About HAPI

Homeschooling has been around in the Philippines for probably since the 70’s through American Christian missionaries who came here with their families. But it has only been in the last 10 years that a surge of awareness and interest has been observed. Momentum has picked up steadily, with more homeschool providers rising up to support the families that desire to do it as a choice over conventional schooling.

HAPI stands for “Homeschool Association of the Philippine Islands”, and is a non-stock, non-profit advocacy of Filipino homeschoolers. Incorporated in June, 2009, it then mobilized leaders of various homeschool groups to mount projects and initiatives to help Filipino homeschoolers-at-large. In October 2010, HAPI was formally launched during the 3rd Philippine Homeschool Conference, and has since gathered approximately 3,000 member parents and children.

HAPI which is run by a diverse core group of volunteers is affiliated with HSLDA (Homeschool Legal Defense of America), the largest homeschooling organization in the world.

HAPI’s MISSION:

To be a catalyst in nation-building, by advancing home education and unifying and empowering home educators across the Philippines.

HAPI’s VISION:

HAPI envisions a movement of transformed families that are compassionate, authentic, competent thus creating positive change in their communities and the nation as a whole.

    • Hello, thank you so much for your inquiry! Please check out the HAPI Members & Affiliates page (http://hapihomeschooler.com/about-hapi/hapi-members-affiliates/) where we have a list of all the homeschool providers that are partnered with HAPI and have received Dep-Ed accreditation for their homeschool programs. Your choice of homeschool should be with one that you feel will assist you the most as you homeschool your child–this will be in terms of curriculum, grading system, reporting, etc.

      Blessings!
