Philippine Science High School System opens applications for SY 2017-2018

11:42 PM

The Philippine Science High School System has recently opened the application period for the 2016 National Competitive Examination (NCE).


Application forms can be downloaded for free from the PSHS website (www.pshs.edu.ph) or from any PSHS campus, DOST office, and Provincial Science and Technology office. Deadline for submission is September 2, 2016. For public school students, examination fee is free. However, I believe I paid 100 pesos for my son who was enrolled then in a private school for boys. He will now be in Grade 10 in Philippine Science High School Main Campus (Agham Road, Quezon City) this coming August.


There are many review centers offering NCE reviews for those who want to get in . We didn't get the luxury of time to  do that for my son, though. Thankfully, he was still enrolled in the Kumon program when he took the NCE in 2012. Then, I bought the reviewer sold at Pisay and 2 volumes of MSA reviewers from National Bookstore.

Being in Pisay is a great experience not only for my son but for the whole family. Not only is the tuition fee free, but text books are also loaned throughout the year. The kids get monthly stipend and the amount will depend on the financial capability of the parents. My son gets the lowest monthly stipend of 500 pesos and, from there, his monthly payment of 80 pesos for his dormitory is taken. We get to pay PTA fees and class fund contributions, too.

What I really love about my son being in Pisay is the Pisay community itself. The parents are all supportive of all the activities. You may think that the kids are all crazy on competing among themselves, but that doesn't happen. Everyone helps everyone in Pisay. No one gets left behind.

If your child is well-versed in Science, Technology, and Mathematics, now is the time to apply for a Pisay scholarship. Please don't miss this chance. If you want to know more about our life as Pisay parents and my son's experiences in Pisay, just hit the comment button and I'd gladly respond.

  9. I have visited this school only once for a Science fair when I was still in high school. I was so surprised that lessons here were far more advanced than those being taught to our classes. Pisay is superb!

  14. Hi. I came upon your blog while going over the Internet for forums about Pisay. My son is one of the passers and would-be scholars of Pisay Central Luzon Campus. We live in Bulacan and when we applied for the NCE at the Main Campus, we thought also of checking the tick box stating that if ever my son doesn't qualify to enrol in the Main Campus, we'd consider the regional campus nearest us. So I thought why not, this way my son would have better chances at the NCE. Now that it has happened, my son passed, I and his dad couldn't be happier and prouder.

    I understand that this scholarship is such a privilege and we simply cannot let the opportunity pass. No parent wouldn't want only what's best for their child. The thing is, as days pass, as I go read articles from forums and blogs about Pisay, especially from the students, I am having qualms whether we'd go ahead and enrol my son. You see, he is an only child and we've never been apart. Eventhough I am a working mom, I saw to it that I took care of his every need. You could say that I babied him. We are considering that he'd stay at the campus dorm, if he is qualified to do so. I still don't have much idea on how things go about in Pisay, which adds to my reservations. I guess my concern is mainly on whether he could make it there by himself. We talked to him and he said he could do it and even implied that we do not trust him enough. My friends, who also know him, are also concerned since they knew how we raised him. But they are telling me that this is a chance for him to learn how to be independent. The thing with my son, we almost always have to remind him of the things that he needs to do. The good thing, though, is that the school year at the Central Luzon Campus starts in August (based on their calendar), which still gives us time to "train" him. I am also concerned that he might get teased for being "soft" in his ways and actions. I know I'd been so protective and had sheltered my son so much that now I worry that he might not be able to take care of himself. But again, I couldn't let him pass this chance to study at Pisay. So maybe if you could share some insights, I'd appreciate it.

    PS. Apologies for this long comment. Thanks in advance.

    1. I am so sorry for the super late reply. My son is an only child, too. I did get separation anxiety on his first year in the form. But hey, he's in Grade 10 and guess what? I have never been so thankful that we had him stay in the dormitory even though we are just living in Cainta. His stay in the dorm made him more mature and responsible. He also learned how to manage his money and has been conscious in spending. I'm not familiar on how the set-up is in in the Central Luzon Campus or how different it is from the Main Campus. All I know is that the Pisay community is solid. The kids look out for each other. The parents who are always present in the campus make sure the dormers are alright. The teachers are more considerate of the dormers, too. So don't you worry too much. Your son will enjoy it in Pisay. Welcome to the Pisay community!

    1. It's 60 pesos for the room and 20 pesos monthly for each electronic gadget. During my son's first year, we availed of the cafeteria's meal services. The years that followed, however, my son opted to just have money for his meals so he gets to choose whether he buys in the caf, have fastfood delivered, or go to nearby Trinoma for a quick dinner.
