Blended Learning Center-Manila is for kids and families who believe in adaptive, non-traditional education.
We're a growing community of independent thinkers who know that grades aren't what make a successful student, and that learning is not confined to a classroom.
"Sana may ganyan noong bata ako (I wish BLC was around when I was a kid)," is something we get quite a lot from our parents.
We're readers, artists, thinkers, tinkerers. We love nature and animals; we're a bit awkward, we like to laugh a lot, and hold Filipino culture and values close to our hearts.
We believe that combining good memories and experiences with teachable moments is the best way to get lessons "to stick".
We don't take ourselves seriously, but we do believe in and practice integrity, honesty, and rigor. We know when to let go, and when to pull in the reins.
We're not for everyone, because in BLC-Manila, we believe that being different is better. Not in an obnoxious, contrived sort of way, but in a way that makes individuals brave enough to listen to their own inner voice and values, hold onto their own convictions, and not allow themselves to be swayed by what is popular or "the norm". And that makes us, in our own way, a little more unafraid, a little less self-conscious, maybe even a bit more naive—but all the more willing to make the world a better place.
