Anthony Coloma, CEAP Advocacy and Information Management Officer, said that at least three of its member schools are “discerning” on proposals to change the school calendar.
“As far as I know, the other CEAP members schools discerning are the De La Salle University, University of Santo Tomas and the Adamson University,” he said.
The Ateneo de Manila University earlier this week announced that it is adopting the August to May school calendar for its undergraduate and graduate schools starting school year 2015-2016.
“Although ADMU is a CEAP member school, it is their discretion and communal decision to move into a new school calendar,” Coloma said.
Coloma also said that Ateneo, La Salle and UST are “autonomous schools” because they have a “long tradition of excellence in the area of education”.
“We can only show our support to them for taking the step towards a globally competitive education institution,” he said.
Opening of classes in the state-run University of the Philippines, except Diliman Campus, will also be moved from June to August beginning academic year 2014-2015. (CBCPNews)
