Who We Are

18 years of Game Changing education, pioneering specialized programs that are technology-focused, innovative, and industry-relevant.


Founded in 2002, iACADEMY’s specialized programs in Computing, Business and Liberal Arts, and Design were developed to address the mismatch between graduates of academic institutions and the actual needs of the industry.

Today, iACADEMY has a total of nine (9) Senior High School programs, and fifteen (15) specialized undergraduate degree programs, which are all geared towards preparing students for a highly competitive professional world.

Our campus is strategically located in Makati City’s Central Business District in order to place students within reach of industry practitioners, and over two hundred internship partner organizations. This prestigious network of companies gives students the perfect platform to immerse themselves in their chosen fields during their 960-hour college internship program. This balance of theory and experience-based learning ensures that they become industry-ready as well as industry-relevant upon graduating.

iACADEMY has proven to be one of the best training grounds for future professionals because of its drive and commitment to developing Game Changers who are not only driven to pursue their passions but also inspired to develop real-world solutions to be of service to society.

Now on its 18th year, iACADEMY continues to push the boundaries of innovative education and non-traditional learning by creating an inclusive environment and progressive culture that encourages students to be daring in their pursuit of excellence so they can become the Game Changers that they are meant to be.
