Edustria Senior High School (Edustria), a joint venture educational offering from the Far Eastern University (FEU) and the Technological Institute of the Philippines (T.I.P.), has signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with AboitizLand, Inc. to formalize the opening of its first campus at The Outlets at Lipa, Batangas.
Located at the LIMA Estate in Batangas, Edustria aims to provide industry-relevant education that enables students to achieve meaningful careers, economic upliftment, and life aspirations.
“More than producing a competitive technology-based workforce, Edustria is a nation-building venture that realizes the value of cultivating and harvesting the potential of the Filipino youth and the local opportunities available for them,” says the Edustria Board Members in a joint statement.
Edustria will work together with local and multinational companies in the industrial center to provide a dynamic study environment where students learn through classroom discussions, practical hands-on exercises using the most modern computer-based laboratory equipment and tools, and a comprehensive work immersion program. Students will receive training on technical and softs skills to help build their foundation for a meaningful and stable career.
Offering enhanced academic strands (STEM, ABM, and GAS), Edustria students can immediately pursue a career after completion of senior high school. Graduates can also choose to seamlessly earn their college degree at either FEU or T.I.P.
Accessible via public transportation passing through the national J.P. Laurel Highway, Edustria features air-conditioned, multimedia-equipped classrooms, and Wi-Fi internet hotspots around the campus. The senior high school also operates learning and other support facilities such as a fully-stacked library, a guidance and counseling center, and a medical clinic.
Edustria is set to welcome its first batch of Grade 11 students this coming June 2020.
