Miriam College Adult Education


Miriam Adult Education (MAE) is a pioneer school in Adult Education in the Philippines. We began as a special academic unit established by the Maryknoll Sisters in the 1960s to provide quality and affordable education to underprivileged adults and out-of school youth. In staying true to our mission of making education inclusive, relevant, and accessible to all, MAE has opened its doors to students who are deaf, mainstreaming them in classroom learning in all levels and courses.

Today, we offer Senior High School, Junior High School, Alternative Learning System (ALS), and Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) Programs. Classes in these programs have afternoon and evening schedules. The evening classes are in place to better serve students who need to work during the day.

Through these programs we aim to equip our students with the necessary life skills, knowledge, and values to help them improve their lives.
