97% of college freshmen from PHINMA Schools are not prepared for college due to their economic state. They focus on helping with the family business rather than their formal learning. They are not used to city life or being away from their families. Because of this, their Math and English skills are equivalent to a fourth grader’s. A majority of them also lack or have no study habits. They also suffer from low self-esteem and self-confidence due to their limited academic skills.


PHINMA seeks to give low-income Filipino youth quality tertiary education by offering them a “Bare Bones, No Frills, Brass Knuckles” kind of learning that equips them with the necessary academic skills to prosper in a professional environment, despite their lack of quality basic and secondary education.

PHINMA Education studied various models and developed its own brand of 'bare bones, no-frills, brass knuckles' education based on the following principles:


Active Learning

Students are taught to learn independently and through practical training modules to prepare them for learning in the professional environment

The Student
