Best Schools and Universities in Laguna and Cavite
June 3, 2021 by Iane Gabriel Mance
They say that one of the greatest gifts you can bestow to your child is the gift of education. As quoted from Malcolm X, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” Educating your children to be prepared for the future is of paramount importance, even more now that the world is rapidly changing. And although we live in a society where information on certain objects is easily found online, educating your children to find the correct verified source is important too – avoiding false information to spread out.
We all know of the great educational institutions found within Metro Manila. But there are other great schools located elsewhere, particularly in the south of Metro Manila. Crown Asia is home to numerous communities in the south where house and lots are for sale in Cavite and Laguna. All are within reach of great educational institutions.
Currently, schools are closed and all students are learning from within the walls of their homes. But, things are getting better. People are getting vaccinated and soon enough, students will be back within the four walls of schools. Although there is no official timetable yet for when students will be back, a house and lot for sale in Cavite or Laguna where your children can easily access great educational institutions is a great investment. Not only is it for your children's benefit, you could also make use of this investment as there are several schools that offer graduate programs. But where are they located and what are these schools? Here is a list of educational institutions within reach in the south. Please note that on this article, the south encompasses Cavite and Laguna, the two provinces adjacent to Metro Manila.
