UA Junior High School Students Enjoy ESC Grant and Other Scholarships

Committed to offer quality and accessible education for all, the University of the Assumption Junior High School continues to provide scholarships and financial grants to junior high school students. One is through the help of the Department of Education’s Education Service Contracting (ESC)program which extends financial assistance to junior high school students for the past nine (9) years.

ESC is a program under the Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education (GASTPE) which is granted to private schools that have government recognition, passed certification and/or accredited by agencies under the Federation of Accrediting Agencies of the Philippines (FAAP).

UAJHS, as a PAASCU Level II re-accredited institution,is a reliable arm in delivering government subsidy to students. In recognition of the excellent education that UAJHS offers, GASTPE provides assistance to all regular junior high school students of UA amounting to P8,500 for grades seven, eight and nine and P7,500 for grade ten.

ESC grant covers four years of junior high school education which means that incoming grade seven students will receive the grant until grade 10.

Aside from ESC, UA Junior High School also offers various scholarship programs for honor students sports and culture.

Ms. Edita Sagmit, UAJHS Principal said that these scholarship programs are meant to provide financial assistance to our students because we value them and, more importantly,

“we want everyone to have access to the Assumption education which is anchored on academic excellence, Christian formation and service to the community.”
