Certification

Program Description and Role of PEAC

The Department of Education (DepEd) has commissioned the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC), through its National Secretariat, to establish a quality assurance certification mechanism that would confirm ESC participating private junior high schools’ compliance with DepEd’s standards for recognition. A certified ESC school therefore is one which has complied with all DepEd standards, adheres to applicable DepEd policies and meets the requirements of the self-study procedure prescribed by the PEAC National Secretariat ESC Certification Unit. Through the 2018 CAI, an ESC school is assisted to determine its strength and potentials for becoming a more effective educational institution. The government, through the Department of Education, has looked into the facilities and physical resources of the school prior to the granting of recognition. Therefore, the 2018 CAI focuses more on the functional use of these facilities and resources, rather than the provision thereof.
