How will one child start his/her way towards holistic education for life? With all the changes of our education system, how can one student prepare himself/herself towards the challenges and opportunities ahead in the real world? One of the country’s biggest educational institutions, STI, prides itself in providing innovative learning and relevant education to its students. For the past 35 years, STI has produced exemplary graduates who are highly prepared for the real world through its Enrollment to Employment (E2E) system—a holistic education approach for student development.
Holistic education is promoted through specialized co-curricular and extra-curricular programs that allow students to hone and exhibit their talents inside and outside of their respective courses. For instance, as part of its student development programs, the school holds its annual STI Talent Search, which brings together the best and brightest students across its network of campuses nationwide.
This year, more than 20,000 senior high school and tertiary students gathered and competed in this year’s STI Singing Idol, Battle of the Bands, Hataw Sayaw dance competition, and the much-awaited Search for Mr. and Ms. STI 2018. This year’s program highlighted STI’s 35th anniversary with a whole day of festivity at the Enchanted Kingdom park in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
For the upcoming second semester, students can look forward to a line-up of activities where they can continue to showcase their creativity and skills outside the classroom. Other major events that students look forward to include the STI National Youth Convention, the largest educational caravan in the country, and the STI Sports Cup featuring the National Basketball Tournament and the National Volleyball League.
STI offers a standardized curriculum with mirrored activities across its network. This guarantees that every student experiences the same developmental activities in each campus in its network.
STI looks forward to helping students reach their full potential and hone their skills as they deliver quality education and services. “Apart from the skills, the knowledge and the competencies that they learn in the classroom, they are able to also interact with others, collaborate, and communicate. So all of these are part of our developmental activities,” said STI assistant vice president for academic research Aisa Hipolito,
In line with its continuing mandate to provide holistic education and to produce highly competent graduates, STI once more opens its institution for enrollment in the second semester of 2018. For students planning to shift courses or to transfer for the second semester, STI also provides hassle-free processing through the STI Priority Transfer Program.
