Be a Game Changer. Enroll at iACADEMY.

Parents want the best for their children. I am a parent myself, and like all parents, I want my son to have a bright future. Choosing a good school is key to making this vision a reality. But what makes a good school? Personally, I believe that a good school must do the following: offer courses that are relevant to business and industry trends, provide a safe learning environment for students, allow students to express their creativity and reach their full potential, and train students to become globally competitive. I found the school that meets all of these requirements when I attended the iACADEMY Open House in Bel-Air, Makati last Saturday.

  1. Nostalgic 🙂
    I used to go here during college days since my school is within the vicinity too. We were required to visit the campus every now and then for a school project.

  2. Nova says:

    this is very nice to know… giving the kids the early way to be more knowledgeable into games.

  3. Joy says:

    I know a couple of people graduated in iAcademy and they’re doing well in their chosen field of interest. Looks like iAcademy is doing a great job educating their students.

  4. I see that facilities are really very good! Thanks for sharing.

  5. Children should be given encouragement to fulfill not just their intellectual but also their creative pursuits. I truly hope iAcademy could live up to that promise.

  6. Sounds like a nice school, curriculum and facilities wise. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Arge says:

    It’s a good thing that there are more highly specialized schools, like iAcademy, in our country that will make Filipino students competitive and confident about their skills when they venture into the workforce.

  8. Do they have short course like for post-graduates? And do you know how much they charge per unit?

  9. I was gonna ask those questions that Joy Felizardo have written. It’s nice to know that they offer these courses.

  10. Mhie says:

    All the courses offered is very important. Good to know it’s in Philippines now.

  11. TweenselMom says:

    It’s a good thing they also offer internship program. Students will certainly find it easier to get jobs and be far more competitive than in the past.

  12. Mayu says:

    Bully-proof school. I think this is the most important.

  13. Looks like their facilities are top-of-the-line. The school also looks very modern and has that nice vibe that seems very conducive to learning. I bet the fees are quite steep.

  14. Maan says:

    I’ve read about this school over before, and the hands-on programs really caught my attention. I would love to study here myself!

  15. Ayi says:

    They visited our school during my 4th year and talked about their school and what they can offer. At that time, iAcademy was very new so not many of us bothered to submit an application. Looking at it now, so many things have changed 🙂

  16. Nadia says:

    Animation has really gained grounds in our country. We have world class animators who are behind the most successful works enjoyed by millions of people. Thanks to schools who offer out of the box courses like iAcademy. I hope they offer scholarships too or much better if their tuition fees are not so high. 🙂

  17. Interesting ang Fashion Design & Technology!

  18. Peachy says:

    Fashion Design & Technology sounds so interesting to me! However, I checked their website and it’s quite expensive…
