MSC Child Development Center

Our Philosophy:

This we believe:
Each child is a unique individual whose immense potentials must be brought to full flowering. Each child must grow – without surrendering his individuality – into a critical thinker, a socially sensitive, self-directed, creative, responsible and caring adult.

This we believe:
The development of a child is the shared responsibility of equally concerned and equally loving parents and teachers in the warmth of home and a child-friendly school.

This we believe:
The Child is Today.
The Child is Tomorrow.


Our Mission:

To provide each child with superlative environment for physical, moral, spiritual, emotional and intellectual growth through a variety of meaningful experiences designed for the child’s total development.

Our Vision:

Each child is a growing individual – with the independence, the sense of responsibility, the intellectual and emotional maturity demanded by a world continuously getting complex. Each child growing into a good human being – with the courage, the ability and the confidence to face the realities of his world.

Each child, a family’s pride.      

25 Years Ago – How MSC Started

By Ike Prudente

On Dec 4, 1989, we started the MSC Computer training center.

Over the years, we branched into all sorts of ventures, from computer hardware to  computer supplies to internet services to business applications and unrelated courses. We gave thousands of scholarships to financially challenged but deserving students. As we look back, we realized our greatest contribution to society are the fine citizens in the community who we helped educate and train these 25 years.

We are now in our new garden site in San Gabriel, refocusing our efforts in our core strengths in education. We now proudly re-introduce ourselves: we are MSC Institute of Technology – THE Math, Science and Computing School.

Start of MSC
MSC is best known as an educational institution. However, MSC started out as a computer software company, not a school.

In June 1989, Jorge Tanalega and I, together with our Cobol Instructor/ STI Center administrator Danny Lopez thought of forming a software development company because we were informed that a local utility wanted to computerize its billing system. With some friends, we brainstormed for a name which can be easily remembered. We thought that SMC (San Miguel Corporation) was very popular so we thought that jumbling the initials would be a good idea.

We thought of MSC and the name Management Systems Consultants. But when we tried to register it with the Department of Trade and Industry as a single proprietorship business entity, it was rejected because all the words in the proposed company name are common, generic words. So we added my initials VYP (for Virgilio Y. Prudente). Thus, VYP-Management Systems Consultants was registered.

When I was given the specifications for the billing systems requirement, I thought that I could easily finish it in a few days so I submitted a quotation of P8,000. They did not bother to contact us back. I found out later that a large company quoted P80,000 for the system.

A couple of unforeseen events led us to seriously consider the direction of a new company. In a planning session, Danny Lopez asked us “who do you think are the best programmers in San Pablo?” Of course, I pointed to Jorge Tanalega, Danny and Myself. And so Danny suggested that we establish a computer school. With two other friends from the Kiwanis Club of Lake City, Louie Perlas and Tony Celestino who believed in us, we decided to put up the MSC Computer Training Center.

Several days later, on Dec 4, 1989, on the mezzanine (above what is now LBC) of the Magcase Building on Barleta St., with a classroom with 9 chairs and a laboratory of 5 computers bought with borrowed money, or donated by family and friends, we conducted our first class with our first four students: Arnel Eneria, Christopher Catapia, Jonathan Romo and Noel Baldores – the WE WEH boys!

Our first course , Fundamentals of Computer Operations (FCO) was of course, handled by the teacher among us, Danny Lopez. But since Danny’s expertise is in teaching programming logic and COBOL, he needed help in preparing for his lessons in using the basic software – DOS, Wordstar, Lotus, dBase III.

Our software department headed by Gigi Tanalega doubled as the research department. Research then was very different from research now. Without Internet or books on the popular software, the team of Gigi spent hours, discovering tricks and short cuts using our AT 286, double diskette drive computers (without hard disk) which Danny could teach to our FCO students. This training proved beneficial to Gigi’s boys. Jonald Aguila is now a software developer based in Maryland USA and Edgar Cauyan is now president of CARD MRI Information Technology, Inc.

Anticipating the need for more instructors, we recruited Aniles Aquino (now Mrs. Duma, a professor at the Laguna State Polytechnic University and currently pursuing her doctorate in Education) and Gemma Pangilinan (now Mrs. Dimaano, the registrar of MSC).

In January 1990, a team from the Department of Education Culture and Sports came and told us that we were operating without a permit. Apparently, some not so friendly elements reported us to the DECS. After showing them our facilities which is certainly not below the minimum requirements for a school, I told them that we are awaiting our transfer to our new site before we submit our application for a school. I invited them to view a vacant space in the second floor of a nearby building, which I told them would be the future site of our new school. We also invited them to the “blessing” of our new site on April 1, 1990.

93% of MSC Technical-Vocational Graduates Get National Certification

Congratulations MSC Technical-Vocational Batch 2011!

Of our 58 graduating tech-voc students, 54 (or 93%) have already obtained their National Certification (NC) from the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) for having met the competency requirements of their industry and thus attesting to their “productivity, quality and global competitiveness.”

