Educational Service Contracting (ESC)

Augustinian Abbey School is now an ESC-participating school in the Department of Education’s Education Service Contracting (ESC) Program for incoming Grade 7 students. ESC aims to provide financial assistance to deserving elementary school graduates who wish to study in private schools.

Program Description

Educational Service Contracting (ESC) is a partnership program by the Department of Education (DepEd) aimed at decongesting overcrowded public junior high schools. In ESC, the excess capacities of certified private junior high schools are “contracted” through slot allocations for students who would otherwise have gone to public schools. The slots come with subsidies called ESC grants, and program beneficiaries are called ESC grantees.
