About Us

HISTORY

Anima Christi Center first opened as a therapy center in 1997, providing various therapy and interventions for students with learning challenges. The school came into being in 1999 as a response to parents who lamented the fact that big, traditional schools are to unable to provide appropriate opportunities for their children. Anima Christi Center first opened as a school that provided regular DepEd curriculum to learning-challenged but potentially capable students such as those with ADHD, high functioning ASD and emotionally disturbed. Presently, Anima Christi Center additionally provides special education as well to those who are best helped with non-academic programs such as daily life and social skills training.

MISSION

Anima Christi Center for Learning and Human Development offers graded and non-graded educational format in a progressive and child-centered format with a unique curriculum that integrates therapeutic, intervention and accommodation processes. Through this, the school aims to provide education that serves as a vehicle, through which every learning-challenged child develops his spiritual well-being, realizes his potentials and become a positive and functional member of his family and society.

VISION

Anima Christi Center for Learning and Human Development envisions education as an empowering and healing process that transforms every learning-challenged child into a self-actualized individual whose spiritual identity is upheld and acknowledged.
