ACADEMIC TRACK STRANDS

 

SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATHEMATICS STRAND (STEM)

The Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Strand offers the needed academic grounding for those who intend to pursue tertiary programs that are geared towards the physical sciences, mathematics, engineering and technology. It includes core subjects ( subjects that are true to all strands), contextualized subjects (subjects that are also true to all the strands but are given a particular bent according to the nature of the strand).  A unique feature of the strand are the specialized subjects that prepare the students for the tertiary program they intend to pursue. It has an immersion subject that provides a venue for the application of the knowledge gained in both the contextualized and specialized subjects.

 

HUMANITIES AND SOCIAL SCIENCE STRAND (HUMS)

The Humanities and Social Science Strand is designed to equip the learners with the knowledge and skills required for those who wish to pursue academic degrees in the Liberal Arts (Philosophy, Literature, Communication Arts, Journalism ), Education and Social Science (Sociology, History, Behavioral Science, Psychology and Asian Studies). It has three main components, a core curriculum that includes subjects common to all the strands,  a set of applied subjects, the contents of which are the same in all strands but are aimed at developing a different set of competencies and specialized subjects. These specialized subjects differ in both content and competencies from the core and applied subjects.

The Accountancy and Business Management Strand provides adequate pre-
university training for those who are inclined to pursue careers in entrepreneurship,
banking, accountancy, finance and management in the corporate setting and in the
tourism and hotel and restaurant industries. Like the other strands it is also
composed of core, applied and specialized subjects. An important component of this
strand is an off-campus practicum in relevant institutions.

 

HEALTH ALLIED STRAND (GAS-HA)

Learners who dream of embarking on a profession that addresses concerns on health and wellness should take the Health Allied Strand.  This strand equips learners with core competencies as well as specialized skills in the life sciences, thereby providing adequate preparation for their eventual admission in such tertiary programs as Biochemistry, Medical Technology, Nursing, Nutrition and Dietetics,  Pharmacy, Physical and Occupational Therapy, and Speech Pathology. The strand also has an in-campus and off-campus practicum aimed at the practical application of the knowledge and skills gained in the core, applied and specialized subjects.
