The ACP program aims to train Grades 9 and 10 students as Aerospace Cadets to enable them to meet the requirements for leadership, law enforcement and community service and prepare them for technology and skill oriented jobs in the highly specified field of aviation through Aerospace education, citizenship and military training.
Forty percent (40%) of the total training hours in each training phase will be devoted to Aviation Education,this is a combined group study and self study program that may utilize information technology in accomplishing some of its lesson requirements which are presented in modular format. Aviation Education is designed to make the cadet fully aware of the importance of aircraft in today’s world of the future,the social economic impact of aerospace development. This understanding will prepare them to contribute for the aerospace technology development.
The remaining sixty (60%) percent of the time will be divided for Leadership, Citizen and Military Training. Ecology awareness will receive emphasis. Likewise, rescue training, first aid and law enforcement subjects are included to prepare cadets for their community services. The greater part of time alloted for military science will be devoted to drills and ceremonies; this is where cadet discipline will be primarily developed an enhanced.
Aside from the regular training, an Aerospace Cadet will serve as member of the Aerospace Cadet Detachment and may also have the chance to participate in the International Cadet Exchange Program.
Majority of Aerospacers are self-confessed Japanese anime fans. Luckily for our Grades 9 and 10 students, they have Nihongo classes twice a week where they learn to write and speak using the Japanese language. Integrating Foreign Language (Nihongo) in our high school curriculum has been very beneficial to our Filipino students because it prepares them for local and international opportunities that would require communicative competence in a second foreign language.
As the number of Japanese enrollees is increasing in IAU, they no longer feel awkward getting along with their Japanese classmates but feel at home with them because they can already understand and speak several Nihongo words and even a few Nihongo phrases and sentences. There’s no best way to foster friendship with foreign classmates than to learn their language.
Every Wednesday and Friday throughout the school year, Indiana Learning Center offers students from Grades 4-10 music lessons facilitated by two qualified music teachers. While other students in other schools do not have the opportunity to use and handle even a single musical instrument, our school offers free music classes to Grades 4 and 5 using recorders, Grades 6 and 7 using guitars, Grades 8 and 9 with their violins and Grade 10, the keyboard.
For about six successive years already, students have enjoyed playing their respective musical instruments on stage through the annual music recital where parents have always been invited to witness their children playing the above-mentioned instruments. It is our hope that with these music classes added to our school curriculum, students’ interest in music will be honed and those who are not inclined to music will be inspired to try awakening their hidden talents in this field. Furthermore, instead of engaging in worthless activities that spoil young minds, the basic education administration hopes that with these free music classes, the children can have the chance to shift their interest to something more worthwhile, thereby enabling them to experience the JOY IN MUSIC.
