Program Background

The Andrew L Gotianun Sr Center for Integrated Technologies (ALGCIT) Senior High School is an endowment from the Andrew L Gotianun Foundation for a three-year residential Tech-Voc Senior High School to competent yet financially disadvantaged youth. The program features (1) quality instruction and learning environment, (2) intensive Jesuit formation, and (3) an extended academic, community, and on-the-job experience. Tuition, matriculation, and other school fees are all covered by this scholarship.

ALGCIT scholars will be housed in modern and safe dormitories and hold their classes in a state-of-the-art building situated inside the Manresa complex. Their new campus provides plenty of experiences and activities for our scholars while they complete their academic requirements and develop their technical skills. Manresa is great for our scholars who live close to historical sites and nature spots, yet desire to experience convenience and accessibility at all times.

The four ALGCIT Tech-Voc Specializations are the following:

  • Automotive Servicing
  • Computer and Electronics Technology
  • Energy and Power System
  • Mechanical Design and Fabrication

Xavier Ateneo received the “Operation Permit” to offer the Tech-Voc track in SY 2014-15 for the senior high school program, following the K-12 educational reform. The Center has existing partnerships with numerous local and international companies to employ its graduates. Students who complete the program are also eligible to take the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) National Certificate (NC) examinations for the respective qualifications embedded in each program.

At the end of the three-year program of boarding school, the students are expected to graduate world-ready, with international standard competencies, and spiritual and social commitment the Ateneo way.