  • 17 out of 19 (89.5%) passed the Bookkeeping National Certificate Level III;
  • 17 out of 17 (100%) passed the Computer Hardware Servicing National Certificate Level II;
  • 20 out of 22 (91%) earned the Certificate of Competency (COC) in Procedural Programming;
  • 10 of the 20 who also earned the Certificate of Competency for Object-Oriented Programming thus obtaining the Computer Programming National Certificate Level IV.

This is the first time in Laguna that a big group of students from a single school gave a good passing percentage in Programming NC IV. The passing percentages of other Laguna schools this year range from 0 to 2.5%.

One graduating CHS student, Carlo Capule got his NC II last year while two first year CHS students, Adrian Capule and Mark Simon Silva passed this year making it 18 out of 18 for MSC.

Two bookkeeping graduates last year, Grace Mercado and Angel Gesmundo passed this year’s assesment together Daniel Capule who will be graduating next year for a total of 20 passers for MSC this year.

MSC Graduates – Sertipikadong Pinoy – Angat sa Mundo!

Sertipikadong Pinoy - Angat sa Mundo!

Ano ang MSC Advantage?

Ang “MSC Advantage” ay ang kaibahan o kalamangan ng mga mag-aaral at ng mga nagsipagtapos sa MSC kaysa sa mga nagsipagtapos sa ibang paaralan.

Una sa mga ito ay ang ekstensibong pagsasanay sa “computers.” Mas mahaba ang oras na ginugugol sa paggamit at pag-aaral ng kompyuter kaya nagiging mahuhusay ang mga mag-aaral dito.

Katuwang ng ekstensibong pagsasanay ay ang mga gurong nagtuturo sa MSC.  Ang mga guro dito ay tunay na mga propesyonal sa asignaturang itunuturo nila kaya ang natututunan ng mga mag-aaral ay mga ginagamit at ginagawa sa aktwal na buhay. 

Ang guro sa “computer repair” ay tunay na nagkukumpuni ng kompyuter;  ang guro sa “programming” ay tunay na gumagawa ng “programs” ; at ang guro sa “bookkeeping”  ay tunay na “bookkeeper.”    

At ang mga guro sa MSC ay may mga kredensyal sa pagtuturo na naayon sa kwalipikasyon ng Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA).

Pagdating naman sa pag-hahanap ng trabaho ay lamang pa rin ang galling sa MSC.    

Marami sa mga institusyon sa Lungsod ng San Pablo ang nakasanayan na ang pagkuha ng empleyado na nagtapos sa MSC.

Hindi lamang dahil sa kilala na ang MSC sa larangan ng kompyuter, kundi dahil din sa subok na nang mga kompanya dito ang galing ng mga nagsipagtapos sa MSC. 

Lamang pa rin ang MSC sa “National Certification” o NC, isang pagsusulit na ibinigay ng TESDA sa mga magsisipagtapos sa mga kursong teknikal.      

Sa taong ito, 86.4% ang nakapasa mula sa MSC.  Ito ay malaking kalamangan kumpara sa ibang “computer schools”  na halos walang pumasang mag-aaral.  

Mahalaga ang pagsusulit na ito dahil ito ang katumbas ng “board exam” sa ibang mga kurso.

Sa larangan naman ng “scholarship” ay may bagong paraan upang makapag-aral sa MSC nang kaunti lamang ang magagastos.Ito ay bukod pa sa ibang “scholarships” na iniaalok ng MSC sa kanila. 

Sa pamamagitan ng Barangay Scholarship Program ay ihahanap ng “sponsor” ang mga mag-aaral at ang halagang ibibigay ng “sponsor”  ay tutumbasan ng MSC.

The MSC Vision

At MSC IT, students have an edge with computer skills integrated in all subjects and vast resources of knowledge with Internet access in the MSC main campus and the MSC Green School Campus…

At MSC IT, graduates have an edge in getting jobs immediately after graduation…

At MSC IT, teachers and staff are committed to bring out the best in every student…

VYP – MSC Institute of Technology

MSC believes that students should actively take part in their own education. They are encouraged to participate in classroom discussions, and are expected to do their own research, reports, experiments and studies. The teachers act as facilitators and give guidance and knowledge throughout the school year.

School work at MSC includes real-life applications of the skills and knowledge they learn. The monthly-themed activities make learning fun and develop leadership and team work among the students. This prepares our students for the challenges they will face in the real world, and we believe this facilitated learning method gives our students an edge.

MSC also reinforces good values—integrity, responsibility, honesty, excellence—through our Values Education Program and through everyday practice in the classroom. We believe that this is necessary to create well-rounded citizens.

MSC continually updates its curriculum, adding subjects and modules that engage its students’ interests and show that academics need not be boring. This deepens MSC’s commitment to transforming students into lifelong-learners and achievers.

Give your child the MSC advantage!

Now that your child has graduated from elementary school, give your child the MSC Advantage, by enrolling him in the best science and technology high school in San Pablo City, Laguna.

  • Out-of-the-box learning experiences. We believe that learning is not confined to the four walls of a classroom. From our MSC Green School Campus to outbound education trips, we provide alternative learning experiences for our students.
  • Non-traditional learning and creative thinking. Creativity breeds success, both in the classroom and out in the real world. We encourage our students to approach problems from different perspectives and come up with new and better solutions.
