NSDAPS, a PAASCU accredited and PEAC certified school, implements its academic rules and procedures based on its governing school standards and the prevailing policies of the Department of Education
Every school reserves the right to admit or refuse any student applicant, seeking entrance in the school. For our school, it is only when the parents/guardians have agreed to subscribe to the Philosophy, Vision-Mission and Objectives of the NSDA Parochial School, the Ideals of Catholic Education, and to comply with Scholastic Standards of the School, as well as to observe all its rules and regulations that a student applicant can be admitted.
Admission is a very important task of the school. Thus, policies on admission, retention, and transfer of the students have been formulated.
The period of registration is reflected in the approved school calendar. As a general rule, students shall enrol within the registration period.
• High school transferees whose general average is 76 or below and/or have a disciplinary record from their previous school must also follow procedure 1.b. Step 1
All payments should be transacted at the finance office only. Tuition fees and other fees and charges are prescribed by the school with the appropriate instructions coming from the Department of Education, (DepEd). School fees are itemized and posted in the bulletin of information and are applicable for the term prescribed. The school will not release any credential or document unless all pertinent fees are fully paid.
Reservation fee is P500.00 and is deductible from the miscellaneous fee upon enrollment. This is non-refundable and non-transferable if not enrolling.
When a student registers in a school, it is understood that he is enrolling for the whole school-year. A student who transfers or withdraws after the beginning of classes and who has already paid the pertinent tuition and other fees in full or any length longer than one month is entitled to a refund of the tuition, but will be charged in accordance with the following rules:
Summative and quarter examinations are scheduled during the school-year in order to determine the rate of improvement of the students.
A grading system is designed to evaluate the scholastic performance and achievement and to identify the need for feedback and assistance.
The K-12 Basic Education Program uses standards- and competency-based grading system. All grades are based on the weighted raw scores of the learner’s summative assessments. The minimum grade needed to pass a specific learning area is 60 which is transmuted to 75 in the report card. The lowest mark that can appear on the report card is 60 for Quarterly Grades and Final Grades.
Learners are graded on Written Works, Performance Tasks and Quarterly Assessments every quarter. These three are given specific percentage weights that vary according to the nature of the learning area.
The promotion or retention of a student is determined by his performance in a grade level. Depending on the performance, a student may finish the whole course in school or may be asked to finish it in another school.
A learner who did not meet expectations in at most two learning areas must take remedial classes. Remedial Classes are conducted after the Final Grades have been computed. The learner must pass the remedial classes to be promoted to the next Grade Level.
The equivalent of the Final Grade at the end of the school year and the Remedial Class Mark are averaged. This results in the Recomputed Final Grade. If the Recomputed Grade is 75% or higher, the student is promoted to the next grade level. However, students will be retained in the Grade Level if their recomputed Final Grade is below 75%.
Students whose general average is 76 and below and /or have failed a subject/s will be placed on “Academic Probation”. A student - on - probation should pass all subjects in the succeeding school year and should have a general average of 77 and above, or else will be asked to transfer to another school.
A student enrolled may transfer to another school, provided there are no unsettled obligations with Nuestra Señora De Aranzazu Parochial School.
He/She should undergo an exit interview as a prerequisite to the release of transfer credentials. This may be withheld for reason of suspension, expulsion, non-payment of financial obligations or property responsibility of the student to the school. The credentials shall be released only after the obligation has been settled or the penalty of suspension or expulsion is lifted.
The school has adopted its own criteria for academic honors and award system.
For every class in Nursery 1, Nursery 2, and Kindergarten levels, at the end of the school year, Special and Academic Awards from all the subject areas taught are given.
The selection of honor students shall be done on the basis of merits,
fairness and justice.
The Gold Loyalty Medal is awarded to the graduate who has studied from Nursery to Grade10 in NSDAPS.
The school offers privileges to students according to the following provisions:
The Educational Service Contracting scheme, or ESC, is a program provided for by Republic Act 8545 (amending R.A. 6728), or the “Expanded Government Assistance to Students and Teachers in Private Education, or GASTPE. Its main objective is to decongest public secondary schools by “contracting” the excess capacities of private high schools through the provision of subsidies for students who, otherwise, would have gone to the public high schools.
