Expected of all Students
At SKIA, places emphasis on undergraduate research and scholarship. This approach is built into every student’s experience. It serves as the foundation for entire academic courses. Thus, all prospective graduates must complete an individual senior thesis.
Research internship is not about clinical equipments in laboratory only. It may take the form of a research project, a portfolio, a research paper, an art exhibit, an ethnic dance festival or other project that pertains to the student’s area of study. SKIA partners with institutions for career path emersion.
Academic Transition and Social Transition
Our K-Plan for college readiness at SKIA introduces the core general education components previously offered in freshman college curriculum to Grades 11 and 12. A rigorous curriculum and flexibility will shape your major and all other classes with guidance from faculty advisors or mentors through personalized academic experience with lifelong value. You can articulate your campus experience into desired career and communication skills through:
- Resume writing
- Interviewing skills
Experiential learning occurs in every dimension of K-Plan. Excellent academics still serve as a well-rounded foundation of a college experience in humanities, social sciences, and the arts. Advanced learning skills include core courses to contextualize intellectual thought which is now expanded with advances in technology, knowledge and social responsibility.
In many respects, the emergence of career education makes general education requirements relate more to the individual than to advanced learning skills—which assist them in postsecondary studies and lifelong learning. Grade K-Senior high students will decide what it means for them to participate in civic engagement and service-learning projects or leadership work portfolio. For indeed, what you do outside the classroom is just as important to your future as what you study.
About STEM Success Initiative
Where does K-Plan lead SKIA completers? They get to know how to think critically, solve programs creatively, and collaborate across cultures and languages.
Why adapt the STEM Success Initiative with a career-focused model? At SKIA, it’s an inclusive learning community of students, staff, and faculty engaged in introductory science, including mathematical precision, statistics and computer literacy. Reading matters: the first step is to approach a wide range of texts to “tease out meaning” and then formulate arguments that goes by extensive writing and discussion.
No matter what approach it takes there’s no substitute for work-experience operational skills acquired by applying learnt theories to actual practice. Experiential learning education occurs on athletic fields, in campus organizations, and through campus employment or volunteer service in community.
Faculty Attendance and Academic Support
You will select courses in three areas: arts and humanities, history and social sciences, and mathematical and natural sciences. The idea is to expose you to the forms of inquiry and discourse in a range of disciplines as early as the second semester of your first year. Common reading and its ability to experience our world will stretch your understanding of the core text and its ideas.
You will get academic support from Faculty Learning Community at pedagogical conference and through broadening courses in global and cultural perspectives, religious perspectives and foreign language to gain insight into other cultures.
Our curriculum works neatly if you wish to decide what you want to major or select a field of concentration. However, it works just the same should you prefer to explore widely before you make that decision. Grade-K Senior high students connect classroom learning with real-world experience by completion of career development internship or externship.
You will explore a subject of your own interest culminating in a senior individualized research paper, performance or creative work project. If you have questions, please contact us.
The Faculty Committee on Academic Standards chair designates Faculty Advisors who are knowledgeable about each student’s plan of study to chart and monitor degree completion until he is ready for graduation.
Because research is the backbone of guidance services, faculty mentoring is at the core of academic advising with emphasis on personalized instruction and support. SKIA Advisors are prepared to guide and advise student accordingly and foster a positive relationship between faculty and students.
First year students are assigned a primary advisor from the staff in the Dean’s Office, while transfer and continuing students are assigned a primary advisor within their major. Contact and identify your primary advisor in www.skia.edu.ph. Web via the Curriculum Offerings tab.
