Senior High School

SoFA Design Institute puts creativity first. The curriculum of our Senior High School (Arts & Design) program stimulates students' curiosity about the world and makes it a source of inspiration. But the real work of our students begins when they transform that information by making it a part of their story. INQUIRE NOW.

Senior HighSchool Arts & Design Track

The SoFA Design Institute Senior High School provides an exciting venue for aspiring young artists, designers and entrepreneurs. Our accredited 2-year Arts & Design program offers tomorrow's creative leaders an early start on their individual journeys of self-discovery. Our learner-centered program is led by experienced faculty who are respected professionals in their respective fields. Our teachers are experienced in challenging students to evolve and strengthen their unique identities.


Much of this work is performed through the integration of two areas of concentration: general education and design studies. These disciplines are further fused within our Integrated Lab - where academic, social and scientific values are blended into a singular basis for meaningful creative action.


WHAT IS UNIQUE TO SoFA SHS?



Aside from our experienced faculty, who nurture our students through one on one, personalized education and consultation, the SoFA SHS Program emphasizes meaningful creative work that can be applied to their own and their community’s needs. This is achieved via the integration of general education subjects with arts and design, through extensive curriculum development, planning and collaboration between teachers.



Lessons are taught through the SoFA Method —a systematic educational process which encourages participants to build beautiful yet practical solutions to issues ranging from the personal to the global.



With the SoFA Method, our program is delivered in a pioneering modular format, unique to SoFA SHS. To increase student engagement and concentration, term subjects are delivered in two separate modules. With only 5 - 6 subject areas to concentrate on for each module, instead of the usual 10 - 12 subjects in the traditional curricular format, SoFA students are able to gain more in-depth knowledge and insight through this distilled quick-fire format. With fewer subjects to focus on at any one time, students are able to perform to the best of their ability, while affording our faculty the capability to hone their skills further at a more personalized level.



With each class section kept to only a maximum of 15 students, we ensure the highest level of quality in lesson delivery and assessment.


For S.Y. 2022-2023, this program will be delivered through the SoFA C.R.E.A.T.E. (Collaborative Remote Experience through Art and Transformative Education) Program.

Senior HighSchool Accountancy and Business Management Track

Every successful creative brand and business requires top-notch talents who are business-savvy and have the management and financial know-how. Our distinct approach to teaching the Accountancy and Business Management (ABM) strand of Senior High School (SHS) at SoFA Design Institute will equip aspiring creative entrepreneurs with the necessary skills to manage and run day-to-day operations of enterprises — whether it be their own or a multinational firm.

Unlike the traditional approach to learning ABM, students of our ABM track will be trained in subjects such as Accountancy, Statistics, and Business Mathematics with the human customer and professional in mind. Our ABM students, on top of learning about business trends and numbers, will master design thinking, communication, and socialization as the fundamental pillars of their practice through our Design Studio classes and our range of design electives. In keeping with our distinct approach to teaching design, which we coin the “SoFA Method”, our ABM track marries creativity with mathematical application and business sense to prepare the best business professionals of tomorrow.

Our curriculum, much like our other SHS stands, will prioritize subject integration that will allow for minor subjects such as Physical Education and the Sciences to take on a more meaningful role in our students’ learning journey. This way, learning is maximized while students’ work load is minimized.

Students who select this route will be prepared for colorful careers as managers, accountants, and business owners capable of creating exceptional and purposeful brands that can move societies and economies of tomorrow forward.

Senior HighSchool General Academic Track

Aimed at nurturing curious creative minds, SoFA Design Institute’s Senior High School (SHS) General Academic Track (GAS), offers aspiring creatives the requisite dexterity and know-how to stand out and excel in the study of humanities, social sciences, economics, and community management. This SHS strand, unlike others, enables students to become design thinking leaders, elevated social strategists, analytical contributors and creative communicators.

The GAS strand is primarily designed to enrich students’ learning experience by exposing them to a mix of complementary subjects from various disciplines. Coupled with our distinct teaching pedagogy called the “SoFA Method'', our GAS program aims to train well-versed professionals in the areas of society, culture, politics, and public management with creativity and design thinking at their core. This versatile approach to teaching this DepEd-compliant program offers young creatives the opportunity to build their career on more flexible and personalized foundations.

Students of this program will be trained in the subjects of Humanities, Social Sciences, Applied Economics, Organization and Management, and Disaster Preparedness to enable them to develop critical cognitive skills in decision making and creative problem solving. Furthermore, our GAS students will have the chance to enrich their knowledge and understand the social impact of arts & design in global cultures and society through different design electives that they can personally choose from throughout their program.
