UP, Ateneo de Manila, UST, DLSU, UA&P).
