Senior High School

Welcome to our Senior High School Department

Through the SHS program, we will provide the mastery concepts and skills to help you prepare for your college life and future careers. Our students enjoy the diversity of knowledge from the whole university and its immersion programs with our different colleges and other external partners. Another advantage is that you don’t need additional bridging programs to apply to your college of choice, wherever it may be. Should you find immediate employment here or abroad, you can apply for TESDA national certificates for this purpose.

Additional financial assistance is also available for this program. As a member of the Private Education Assistance Committee, a Php 22,500 cash assistance will automatically be received by a student from a public school while Php 18,500 from a private institution.

Contact us for more details on this assistance or any questions you may have, or apply now and be part of the MCU community.

SHS Strands


Our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) strand is different from the other strands offered in the Metro due to our focus on advanced concepts and topics in Earth Science, Pre-Calculus and Calculus, Physics, and the like.

A STEM student can become a pilot, an architect, an astrophysicist, a biologist, a chemist, an engineer, a dentist, a nutritionist, a nurse, a doctor, and a lot more.


Do you see yourself owning or running an enterprise? Are you interested in taking a degree in relation to accountancy and business? Explore the Accountancy, Business, and Management or ABM strand! This strand introduces you to basic principles of the various functional business areas such as marketing, finance and accounting, information and technology, and entrepreneurship.


If you are pursuing a college degree in Liberal Arts like Literature, Communication Arts, Philosophy, in Education, in Social Sciences like History, Psychology, Philippine and International Studies, and in Mass Communication, Journalism, and Broadcast Communication, then the Humanities and Social Sciences strand or HUMSS strand is perfect for you! It is a stepping-stone for students in discovering and exploring the world, what is in it, and what is beyond it. As such, the strand is tailored to stimulate and enrich the creative, reflective, evaluative, and even critical and analytic skills you possess.


If you are still undecided on what to take and feel lost yet pressured on what degree to choose after finishing Senior High School, you can take the General Academic Strand or GAS strand. This is the most flexible strand among the other strands offered in the academic track because students will have the chance to learn and experience something from all three other strands! Giving you an overview and making sure you will know your path and be prepared for it once you’re done.
