An online high school to be launched with a celebrity singer/songwriter TJ Monterde

On October 23rd, artist/advocate TJ Monterde will help launch the Academe Philippine Online High School (APOHS), the first online open high school in the Philippines designed for learners in grades 7 through 10.

TJ, aside from being a chart-topping singer-songwriter, is also an education advocate. "My parents brought me up to prioritize my studies…

This strong foundation empowered me to make my own mark in the world inside and outside the music studio.

No matter what we do and where we come from, we should all have the opportunity to a good education, to preparation for the real world.

"Yet sometimes, our passion, location, age, or background becomes an obstacle to getting that opportunity. But with the Academe Philippine Online High School, these obstacles are overcome," TJ enthused. "You see, education should be beyond borders. The APOHS makes it possible."

APOHS ensures the highest quality digital curriculum that is rigorous, engaging and aligned to Philippine's K-12 Basic Education Curriculum, through a partnership with QUIPPER. The school's online structure allows for flexibility, accessibility, and affordability, which are ideal for the present-day, independent, Filipino learner.

To express his support for the cause, TJ will headline the APOHS's Grand Launch on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 to speak about the advocacy and perform his own music. He hopes to serve as a source of inspiration to Filipino audiences, using the influence of his music to further a significant cause for the nation's betterment.
