Sibling Discounts on Tuition Fees

The School extends special privilege for siblings through tuition fee discounts. This is to encourage the parents to enroll more than one child in the School regardless of school year level. Students covered by the discount should remain enrolled for the whole school year. Thus, for a set of two or more children enrolled in grade school (including preschool) or high school, each of the children enjoys 5% discount on tuition fees.

 

FAPE – ESC ( Fund Assistance to Private Education – Education Service Contracting

This is awarded to any qualified Grade 7 students. The program beneficiaries of ESC are assured of the Government’s commitment to support their private education in private high schools for as long as they meet the requirements for regular promotion to each succeeding school years. The grant is a tuition fee subsidy and the grantee has to pay top-ups (the differential between the grant and the school’s actual tuition and other fees). The ESC grants shall cover the four years of secondary education from first year to fourth year, meaning they can start only at Grade 7 level. No new grants shall be awarded at higher grade/year levels. The grant is deemed renewed for the next school year if the student is promoted to the next grade/year level and enrolls in the same school.

The grant is deemed terminated for any of the following reasons:

  1. If the student drops out for non-health reasons in the middle of the school year
  2. If the student has not applied for an official leave and does not re- enroll the

following school year

  1. If the student is retained at the same year level or otherwise not promoted to the next higher year level
  2. If the student is suspended for more than 2 weeks or dismissed or expelled by the school for disciplinary violations; or
  3. If the student transfers to a non-ESC participating school.

 

An individual contract (provided in the FAPE website) with the school will be signed by the parent/s to affirm the parent’s commitment to support the students’ completion of secondary education under the program.

POLICY ON REFUND

Section 66 on Student Admission of the Education Law and the Private

Schools (2002) states that:

 

“A student who transfers or otherwise withdraws, in writing, within two weeks after the beginning of classes and who has already paid the pertinent tuition and other school fees in full or for any length longer than one month may be charged 10% of the total amount due for the term if he withdraws within the first week of classes, or 20% if within the second week of classes, regardless of whether or not he has actually attended classes. The student may be charged all the school fees in full if he withdraws anytime after the second week of classes. However, if the transfer or withdrawal is due to a justifiable reason, the student shall be charged the pertinent fees only up to and including the last month of attendance.”

 

However, Immaculate Conception Academy adopts the following policies on refund:

 

  1. Refunds on tuition and fees will be given only to those who paid their tuition and fees in cash basis, and according to the following schedule:
    1. A student may refund 90% of the total tuition and fees paid if he withdraws within one week after the opening of classes.

    4. He may refund 50% of the total tuition and fees paid if he withdraws within four weeks after the opening of classes.
    5.  No refund will be given to any student who withdraws after the fourth week of classes.

Likewise, he will be required to pay all the tuition and other fees due him and may not be admitted for re-enrolment.

GRADE COMPONENTS FOR ACADEMIC SUBJECTS

The grades for academic subjects have the following components: assignment project, recitation, quiz, test, and seatwork.

 

Assignment

An assignment is an activity that stimulates the minds of the students for the next lesson. It is done outside of the regular class meeting (usually at home) and may involve either a past, present or future lesson.

 

An assignment may be given as homework, enrichment exercises (maximum of10 items involving one concept), advanced reading, short research, check-up quiz, interview, one-page written output from journals, inferences or personal reflections, review guide, study guide, or outline. It may also include bringing of materials for the next class.

 

Assignments in any academic subject, except in Mathematics, should not be given more than three times a week.

 

Project/Performance Task

A project/performance task is an activity that requires a longer process and time table in order to come up with a significant output. It is either written, performed, seen, heard or tasted. It must be appealing to the high order thinking skills such as evaluation and synthesis.

 

A project/performance task may be done individually or as a group and must be done inside the classroom, except for investigatory projects and the like that are assigned to Grades 9 to 10 students. Hence, students are not allowed to bring home their projects for completion

Project/performance task done individually is graded according to standard criteria (rubric).

 

Recitation

                 Recitation involves any verbal or non-verbal activity done inside the classroom. This can be in a form of graded recitation, reporting, debate, oral presentation, or panel discussion. It facilitates the learning process and must appeal to higher thinking skills such as comprehension, analysis, synthesis and application.

 

Quiz, Test, Seatwork

These are given to evaluate the extent of students’ understanding of the lessons in a particular subject. They may be given as an essay or an objective-type test/quiz/examination. These forms of evaluation are usually given in written form, although in some cases, they may be given as a practical test.

 

A quiz, test or an examination differ from one another in terms of the number of points given at any time.

 

An examination is given at the end of each quarter and normally would have

at least 30 points. To prepare students when taking quizzes or tests, it is a department policy

that the maximum number of quizzes/tests a student must take during a day is three (3).
