MANILA, Philippines – Miriam College and Ayala Land have partnered to create a new school in Nuvali that aims to educate and uplift the community and preserve the environment.
“Three things are most important in life: Timing, Opportunity, and Choice,” Rosario O. Lapus, Miriam College President, said in her speech during the soft-launching of the new campus.
“This opportunity for Miriam College to come to Nuvali has come at the right time. And we have made our choice. The right choice for us as a school,” she said.
“In this new place, in our Nuvali setting, serving a more diverse set of students, we will be ready to deliver our unique brand of Miriam College education,” Lapus said.
The 15-hectare Miriam College Nuvali is set to open in 2014 after years of research, study, and consultations with the local sector and potential market. The new school will have the best a school can offer: an athletic field, real and virtual classrooms, and a Learning Media Center with computer labs, among others, Lapus said.
