Home-based and independent learners are growing worldwide. However in the Philippines the system, procedures and directions are still very lose and disorganized in the K to 12 levels. Parents literally go out on a limb whenever they want to independently school their children. There are also students who end up staying out of school because formal education is no longer effective to them nor does it fit their specialized career paths.
Alternative Learning System is a parallel learning system in the Philippines that provides a practical option to the existing formal instruction. When one does not have or cannot access formal education in schools, ALS is an alternate or substitute. ALS includes both the non-formal and informal sources of knowledge and skills.
The founders of MyHill saw the benefit of the ALS curriculum to home-based and independent learners due to its inclusive approach.
