Top 10 Most Expensive High Schools In The Philippines

With the cost of tuition skyrocketing in the Philippines, education ends up eating a large chunk of any family’s annual expenses. But just how much does it take out of a Filipino family’s wallet to send a child to some of the most exclusive schools? Here are the 10 most expensive schools where you can educate your child in the Philippines this year. Although many private schools are quite secretive about their fees, it’s good to see if parents are really getting what they’re paying for.

Located in the exclusive village of Ayala Alabang, DLSZ’s tuition fees for high school students were set roughly around Php 110,000 per year back in 2011—and this year tuition fee increases were implemented, as well as a campus development fee. This school is known for its great facilities and a strong athletic program, which extends to physical therapy, an enormous football field with synthetic grass, archery and weights rooms, and classes for martial arts, automotives and handicrafts.

9. Colegio San Agustin-Makati

Tuition is now over Php 107,000 for this school located in Dasmarinas Village in Makati, not including hidden fees like miscellaneous fees, yearbook and graduation fees and other charges.  The facilities for this school include enormous multi-level covered courts and gymnasium, well-stocked library and computer center, as well as a cafeteria and polysports complex. It also has large multipurpose auditoriums.

    How did you do your research for this article??? It’s absolutely ridiculous. I can bet you a thousand bucks there are more schools in the country that are more expensive than the some of the ones you listed. It’s so unprofessional of you to declare these “facts” when you have it all wrong.

    Southville tuition for high school costs less than grade school. It would be best if the maker of this list didn’t make assumptions like that if he or she wants to achieve a degree of credibility.

    The article should be re-titled the most expensive of 2010 or 2011 not 2015 since the tuition fees cited are from those years harhar.

    Also, the author forgot Chinese International School Manila with P420k tuition for those in Grades 11 to 12. Singapore School Manila as well. The King’s International School Manila.

    I am also sure ICA is at least 120k and thus should be ranked as well.

    it doesnt matter what school it is….as long as the child performed well…
    besides….exclusive schools do not give us the guarantee to land for a better future…it all depends on the person itself…be it private or public…what matters most is the ability of the child to battle and cope up in everyday’s struggles…if they are not prepared to apply what they have learned in real life situation …everything will be useless…

      Choosing the right school matters a lot! One bad teacher can crush a child’s self esteem. A great school has great teachers that impart values and uphold high expectations of excellence. It breaks my heart to know that so many children attend low quality schools with weak teachers.

    I agree that it all depends on the student itself but sending your kids to expensive and credible schools gives a better chance of success. I don’t mind sending my kids to public schools as long as it is at par with these schools in terms of facilities, quality of teachers, and most importantly safety. Not to mention the school tradition and character formation these schools provides.

    Why not make a list of Top Ten HS with best standard or quality of education with no tuition fee? You can start with PhiSci and QueSci. I bet the students here are the ones who need to be acknowledge and the institution as well. There are still things that MONEY CAN NOT BUY.

    Brent International School Manila’s definitely the best in the Philippines, and I’m not just saying that cause that’s what I read on this article. I have relatives going there and if I wasn’t attending Institut Le Rosey in Switzerland right now, I would definitely move to the Philippines and go to Brent!

    this is ridiculous. there are many other schools who charge bigger than the ones here.

    and why are there only catholic schools exclusive to boys here? SHS (school of the holy spirit in BF homes, quezon city), miriam, ICA (immaculate concepcion academy), and poveda all charge between 110k and 170k every year

    Lots of expensive schools but students nowadays ended up undergrad. Better to send my children to a not so known school to save money for their college. Better grad in a known public school with head up high. Intergity, respect and brainful.

    This is nothing compare to King’s school Manila which follows the british curriculum even the Pre nursery costs 456,485 a year while the most expensive grade level is the Year 9 which costs 932,432. Can you imagine paying almost a million for your child to enroll in this school. I agree with the name its totally for the Kings who can afford this much.
