Calgary’s Philippine Cultural Center Foundation’s Filipino Language and Culture School is a three-year curriculum that allows students in Elementary to High School to learn the Filipino language and culture and earn 5 credits for each course.

This is a great language and culture program for all High School students. Canadian-born Filipinos or ones than immigrated to Calgary at a young age during their elementary, junior high & high school days should take advantage of. It’s important and beneficial for children to learn a second language or their parent’s native language and learn the cultural aspects of where they came from because it makes them stronger and give them more confidence when they are older.

More about Philippine Cultural Center Foundation
The PCCF began on February 6th, 1996. At that time, various leaders within the Filipino community put their dream to acquire a cultural center to call their own into action. After 5 years of hard work, that dream became a reality on Feb 24th, 2001.

Today, the PCCF continues to live and expand its mandate to strengthen and enrich the existing programs for Calgary’s growing Filipino community, specifically the youth, seniors, families, and newcomers.
