G.I.F.T Development Program

At the frontline of the formal development of Paulinian talent is the Giftedness Instruction for Talent (GIFT) Development Program which is supported by the Cultural Arts Program (CAP).

Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same spirit:
and there are varieties of services but the same Lord,
and there are varieties of activities
but it is the same God who activates all of them in everyone.
1 Corinthians 12:4-7

The G.I.F.T(2006 to present) Program is SPCP’s response to the call for equity in the development of man’s talent. This program is anchored on the premise that bringing out the giftedness in every individual heightens self-confidence and self-esteem. We believe that since not all students can build up their self-confidence from academic excellence, they can acquire it through their God-given giftedness- their talents.

One of the country’s most comprehensive talent development programs integrated in basic education, GIFT features 32 specialized courses in five (5) talent learning centers. An intensification of the student activity programs of the school, it provides varied opportunities and more meaningful learning experiences for students to hone their talents and skills through well-directed course modules designed and implemented by experts.
