I was invited to visit one of the promising schools in the Philippines together with other fellow blogger friends where we had the chance to meet the key people behind it. We are welcomed by Ms. Raquel Perez who gave us the introduction about their school, iACADEMY.
It was followed by a breakout sessions with the Deans of different academic divisions. We met Chair Ryan Abeledo for MMA and Dean Dane Romely for Animation. It was very amusing to know how they teach their students. They use the modern, very practical and hands-on in teaching that making their student learned not just the basics but the ins and outs of the industry to shape their future in their chosen fields. Not to mention the state of the art facilities and the environment that they have to keep their students creativity immersed.
We also had the courtesy visit to iACADEMY’s President, Ms. Vanessa Tanco, who is very hospitable and down to earth. Actually, I love her Lego collections and heard that she was the one who assemble it. Amazing right!
Lastly, we had the campus tour. We use the stairs to fully visualize the whole campus building as set to be creative because every floor there is a mural with different themes that describes the schools and the students of iACADEMY. Did I mention before their state of the art facilities? Yes, they have it because they used one is to one ratio with their computers and it was so impressive because they have Mac computers for their laboratories. The libraries and their amphitheater are very nice as well. They also encourage students to visit the faculty as well as the president’s office if there are some concerns that make their environment to be more like homey compare to other schools.
