The Department of Education (DepEd) has announced that the online application for the Senior High School (SHS) voucher program for Grade 10 students in private schools ends today, Wednesday, February 28.

In an advisory Wednesday, the DepEd told private Grade 10 students, who are not Educational Service Contracting (ESC) grantees, that the online application would close at 11:59 p.m.


The online application form may be accessed through the Private Education Assistance Committee (PEAC) Online Voucher Application Portal (OVAP) at


The DepEd said that the voucher program was a financial assistance initiative for Grade 10 students who would pursue SHS education in private schools as well as state-run educational institutions.

“It is one of the several initiatives of the government to make basic education accessible and affordable for Filipino learners nationwide,” the department said in its advisory.

“Grade 10 completers from public schools, including state-run universities and colleges and local universities and colleges, and ESC grantees from private schools are already pre-qualified for the program and do not need to apply,” it added.

Students who would qualify for the program would receive a subsidy in their tuition and other school fees.

Meanwhile, the DepEd said incoming Grade 11 students who passed the Alternative Learning System, Accreditation and Equivalency Test and the Philippine Educational Placement Test may still file their manual applications up to June 15, 2018. /cbb
