Quality education need not be expensive.
Colegio de San Lorenzo has partnered with the Quezon City government in providing a college educational program that offers the lowest possible payment scheme for tuition and other matriculation fees to incoming freshmen.
Under the program, a new student can enroll in any degree program of his/her choice for a sum of only P15,800 if payment shall be made on cash basis. The school only charges P600 per unit.
The payment scheme has been described as probably the lowest offered by any private educational institution, said Cirilo Lloyd Balgan, Colegio de San Lorenzo’s chief executive officer.
“This is our gesture of giving back to the students from Quezon City, as well as from cities and municipalities in Metro Manila, the blessings and gains the institution and Colegio de San Lorenzo family had achieved in the past 25 years,” Balgan said.
Education for the poor has always been one of the centerpiece programs of Mayor Herbert Bautista since he assumed office in July 2011 in the belief that education levels the playing field between the rich and the poor.
For installment basis, an initial down payment of P5,000 or less is required from enrollees of Colegio de San Lorenzo.
To date, Balgan said, Colegio de San Lorenzo boasts of simulated hotel rooms and complete baking and kitchen setup for students taking up a degree course in Hotel and Restaurant Management and fully-functioning editing rooms, speech laboratory, studio, director’s booth and dark room for Communication.
The school, located at Congressional Avenue, has a campus-wide WiFi access and equipped with air-conditioned classrooms with functioning computers and LCD projectors.
Also offered by Colegio de San Lorenzo are degree programs in business administration, tourism management, computer science, psychology and education. -30- Precy/ Maureen Quinones, PAISO
