The Silliman University Early Childhood School provides an environment where children four to six years old can develop their inherent potentials to the fullest. It offers a well-planned program which challenges them to extend their horizons through new learning but at the same time, safeguards their security.

A program for Early Childhood helps each child to develop and maintain optimum health; further his physical development; extend his understanding of the social world; enter into his scientific world; grow in understanding of spatial and quantitative relationships; expand his control of language; enjoy his literary and musical heritage; express himself aesthetically through various art media; establish satisfying relationships with children and adults; understand and enter into a relationship with God through religious activities.


Historically, the Silliman University School of Basic Education Elementary Department was opened primarily “to furnish superior instructions for children of the faculty and the local constituency.”  The school continues to provide quality instructions to its clientele.  It also serves as a laboratory for the College of Education.

As a school, it is committed to the total development of the child and the conservation of his environment.  It continuously endeavors to actualize its vision by offering an enriched curriculum; providing a wholesome environment which is conducive to teaching and learning; supplementing its academic program with varied and rich co-curricular activities; providing adequate facilities to enhance teaching and learning; providing strong support services; establishing good relationship with top administration and other departments in the University and linkage with government and non-government organizations and the community.

The Silliman University High School adopted the New Secondary Education Curriculum (NSEC) which is under the 1989 Secondary Development Program (SEDP).  The legal bases of this New Secondary Education Curriculum are Article II, Section 13 and 17, and Article XIV, Section 1, of the 1987 Constitution.  The philosophy and objectives of Silliman University as a Christian university are incorporated with the national goals.  Educational aims, and the present objectives of the Philippine secondary education.

The Silliman University High School believes that our cultural and national heritage is communicated most effectively through one’s behavior; hence, the school teaches by precept and example a humane philosophy in all aspects of its endeavors.  It accepts the challenge to provide training for leadership and a strong foundation in the fundamental processes in the sciences and humanities to prepare the student for college education and at the same time equip him with the skills for gainful employment.  It emphasizes a profound respect for humanity in all its diversity with a concern for individual rights and responsibilities.
