  • For payment of your child’s account balance, you may pay through any open branch of Metrobank or RCBC near you. Please refer to the table below:

    • For PAYEE, write MARIST COLLEGE, INC.
    • For PAYOR, write the STUDENT’S NAME AND SECTION.
    • After settling the account through bank transanction, kindly email a picture of the bank deposit slip to [email protected] with your child’s name and section so that the Business Office can issue an official receipt of your payment.
      • NOTE: Parents who have directly paid to the bank from March 2020 to present and have not reported the payment to the Business Office are requested to observe this procedure.
  • The facility dedicated for the viewing of report card is for that purpose only.
  • The printed copy of the final report card may only be secured upon resumption of offices, which is dependent on the national and local government announcements regarding enhanced community quarantine.

4. Online Enrollment

  • Online enrollment begins on May 18, 2020. Please do note, however, that only those pupils/students promoted to the next grade level and are fully paid in the previous school years will be allowed to enroll.
  • Print out copies of documents which each pupil/student should provide the school for compliance purposes in connection to their enrollment may be submitted once schools are allowed to resume their operation as per directive of the local and national government.

5. Parents’ Readiness Survey

  • The results of the survey mentioned in the May 6, 2020 circular will provide the school valuable data and information to consider in the design of its online learning program. We would like to thank those who immediately responded to the survey. As for those parents and guardians who have not accomplished the form yet, we encourage you to take some time in answering the survey which will only take you less than 5 minutes.

Indeed, a long and challenging road is ahead of us as our country adapts to the new normal. But if we remain one in this journey, we are sure to succeed for the sake of our children.

Thank you once again for putting your trust in Marist School.

Sincerely

(Signed)
