What is the Adopt-a-School Program?

Implemented based on the principles of volunteerism and multiple partnerships, the Adopt-a-School Program (ASP) of the Department of Education gives the private sector an opportunity to become dynamic partners in education.

Who can be an ASP partner?

Any private individual, group, organization, or institution can become Adopt-a-School partners. A private entity that intends to be part of the program should have a credible track record supported by a certificate of business registration.

What are the benefits of being a partner?

Active involvement in the ASP can be mutually beneficial to both parties. While DepEd gets its schools improved, the adopting private entity obtains tax incentives, strengthened corporate image, and goodwill.
