International Basic Education
SISC uses an international-based curriculum. For preschool to high school, the curriculum is mainly based on the updated Common Core and British curricula. SISC also offers international K-12 curricular programs that integrates the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme offered with the same rigorous standards in 120 countries.
SISC College Division prepares its graduates to be competent, ethical, and globally competitive through an industry - relevant, technology-driven curriculum and competent faculty steeped in industry experience within a safe and caring environment.
For college, the competencies of the various offerings are benchmarked against global standards while adhering to CHED CMOs. Business subjects such as Personal Finance Management and Essentials of Investment, Capital Market/Securities, Financial Investment Management, and Entrepreneurship are integrated across all college courses curricula. SISC has Capital Market and Entrepreneurship Center which generates online stock trading facilities for actual placement of stocks listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE). English language instruction is emphasized. Linkages with industry have been forged to ensure relevance of knowledge and skills in the workplace. International examinations such as the SQL Server Database Microsoft IT Certification, Amadeus Tourism Certification are integrated. For courses with board licensure exams, Nursing and Education pass rates are the highest South of Manila.
While academic rigor is emphasized, success in work and life require other dimensions. Courses on leadership, achievement drive, EQ, interpersonal sensitivity, values on ethics, integrity, global citizenship and nationalism are likewise emphasized.
Apart from being W.A.S.C. accredited, SISC has been recognized as a School of the Future by the Department of Education of the Philippines, an International Baccalaureate (IB) Authorized World School and an International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 9001:2000 certified. The institutional instructional programs are deeply committed to helping our learners achieve their educational and character goals. We work closely with business and industry to develop educational programs relevant to today's workplace. We form linkages with foreign academic institutions to ease our students' transition to a world setting. We develop values that enhance leadership and global citizenship.
Just last July 2016, SISC has been named as a leader in people management practice globally, having been a finalist in the Best Newcomer (International) category in the third annual Investors in People Awards. New to the Investors in People family, SISC was nominated for its particular achievements in seeing investing in people as not a choice, but a necessity. Motivated and empowered teachers will lead to motivated and empowered students.
