The Beacon School
Founded on the idea of providing students with the opportunity to develop an understanding Filipino culture and heritage, The Beacon School was established in the Philippines in 2000.

They solved the problem of Filipino schools being too much Filipinized and mainstream International Schools being farfetched from the host country. However, this was not an easy task, so they needed all the resources they can get o achieve that. Today, to get the return of those investments, students pay an average of P578, 000 per year.
